Alright, so yesterday the first teaser poster for Rob Zombie's T-REX dropped and it's Frazetta-esque 70s exploitation vibe only raised more questions about what the film will ultimately be about. Well I was contacted by a late night tipster who writes "it's about a wrestler named Tyrannosaurus Rex who is on the run from a biker gang from hell. The idea for the film is loosely based on the comic book Zombie did with Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) entitled THE NAIL." Here's the synopsis for the comic Hunted in one of the most desolate regions of America, preyed upon by an evil that does not sleep, Rex Hauser is The Nail - and it's time he took a stand. A semi-pro wrestler, Hauser has been touring the country performing at small-time arenas until the fateful night he and his family run afoul of a bloodthirsty gang of Satanic bikers stalking the North Dakota Badlands. Now he's a lone man fighting for the survival of his loved ones in a no-holds-barred standoff against the forces of Hell itself! The Nail is a relentless, unflinching portrait of the heart of darkness, and what one man will sacrifice to hold it at bay. So there you have it folks. If this is indeed an accurate description of the film than there is no question that it is following a 70 grindhouse style. And, considering its got a "biker gang from hell," we weren't too far off with our Mad Max guess.

I always argue with a friend about who is a worse director - Rob Zombie or Uwe Boll. Mr Zombie has proved me right, pay up Johnnie.

So I can't comment on Devils Rejects or any of Zombie's other films.. But I thought Halloween was friggin great, can't a rock star turned director get some love? (pulls lice out of nappy hair)
