After releasing his 2012 debut feature movie "Lords of Salem," Rob Zombie is ready to hit the big screen with his next horror story "31" - but this time it requires the little help from you.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Zombie finally shares some intricate details about "31," starting with the time-honored tradition of clowns scaring the crap out of us all. "Maybe when I was a baby or something. I remember seeing this Super 8 footage that my parents made of me at the grand opening of McDonald's or something," says Zombie. "I was a little older than a baby and Ronald McDonald was there, freaking the f--k out of me. I didn't even know it was a clown. It was just a guy with a white face and bright red hair, and a stranger. So I was not too happy. [But] I've never had a fear of clowns. I find clowns fascinating. On one level, they're very entertaining and on another, they're incredibly repulsive."

According to Zombie, the script for "31" is complete and location scouting will begin next week. As of yet, Zombie has not put together a cast for "31."

As Loudwire notes, Rob Zombie is using crowd funding methods to raise a goal of $2 million. The film's Fanbacked page offers some awesome incentives in return for your contributions. Zombie is offering exclusive "31" swag, an autographed movie poster, the opportunity to be an extra in the movie and even an executive producer credit. "If there was a time where someone told me, 'Your name can be forever in the credits of­ 'Star Wars,'' or whatever," Zombie begins, "I'd be like, 'F--k yeah.' That's pretty rad."

    What role will Sherri have? You KNOW she's gonna be in it!
    I still laugh at the fact he cast her as Michael Myers' mother in Halloween who works as a stripper, yet she's practically the only one in the film not to get her tits out, not even at her workplace
    Could be just me, but I think his first 'feature film' came out in 2003...
    I can already picture a Captain Spaulding/Sid Haig cameo! Can't wait for this movie and if I had money I'd definitely help him out! House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects are two of my all time favorites!
    I remember all the hoopla before House Of 1000 Corpses came out about how disgusting and violent and disturbing it was. Granted the subject matter is pretty messed up but I was greatly dissapointed by it. In my opinion The Devil's Rejects is a far superior film. The look, the script, the acting, pretty much everything. Granted he had more money for TDR and of course it is just my opinion. I know a few people that prefer HO1000C...
    Please stop making movies Rob your movies are worse than SciFi channel movies >.>
    I quite like his movies because I don't get scared when I see the plot coming. Hillbilly trailer trash rape/molest someone(s) and then everyone dies? Count me in.
