JULY 24th 2013

Innovative musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie will unleash his Great American Nightmare on Los Angeles this Halloween season, every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (October 10 through November 2). The hours are 6:30pm until 11:00pm on Thursdays and Sundays, 6:30pm until 1:00am on Fridays and Saturdays. This bone rattling experience will combine the most state-of-the-art haunted house attractions with a not-to-be-missed music festival from some top artists in hard rock, alternative, EDM, and more, at the Fairplex FEARplex, 1101 W. McKinley Avenue, Pomona, CA, just outside Los Angeles.

 “This is it! The ultimate badass Halloween experience! No one will walk away disappointed,” says Zombie. “I am thrilled to bring The Great American Nightmare to California and begin a reign of bloody terror!”

The FEARplex for Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare will include 150,000 square feet of horror and entertainment and is not geared towards young children or the faint of heart. Patrons should be prepared for maximum scares!

Are you ready to experience this, the horrifying and sometimes disturbing fright attractions will offer a three dimensional experience with animatronics and effects, a maze that is the ultimate definition of claustrophobia and fear, sudden chills and shocking thrills and suggestive humour that will make one scream with dismay and laughter. Come on, experience the thrill and dare to be scared.

At Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare, patrons will sequentially enter three different attractions, each completely different in look, theme and effects   An ingenious collaboration between lords of the macabre Rob Zombie and a distinguished haunted house producer, the riveting haunted house experience will feature attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films:

LORDS OF SALEM TOTAL BLACK OUT: This chilling attraction based on Zombie’s 2012 The Lords Of Salem independent horror film is designed to twist the mind. It will bring your attention to some senses while limiting others. Fear of the dark, claustrophobia, and fear of the unknown will be preyed on as the visitor attempts to negotiate this sixty-degree maze. I am getting chills just typing this.

THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO 3D:  Utilizing Chromadepth glasses, this avant-garde attraction will take the patron right into the middle of the tongue-in-cheek world of Rob Zombie’s El Superbeasto 2009 animated exploitation musical horror comedy film based on the comic book series of the same name. The attraction’s unique surprise entrance, brilliant colors, sudden chills and startling thrills, and suggestive humour will make one scream with fright and laughter. Do you dare.

This horrifying attraction pays homage to the 10-year anniversary of the exploitation horror film House Of 1,000 Corpses, directed by Rob Zombie. This intense, classic haunted house will take visitors on a walking journey through a recreation of the film’s “Museum of Monsters & Madmen” along with an expanded “Murder Ride,” confronting notorious serial killers along the way. This high impact, highly detailed attraction will use state of the art animatronics, video effects, costuming, sound, scents and lights.

Wait…there is more, The Great American Nightmare Monster Midway will offer outdoor screenings of classic horror films, a DJ, food vendors, beer, wine and spirits, and much more, with freak show characters roaming throughout the grounds each night.

You think that is enough, well think again, this is Rob Zombie we are talking about and he always gives his all, so along with the horror comes 15 nights of music from top national and regional artists in the indie/punk, EDM, metal, rock and latin genres, including Andrew WK, DJ BL3ND (Friday October 18), October 10thBlood on the Dance Floor, Dirtyloud, Dirtyphonics (November 1), Doctor P, Emilie Autumn, Evol Intent, Fei-Fei, Goldfinger, Kottonmouth Kings (Saturday, October 12), Metalachi, One More Time, Ozomatli (Sunday October 13), 3OH!3 (October 10th),  Reel Big Fish, Terravita, The Used, Twiztid, William Control, Zomboy, and many more including the man himself, Rob Zombie, headlining closing night of music performances (November 2) at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare with special guests Eagles of Death Metal, Powerman 5000 and 45 Grave. 

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is produced by Rob Zombie, Steve Kopelman and Andy Gould, along with event music producers Kevin Lyman, who has this to say “Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is going to be so terrifying, you won’t catch me in any of the three haunted houses! For those of you who are scaredy cats like me, there will be plenty of other attractions that are guaranteed to entertain, including a special concert each night.“ John Reese,  also spoke these words “Great American Nightmare is one of the most exciting projects I have ever been associated with,” says Nightmare music co-producer John Reese. “The opportunity to work with the genius that is Rob Zombie is awe inspiring. This is set up to be one of the CAN’T MISS EVENTS OF THE YEAR!”
