It’s the eve of Halloween in Grove Hill, Ohio. A traveling carnival is in town for the weekend and local outcast, Jacob Atkins, has been hired as one of the freaks in the event’s main attraction, “Dr. Death’s Side Show Spook House Spectacular.” Meanwhile, a group of local bullies are planning their annual public hazing of Jacob, but this year, things go too far.
In 2015 Josh Hasty was hired by Rob Zombie to direct and edit a feature length documentary on the making of RZ's next film, "31". The documentary, "IN HELL EVERYBODY LOVES POPCORN", took over a year to shoot, and covers the entire filmmaking process from preproduction through the end of production. Rob Zombie and his producers were openly pleased with the job Josh Hasty did on the documentary. It was released in theaters nation-wide alongside "31" before it was made available as a second disc with the Lionsgate release of "31" on Bluray and DVD in stores worldwide. Josh edited a 5 hour long version of the documentary, which he was eventually able to forge into limited release on VOD. Critics praised Josh Hasty's work as an insightful, comprehensive and well crafted documentary. Forbes Magazine said the documentary alone was worth the purchase of "31".
