The news of the track was announced on Zombie’s Instagram account, the place where he most often contacts his fans (it was from Instagram that the public learned details of Zombie’s most recent film, “The Munsters”). The filmmaker said he was working on recording the track that very day, posting, “In the studio today recording a new director’s commentary for HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES. Last one I did was 20 years ago.”
He also pointed out that his parking spot at the recording studio was, quite randomly, located right next to that of Chuck Norris.
The Bloody Disgusting article also pointed out that the Blu-ray will possess the usual litany of special features, including interviews with the cast (including Zombie himself, the late Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, Karen Black, Rainn Wilson, Chris Hardwick, and others), a brief making-of documentary film, and other behind-the-scenes footage.
The 2-disc Blu-ray will be released through Lionsgate, and a limited edition steelbook will be available exclusively at Best Buy. There must be an irony indeed of entering such a notoriously sterile retail environment like Best Buy to pick up one of the bloodiest and least pleasant movies of the last 20 years. Be sure to wear a clown costume when you pick up your copy, as to frighten the clerks and other customers. Then blast Zombie’s cover of “Brick House” that he recorded with Lionel Ritchie especially for the film.
The Best Buy version will cost $21.99. The expanded edition will retail for $44.99, as it will also contain miniature art prints, a miniature poster, and a 60-page book of photos.
