The Story Line:

In Halloween 1976, the crowd of carnival staffs, Charly, Panda, Venus, Levon, and Roscoe, were attacked and brought to a large, strange building where the three old people clothe in aristocratic dresses, make up, and powdered wigs, Sister Serpent, Sister Dragon, and their head Father Murder “Napoleon-Horatio-Silas”, told them that they were about to play a game called as “31” and it will take 12 hours. The unit was site in a sequence of maze-like rooms, where they must protect themselves towards the “Heads”, the several murderous jokers who planned to torture and killed them, although the group was given chances for their endurance and the money are spotted in them.

The leading role came across five “Heads”, Psycho-Head, Sick-Head, Schizo-Head, Sex-Head and Death-Head. The carnies finally handle to murder their attacker, but not without supporting their personal casualties, with only Venus, Charly, and Roscoe left active. The remaining three attempts to discover a way off, but only handles to get a number, Venus was trapped in a boiler area, where she is harshly killed by the last Head, Doom-Head, was brought inside by an aristocrats to join in their game. Doom-Head mock Roscoe and Charly, revealed them that the doors have been unlocked to the outside community.

The Writers’ View

The vulgar dialogue, the visual style, the vintage cam filters, and the lead actress are the same with the Zombie and it seems that Mr. Zombie is not open to changing up his style and creates something entertaining and fresh. The camera function of 31 was really nothing special, and there are times though that it is dreadful. It becomes a sick suggestions and there are lots of excessive close ups. It shows that the story pulls on and on with no suspense or tension at a snail pace. There were really no tension or suspense. Although the set-up had some potential and because of Zombie’s track we never had any logic of urgency or anything like that. Sad to say, but the movie for me is awful, dull and boring with no substance at all.
