Exclusive: Director to introduce 'The Blob' and 'The Last House on the Left,' among other movies

How much does Rob Zombie know about movies? A terrifying amount, as viewers of HDNET MOVIES will discover in October. EW can exclusively reveal that the rock star and filmmaker (whose directing credits include The Devil’s Rejects, The Lords of Salem, and the 2007 remake of John Carpenter’s Halloween) will host the network’s upcoming movie event, Rob Zombie’s 13 Nights of Halloween.

On each of the 13 nights leading up to Halloween, Zombie will introduce and share his thoughts on the horror films airing during the event. Those movies will include 1958’s creature feature The Blob, Wes Craven’s notorious 1972 shocker The Last House On The Left, 2009’s Renée Zellweger-starring Case 39, and 2012’s The Devil Inside. The full list of films will be revealed at a later date.

Rob Zombie’s 13 Nights of Halloween premieres, Oct. 19 and will run until Halloween itself, Oct. 31.
