Rob Zombie Unleashes Inaugural ‘Great American Nightmare’ Halloween-Themed Experience
Rob Zombie is taking his dark passions beyond both film and music by unleashing the inaugural 'Great American Nightmare' in the Los Angeles area this fall. The event combines the most advanced haunted house attractions with an eclectic, not-to-be-missed music festival.
The not-to-be-missed event kicks off Oct. 10 and will be staged every Thursday through Sunday up until Nov. 2 at the Pomona Fairplex (nee FEARplex) in Pomona, Calif. The production is a creative collaboration between Zombie and preeminent haunted house producer Steve Kopelman. It will include an immersive haunted house experience based upon Zombie's own 'The Lords of Salem,' 'The Haunted World of El Superbeasto,' and 'House of 1,000 Corpses' films, complete with 3D effects, animatronics, and a maze that will both thrill, chill and invoke nervous laughter.
In addition, the 'Great American Nightmare' will feature 15 nights of music, featuring acts from indie/punk, EDM, metal, rock and Latin genres. Those who have signed on to play include Andrew W.K., 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 more.
"This is it! The ultimate badass Halloween experience! No one will walk away disappointed," says Zombie. "I am thrilled to bring the Great American Nightmare to California and begin a reign of bloody terror!"
Zombie has also added one special evening that will include a wrestling match featuring members of Lucha Libre USA. Be sure to check the Great American Nightmare website for a performance schedule as well as additional headlining acts that will be revealed in the coming weeks. Tickets are also available at the website for only $30 beginning June 29.
