See it for Richard Brake., September 21, 2016 By C. Morgan (Tennessee) Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: 31 (Prime Video) As a fan of Zombie’s earlier pictures (especially Devil’s Rejects) I came in with high hopes for 31, especially after the mess of Lords of Salem (great concept and imagery, not very coherent). While not as bad as LoS it is certainly not up to the standard of his earlier films. The plot is basically The Running Man with more gore and clown make up. The characters are neither likable or unlikable as we don’t really get to know them as people. They basically have two scenes in the normal world and then the rest of the movie they are in the game. The film has a lot of plot holes (how are viewers able to see the action) and the editing is messy. The film jumps from set piece to set piece without a sense of geography. There is a kill zone, winners and losers are established and then we cut to the next set piece. Whether this is a by product of a low-budget, low-time production or worse an ebb of creativity I cannot tell. Unfortunately the film suffers for it. The kills are there and some of them are juicy but not as many or as memorable as his previous works. Which leads me to the reason you should actually watch this hot mess: Richard Brake. From the opening 2 minutes black and white monologue to his final scene Brake dominates the film as Doom Head. Terrifying, intense and with a sly physicality Brake turns in the best performance. It helps that he gets the best lines and the most memorable (if simplest) look. See this movie for him and suffer through all that middle part. Bonus points though for having the first killer be a Spanish speaking Nazi little person. Let’s hope Rob Zombie gets back some of his fire and creativity that made his earlier films so great. NOTE: As this film was crowdfunded be leery of ecstatic reviews. It’s worth the price of admission but it’s not genius, brutal or particularly good writing.

This review is from: 31 (Prime Video) I watched this through the Shudder channel subscription I recently got, which is pretty darn cool. The movie 31 isn’t what I’d call great but it’s interesting. It’s a combination of Zombie’s humor, Saw style imagery, The Running Man by Stephen King but way more subtle despite being ham fisted, and serial killer psychology. It’s also Zombie without a filter. Crowd funding basically allowed him to really go for it. He really goes for it here. It’s not just that he wants to be arty while indulging in Suicide Squad style day-glo coloring, which David Ayer and Zombie got a lot in common, he also seems determined to change moods on a dime. It’s a quirk from previous movies that was toned down but here is unleashed and Zombie isn’t looking back. Seriously, they got a rather mortifying and genuinely scary/tense scene involving a woman that they can’t tell is a sex slave or a trap. It’s a moment where the characters are put in a serious moral dilemma. It’s followed up by a goofball chainsaw fight, one particularly nasty murder, and then a goofy one. I’ve described about 7 minutes of run time. Whiplash is a good way of describing it. I’m impressed by Zombies determination to be himself even when the results are uneven and frankly gross in a high school boy joke way. Some of the other usual Zombie issues are there. Too much over the top white trash behavior. The language that seems to be trying to hard to be vulgar. I worked construction for years and even I was like I’d never use that many F words give or take. Over use of shakey cam and still shots takes me out of the movie personally. His inability to cast people under the age of 45. It’s an interesting quirk but one that kind of back fires on him occasionally in the sense that half the people in here I don’t think could have the energy to do this stuff. Sheri Moon Zombie is the sole exception. You couldn’t guess her age outside of the way she holds herself like someone with a bit too much experience. None of the issues are enough to really ruin it. I’d never recommend this movie to non-horror fans. It’s gross, goofy, has a lack of respect for basic story telling, is a little too clever, and engages in behavior most people find to be non-PC. For horror fans and off beat film fans, it’s a solid bet. Not the A grade movie you’d hope for but a solid enough film none the less.

This review is from: 31 [Blu-ray + Digital HD] (Blu-ray) 2 1/2 Stars = Fair I love Rob Zombie, but his last two movies left a little to be desired, & the last one, “31,” he is starting to repeat himself, & not overly impressive either. A plot that has been seen before, filled with senseless violence, & truly vulgar language, & actions. You have to be really vulgar to repulse me, but this film works hard on it. Basically a snuff film with no audience connection with the characters. Outcasts, being killed by even further removed outcasts, prodded on by a trio of rich characters that are bored with being rich, & getting their visceral thrills by killing the poor, who they also bet on who willdie last. A metaphor for humanity? Could be. Nothing really to recommend it, other than to people who just love a kill count in their horror films. Zombie even apes his “House Of A 1000 Corpses,” with “31’s” ending. Where did his imagination go? One side note though – Robert Brake’s performance as “Doomhead” is worth watching this film for. His performance as a maniacal, philosophical spouting serial killer, who loves killing more than sex, is as mesmerizing, as it is repulsive. His monologue in the start of the movie is as impressive as any characters from a Tarantino, Scorsese, Rodriguz, or Miller film. The pure genuine malevolence of his psychotic hate for the living, & love of killing them with loving torturous sick pathos, is a sight to be heard. Intense! Zombie must have exhausted his imagination writing this character, & it shows with the lack of anything else remotely imaginative in this film.
