I don’t use the word “extravaganza” often, but the word “event” simply doesn’t cut it when it comes to the Great American Nightmare.
Presented by Rob Zombie, the Great American Nightmare will take over Los Angeles this Halloween season.
“This bone-chilling experience will combine the most advanced haunted house attractions with a not-to-be-missed music festival from top artists in hard rock, alternative, EDM, and more, every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from October 10 through November 2, 2013 at the Fairplex FEARplex in Pomona, CA, just outside Los Angeles,” says a press release.
The extravaganza is a “creative collaboration between masters of the macabre Rob Zombie and preeminent haunted house producer Steve Kopelman, the fully immersive haunted house experience will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films: Lords Of Salem Total Black Out, The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto 3D, and Haunt Of 1,000 Corpses.
“The shocking — and sometimes disturbing — fright attractions will offer a three-dimensional experience with animatronics and effects, a maze that is the ultimate definition of claustrophobia and fear, sudden chills and startling thrills, and salacious humor that will make one scream with fright and laughter.”
“As if these sinister attractions weren’t enough, Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will also feature 15 nights of music from top national and regional artists in the indie/punk, EDM, metal, rock and Latin genres including Andrew WK, BL3ND, Blood On The Dance Floor, Dirtyloud, Dirtyphonics, Doctor P, Emilie Autumn, Evol Intent, Fei-Fei, Goldfinger, Heavygrinder, Kottonmouth Kings, Metalachi, One More Time, Ozomatli, Reel Big Fish, Terravita, The Used, Twiztid, William Control, Zomboy, and many more.”
That’s one hell of a shitty lineup.
Nice to see Rob’s aligning himself with such talent. Blood On the Fucking Dance Floor? Come on, man. What’s next for Rob — the Gathering of the Juggalos?
“In addition to music, one special night will also feature the outrageous pro wrestling sensations Lucha Libre USA.”
