These days, Rob Zombie might be better known as a horror auteur than a musician, but the former White Zombie frontman still knows how to get a crowd moving — and screaming. Over the weekend, in Villa Park, Illinois, he hosted the Great American Nightmare, a pre-Halloween scarefest featuring three nights of live music and several harrowing haunted houses. Here are our best photos from Sunday, October 4th, featuring a headlining performance from the head Zombie himself.
