Rob Zombie surprised many of his fans earlier this year with the announcement that he was filming a follow-up to his 2005 The Devil's Rejects, not only because we hadn't heard about a new film from the director but also because the main characters of the film all died, seemingly ruling out a sequel.

The characters from the film were introduced in House of 1000 Corpses, Zombie's debut film. Moseley's Otis Driftwood was one of the film's standout characters, in addition to Sid Haig's Captain Spaulding and Sheri Moon Zombie's Baby Firefly, with the trio getting their own film with Devil's Rejects.
The trio has gone on to appear in various Zombie films in the years since, with this new film featuring even more Zombie film regulars. In addition to creating a compelling story, the film also served as a reunion of sorts.

"One thing I can say, when this movie comes out, your guys's mindsies are gonna be big time blown! Thanks for your thoughts & prayers (haha), Otis D."
