Horror movie director and shock-rocker Rob Zombie may have been one of the last celebrity guests one would have expected to see on ABC‘s uplifting reality series Extreme Makeover Home Edition – even he thought so! Keep reading to find out what Rob Zombie had to say about his recent appearance on the show’s Halloween episode when he helped out at the Oregon School for the Deaf…
After his appearance on Extreme Makeover Home Edition aired on October 31 (the Halloween episode), horror movie director and shock-rocker, Rob Zombie, told the Washington Post that he was initially surprised to hear from the reality show, saying, “I didnâ€™t understand why they were calling me.”
It all became much clearer when Extreme Makeover Home Edition explained that they wanted him to help revamp the Oregon School for the Deaf’s on site haunted house fundraiser,Â Nightmare Factory, and that the episode would air on Halloween night. Rob jumped at the chance, and later told the Post, “Basically, we refurbished their haunted house from some makeshift thing to a professional, mind-blowing haunted house.”Â He added, “Now they should be making a fortune.”
Rob went on to tell the newspaper that he presently has a haunted attraction running at Universal Studios, so he knew some inexpensive, but cool gags to use for the Nightmare Factory.Â He noted he was impressed with Extreme Makeover Home Edition replacing a dirt floor with 10,000 square feet of concrete, adding several hundred outlets, and creating animatronic characters during the build.
Rob Zombie is currently working on a film entitled Lords of Salem with the producers ofÂ Paranormal Activity. The movie is loosely based on the Salem witch trials and could be out next year.
