Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare

Step Right Up, Ladies & Gentle-ghouls, the King of Shock-Rock, Rob Zombie, is opening his very own scream park! Based out of the Pomona Fairplex in Los Angeles, CA, The Great American Nightmare will be open from October 10th through November 2nd. Taking its name from song of the same name (click here if you haven’t heard it, it’s freaking awesome), the park will feature three haunted house, each based on one of Zombie’s movies: Haunt of 1,000 Corpses, the Haunted World of El Superbeasto in 3D, and Lords of Salem: Total Black-out. In addition to the three haunts, every night there are multiple live music performances from a variety of artists including Powerman 5000, Twiztid, Blood on the Dance Floor, Emilie Autumn, Winds of Plague, 45 Grave, and of couse, Rob Zombie himself, along with many others. There’s also a beer garden and midway. Needless to say, as a huge RZ fan, I am really wishing I lived in LA right now. Check out the main site below:

  1. Robert Zombie has a very refined aesthetic sensibility. I always enjoyed his album art and rubber Halloween masks more than the music itself.

    But unfortunately he suffers from a similar character flaw as John Kricfalusi, he is self-indulgent to the point of harming the narrative.

    You know, Stephen King calls it "Killing your darlings", you have to cut out the stuff you love that's obstructing the narrative. It's just something you have to do!

    Oh well, I'm sure this will be fun, and more aesthetically cohesive than most of those Halloween horror amusements.
