Dailyand Malcolm McDowell. A period piece set inthe film is about five carnies who are kidnapped by a gang of clowns called "The Heads" and forced to play a survival game called "31", where they are chased by the clowns through a maze of rooms over 12 hours, the penalty for capture being torture and murder, while bets are placed on their progress.
The film was crowdfunded online twice at fanbacked. During Halloweena group of carnival workers, Charly, Venus, Panda, Levon and Roscoe gleefully travel through the countryside. Later that night, the group is attacked by people disguised as scarecrows and taken to a strange, large building where three elderly people wearing aristocratic clothes, powdered wigs and make up — known as Sister Dragon, Sister Serpent and their leader, Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder — tell them that they are going to play the game "31" and that it will last for the next 12 hours.
The group is placed in a series of Instrumenti - Tru (Vinyl, Album, LP) set of rooms, where they must defend themselves against the "Heads", several murderous clowns who intend to torture and murder them, all the while the group are given odds for their survival and bets are placed on them.
Outside World - Various - Studio 33 - The 31st Story carnies eventually manage to kill their assailants, but not without sustaining their own casualties, with only Charly, Venus and Roscoe left alive. The remaining three try to find a way out, but only manage to get one of their number — Venus — trapped inside a boiler room, where she is brutally murdered by the final Head, Doom-Head, who was brought in by the aristocrats to join the game.
Doom-Head taunts Charly and Roscoe, telling them that the doors have been opened to the outside world. The two manage to make it to one of the exits, however Roscoe urges Charly to go on without him, as the night's event has left him too severely wounded to progress.
Roscoe is then stabbed to death by Doom-Head. Charly, who made it outside but found herself in the middle of nowhere, makes her way into an abandoned house where she is ambushed by Doom-Head. He almost defeats her, however Doom-Head is stopped by the aristocrats, who tell him that time has run out and Charly must go free. The aristocrats are concerned that Charly is the first person to win "31".
This doesn't satisfy Doom-Head; later he catches up with Charly, who is covered in blood and headed down an isolated road. He alights from a van and takes out his daggers as he and Charly prepare for one last confrontation as the film ends, leaving their fates unknown. Plans to create 31 were first announced in May via a teaser poster that showed the Outside World - Various - Studio 33 - The 31st Story "a Rob Zombie film", a bloody clown face, and the number "31".
Zombie commented on the speculation, stating that it would not follow Captain Spaulding and would be an original story and was not based on any previous work. Zombie also stated that he would use crowdfunding to cover part of the movie's costs, Sugar Mama Blues - Son Thomas* - Good Morning School Girl "as the years go on, the game changes all the time, and a movie that you could get made years ago, you cannot get Outside World - Various - Studio 33 - The 31st Story anymore, because the business changes, things change.
Zombie came up with the idea for 31 after reading a statistic that stated that Halloween is the "Number One day of the year when people go missing for some reason" and thought that it would make a good premise for a film. The site's consensus reads " 31 delivers all the high-energy gore Rob Zombie fans have come to expect, but a lack of fresh ideas and likable characters mean only the already converted need apply".
Much of the negative reaction to the film centered around claims that the film was forced and unoriginal, with Variety writing that the "energetic exercise in forced badassery will be too silly and self-conscious to feel genuinely edgy, despite all the blood spilt and familiar taboos violated. But ultimately, it feels rushed and leaves one with the sense of an unfinished Outside World - Various - Studio 33 - The 31st Story . Shock Till You Drop gave the film approval with a caveat saying "Rob Zombie's 31 succeeds as a throwback to the days of quickie exploitation movies.
That's exactly what it is trying to be, and what it is. So, if you want caviar, keep looking. But if you are in the mood for a candy-colored bacon I Got You Sucker - Various - Hard Techno Mafia of a flick with extra grease and BBQ sauce, 31 is for you".
