Rob Zombie has teamed with ZUUS Media and CraveOnline for a horror filmmaking contest, The Zombie Horror Picture Show Challenge. Fans of the filmmaker and musician are invited to create a three-minute short horror film for the chance to have their submission premiere across ZUUS, CraveOnline and Zombie’s official website.
The contest was launched to celebrate the release of Zombie’s first concert film, ‘The Zombie Horror Picture Show,’ by Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/UMe. The movie debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Music DVD chart when it was released on May 19, and remained in the chart’s top spot during its second week.
‘The Zombie Horror Picture Show,’ which is available on Blu-ray, DVD and longform digital video, features a set of 16 of Zombie’s classic songs, including ‘Dragula,’ ‘Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town,’ ‘Living Dead Girl,’ ‘More Human Than Human’ and the cover of Grand Funk Railroad’s ‘We’re An American Band.’ The film, which was recorded over two nights in Texas, features Zombie’s elaborate, multi-media production that includes SFX, animatronic robots, pyrotechnics and a state-of-the-art light show.
