Rob Zombie is a world-famous musician. He is mainly famous for the massive success in making music for horror movies. He produced music for a lot of different Hollywood movie hits. Some of the most renowned film hits are “Living Dead Girl” and “Dragula.” These movies brought him colossal fame, and because of it, he found his spot in a heavy metal stage and rock music. The musician is also the producer and writer of “House of 1000 corpses,” and he made a “Halloween” remake.
According to the success in making movies and in his music career, it’s not a surprise that his wealth is also impressive.
Robert Cummings was born on January 12, 1965, in Haverhill, Massachusetts. His real name is Robert Cummings. Zombie’s parents, Robert and Loise Cummings, were carnival workers. His younger brother, Micheal David, is also well known as a lead singer of the metal band Powerman 5000.
After finishing high school, he started to attend Parsons School of Design in New York. In the same time, he was working as a production assistant on “Pee – Wee’s Playhouse.” Rob co-founded heavy metal band in 1985 together with his girlfriend, Sean Yseult. The name of the group was White Zombie, and he named the band after Bela Lugosi’s horror movie.
First two albums of the White Zombie’s were not very famous. However, Geffen Records noticed them in 1992 after their fourth play. Shortly after this, they released a third album which was called La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One. This album was sold in over two million copies in the United States. In 1998, White Zombie disbanded after a total of four albums and rating at No. 59 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
In the same year, Zombie released album Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside the Spookshow International. This album was sold in over three million copies.
He released his second album, Sinister Urge, in 2001 and was sold in over a million copies. The musician also built his record label called Zombie A-Go-Go records.
After this, Rob focused on the film career, but in 2010 he returned to the music career with the album Hellbilly Deluxe 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool. In April 2016, Zombie released his sixth album called The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.
In addition to his music success, Zombie also has enormous fame in the films. He started his movie career in 2003 when he directed his first film, “House of 1000 Corpses.” The movie was not received very well with some critics because it had too many scenes of violence. This opinion was appreciated widely, so Universal dropped it because of the fear that will receive an NC-17 rating.
After two years, Rob produced a sequel of “House of 1000 Corpses” which is called “The Devil’s Rejects.” This part had much more positive reviews. In 2007 his focus was again on the movie career, so he made a remake of the “Halloween” movie. The reviews were mixed, so it received both positive and negative critics. Two years later, he released a sequel, “Haloween II,” which got a lot of negative opinions both from audience and critics.
In 2011, Zombie decided to take a different approach, and instead of the violence, he tried to create atmosphere and tension. In that time he made a movie called “The Lords of Salem,” and the project had mixed reviews from critics and audience.
After five years, Zombie produced one more film called “31.” The movie is about five carnival workers who are forced to fight homicidal clowns. In July 2019, a trailer for his movie was released. He decides to make one more sequent for the “House od 1000 Corpses.” This installment is called “3 from Hell.”
Interestingly, the star of this movie is his wife, Sheri Moon Zombie. Next, to her, the actors are also Sid Haig and Bill Moseley. We can expect to see this film in theaters on September 16.
