House Of 1,000 Corpses (Broadway Musical)— House Of Tortured Souls

Rob Zombie was seen on Larry King’s interview series LARRY KING NOW (Hulu) discussing how he would like to turn his first film House Of 1000 Corpses into a Broadway musical. One specific question King asked Zombie was “What do you really want to go in life that you have not had the chance to?” To which Zombie responded: 

       As crazy as it sounds, I feel that my first film House Of 1000 Corpses- which is kinda campy in a weird way, which is why at the time I wasn’t that thrilled with it- I think would make a great Broadway musical. Because it’s veru much- when you go to Broadway now it’s like Spider-Man, it’s The Addams Family, it’s Spamalot, you know? So that movie would translate well, I think because it’s just ridiculous.”

For those who may not be familiar with this movie (which I suggest you watch ASAP), House Of 1000 Corpses is a story of a twisted family that two couples stumble upon when their empty fuel tank and a flat tire happens and lead them down the road. This film was written and directed by Zombie and stars his wife Sherri Moon Zombie, Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Karen Black, Rainn Wilson, Walton Goggins, and Tom Towles

Now before we start to get excited, let’s just keep in mind that this interview was from 2013. For me personally, all I have to say is YES YES YES! If Evil Dead: The Musical got a shot to be made, I don’t see why Rob Zombie’s film can’t have a chance for a Broadway debut, especially with the horror scene coming to arise. But with that just being in the talks, us fans will just have to wait for Zombie’s third Firefly film Three From Hell coming out this year.
