Tickets are now on sale for Event Cinema’s Halloween screening of 3 From Hell, Rob Zombie’s conclusion to the Firefly family trilogy (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects). Sheri Moon Zombie and Danny Trejo also return.

3 From Hell plays in select New Zealand cinemas 31 October. Find times and book tickets via the link below.
