It's a fanboy's highlight reel of homages, without any of the credibility or context that made most of the films [Zombie is] inspired by so fine.
Isn't as unwatchable as other similar movies, but it's still pretty deplorable and offensive.
31 may well satisfy the witching-hour masses. But will it get under anyone's skin? Dream on.
Zombie may not be working outside of his comfort zone, but 31 is one of his most impressive films to date.
The Rob Zombie brand promises hard-core horror and scuzzy atmosphere, and "31" delivers just that. Even on autopilot, Zombie makes movies that hit hard and leave a stain.
A grindhouse slog of unrelenting bad taste.
Rob Zombie can do better than 31. For proof, just watch any other Rob Zombie movie.
This hamfisted attempt to cash in on Halloween is a vile, crass, circus maximus of grindhouse gore.
