Rob Zombie ruins my day, officially nixes “Werewolf Women of the S.S.” feature-length project

A. Quinton — May. 15th 2012

I saw this on the Twitter feed and it wrecked my morning. Rob Zombie just talked to Screen Crush about his current film project, The Lords of Salem, and what he won’t be working on next: a feature-length version of the Grindhouse faux-trailer Werewolf Women of the S.S., which he says was

…just what it was, it was a fake trailer for a Quentin Tarantino movie. That’s all it was ever suppose to be, it was never going to be a full movie.

I guess I’m not surprised, since he’s already downplayed the concept, but after years of hopeful rumour-mongering, it’s a shame to hear the official “no”. I’m in a conference hall in Boston right now, but as soon as I get back to my hotel room I’m going to listen to Werewolf, Baby! and have a little cry.

    Man, someone else could make it. :/

  • I once read that Zombie shot an insane amount of footage — well over 30 minutes by some estimates — which he then boiled down to what we saw in the trailer. Even if he doesn’t want to flesh the story out to feature length, at the very least he could take the material he already has in the can and fashion it into a short, no matter how disjointed the end result might be.

    That’s a great idea! Considering actual grindhouse movies were often disjointed and full of stock fottage and filler, he might even be able to fill out a full length one.
