Ladies and gentlemen, this is it: the moment you’ve been training for your entire post-Astrocreep-life. The call just came in. After all the help and hope and encouragement and confidence that he’s selflessly given to your freaky ass over the years with his inspirational and life-affirming brand of stylized gore-core, Rob Zombie needs YOUR help!

Yes, it’s true. In a conversation with Rolling Stone, good ol’ Rob has just unveiled a crowdfunding campaign for his newest horror film, entitled 31.

“The director is offering up a variety of high-quality rewards to people who want to support the movie, including autographed posters, a chance for Zombie to follow a winner on Twitter, a winner’s name in the credits, a lifetime laminate to see Zombie on tour at any show and a gig as an extra in 31,” Rolling Stone deftly writes. “Zombie will also offer selected props from his movies, including Halloween masks and giant crosses from House of 1000 Corpses

But I know how it goes; since most of you people out there reading this are like most people, you’ll likely want to hear more rhetoric about how cool and important and special fan-funding is before you shell out your dough. Well, you’re in luck! Here’s some impassioned words from Zombie himself that you can stroke your beard and nod along to:

I’m crowd funding because I realize that it’s an incredible opportunity to engage the fans. They’ve always been the most important thing for me because, with metal and horror, the fans aren’t just fans – it’s their life, their lifestyle. They live and breathe it, as I do, and any way that you can bring the people that are as passionate about it as you are into the process is a win-win for everybody.

Right?!? I mean, what else do you need to know?

Wait, what’s that you say?? “What’s the movie about?”!?! HOW DARE YOU.
