Launch Radio Networks is reporting that Rob Zombie is about two weeks away from completing work on his second directorial effort, "The Devil's Rejects", and he says the movie is more violent and more psychologically intense than his first film, 2003's "House of 1000 Corpses". In fact, Zombie had to submit the movie to the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) eight times, making cuts each time, before it would grant the film an R rating. But Zombie told Launch it wasn't the movie's physical violence that bothered the ratings board. "There was a couple of scenes in particular they just could not get over," he explained. "And, you know, I would talk to them and I'd go, 'Well, what can I cut?' There's no nudity, there's no bad language, there's no violence, there's no nothing.' They're like, 'Yeah, but the tone is too intense.' That literally is like someone watching a comedy and telling you it's too funny, make it less funny."
Zombie says he and the ratings board eventually came to a compromise to get the film its R rating.
"The Devil's Rejects", which stars Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie, opens in theatres on July 22.
Rob Zombie is also working on a new studio album, although he does not have a firm release date for the record. Zombie will, however, headline the second stage at this summer's Ozzfest, which begins on July 15 in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
