Of all the network television shows you would least expect to hear Rob Zombie is making a special appearance on, I think it’s safe to say ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” would probably be pretty high on most people’s list.
The hard rockin’ horrormeister will indeed be stopping by on the show best known for building lavish homes for needy families this Halloween night for a spooktacular edition of the feel-good reality program. I’ll let the blurb from ABC’s press release touting their week of Halloween themed programming explain:
On a special Halloween-themed build, “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and famed horror film director/heavy metal musician Rob Zombie traveled to Salem, Oregon, to meet the students at the Oregon School for the Deaf (OSD). The OSD’s annual Nightmare Factory, a spine-tingling haunted house, generates much-needed income for the 140-year-old financially-strapped school, a place which students consider their second home. But the 12,000-square-foot basement where the Nightmare Factory is usually held has become frightfully unsafe. The “EM:HE” design team had just seven days to make the OSD basement safe again and trick it out in a scary and spectacular way. Marlee Matlin also surprises the students during their visit to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
The Rob Zombie episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” airs Sunday, October 31st, at 8/7 Central on ABC.
With any luck the episode will end with Ty Pennington getting skull fucked. That is something long overdue.
