Halloween is coming! Halloween is coming!

Just as the summer heat is starting to get you down, Rob Zombie has announced his Great American Nightmare will be returning to Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, IL (just outside Chicago) for its second engagement from September 25-November 1. Tickets go on sale this Friday, July 31.

This is pretty much the ultimate combination of music and horror. For just over a month, Zombie’s cinematic brilliance will be brought to life with a living carnival of madness. The man himself will even be performing two shows (October 2 and 4).

“I am thrilled to be bringing The Great American Nightmare back to the Chicago area for its second year,” says Rob Zombie. “After last year’s overwhelming response we’ve decided to return with a completely new Nightmare. It’s more vile and disgusting than ever. Have fun.”

Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare 2015 will feature three attractions based on Zombie’s own horror films:

Captain Spaulding’s Clown School In 3D: This irreverent school of pure terror is a hallucinogenic trip through the mind of Captain Spaulding (House Of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects). Startle after startle will thoroughly frighten even the bravest patrons, who won’t know if they should be laughing, screaming or crying.

The Devil’s Rejects: The murderous, backwoods Firefly family takes to the road to escape a vengeful police force that isn’t afraid of being as ruthless as its target. Guests will become part of the state troopers’ search and destroy mission against the Firefly family, who are wanted for over 75 homicides and disappearances.

31: On October 30, 1975, five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage until the following night (Halloween), and are put in a compound named “Murder World.” They’re told that they are there to take part in a game named “31,” where the goal is to survive the next 12 hours. This is made difficult by the fact that they are not alone in “Murder World” — a violent gang of evil clowns are there and stalking their every move.
