Given his predilection for visuals and theatrics, it's almost shocking that shock rocker Rob Zombie has never released a concert DVD before. But "The Zombie Horror Picture Show," which rolls out May 19, is indeed his first foray into that realm.
"I felt like I could do it justice because I understand both sides -- the director side and the performer side," he explains. "People that don't usually get hung up on things that aren't exciting. I wasn't looking for something that was perfect or over-polished, because that's boring. I was looking for something that really captured the moment, and I felt that it could really be done by having cameras everywhere, and mostly in the crowd because the crowd is such an important factor, at least at our shows. I didn't want to see the band all clean and perfect; I wanted the chaos of the crowd at all times, 'cause that's how it feels when you're on stage. It's hot and it's sweaty and sometimes things feed back and sometimes people make mistakes and sometimes it's a mess. But that's why it's a live concert, and that's what I wanted to show."
