More on Rob Zombie and 3 From Hell

The movie’s been hyped up for a while now with Zombie frequently dropping hints about possible characters. Zombie also revealed that we could expect “many bizarre cameos” in 3 From Hell, including one from Chaz Bono.

The film is rated R for “strong sadistic violence, language throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use.” Fans have been waiting for the sequel for over ten years, and the first trailer highlights the two past films. Check out the first clip below.
