Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
House of 1000 Corpses
You'll never get out alive.
Two teenage couples traveling across the backwoods of Texas searching for urban legends of serial killers end up as prisoners of a bizarre and sadistic backwater family of serial killers.
Part of Hoop Tober
House of 1000 Corpses has a lot of things I always look forward to see in a film: it is a homage-filled exploitation movie with many pop culture references that spice the dialogue, there is enough gore, it is exciting and never loses its interest (even though the final act is a truly shameful disappointment), it has a fascinating oldschool appeal and there's a great passion behind the camera, it doesn't take itself too seriously (allowing the dark comedy to work) and it has great characters; the bad guys might be too over the top and silly for their own good, but the central victims are rather compelling with their nerdy talks and Captain Spaulding is…
In Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the scenes around the dinner table with Sally tied to a chair and the manic family endlessly taunting her…(gulp) are terrifying!. What always bothers me about those scenes is their confused behaviour. If you look at the Father, he goes from mocking, shouting - to suddenly being aware of the madness, quietening down and looking perturbed, even frightened by it all - then the switch flips and he’s back to cursing again. It freaks me out just bringing it to mind but those small moments of humanity bring those scenes to ungodly life.
Director Rob Zombie attempts to replicate that vibe of terror for the entire duration of House of 1000 Corpses, and though…
House of 1000 Corpses is a horror film crossed with a music video crossed with a acid trip that manages to be enjoyable even though it sucks balls. While the bad outweighs the good I still found entertainment from a couple of the performances (Sid Haig being the standout), some funny lines, and a select few of the trippy directorial flourishes.
"Goddamn, motherfucker got blood all over my best clown suit."
House of 1000 Corpses is one of those films I really like that most people hate. I'm OK with that because I think everyone has films like that. It just appeals to me and my fucked up sense of humor.
You see the thing is if you take this film as a serious horror it sucks. It's not scary, creepy, or anything like that. Now if you look at it more as a horror comedy I think it works. I found myself laughing out loud more often then not at the ridiculous characters and the fucked up shit they would say and do. There's some pretty dark stuff…
The first 15 minutes are so boss. Damn I want me some of Captain Spaulding's fried chicken. Sid Haig as the Captain almost makes me not hate clowns and Captain Spaulding is one of my favorite characters in film. Also Walton Goggins is so Shane / Boyd in a cameo as a doomed deputy. That is what I liked from the film. RZ tries some John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper homage, but the film only works when the Captain is in the house. Can someone say The Devil's Rejects please?
Un concentrado de horrores que puede pecar de sobredosis de edición, pero que evoluciona el género y abre nuevos caminos. Es posible que sin esta peli no existieran West, Wingard y compañía.
Howdy, folks! You like blood? Violence? Freaks of nature? Well then, come on down to Captain Spaulding's Museum of Monsters and Madmen!
Rewatched for essay reference. This film is overloaded in every imaginable sense.
Eh. Not as gory as my stepdad made it sound. Was pretty good though
Hardcore slasher style horror flic.
This and The Devil's Rejects are hands down two of the best movies to come out of the early 2000's. It's not perfect but boy is it entertaining, This is when Rob Zombie really knew what to do with a movie. It really is a love letter to the haunted house movies of the 60's and 70's and of course the biggest influence is Texas Chainsaw. It's been a while but im really glad i decided to pop this in again after 6 or 7 years.
Not as good as The Devil Rejects, but a fun and at times,pretty intense Halloween flick. And Captain Spaulding is just a gift.

I've got to be honest - when it comes to House of 1000 Corpses I'm a real flip-flopper. Sometimes I watch the film and I'm enraptured and hypnotized by the visual style and delightful madness. Other times I watch it and it's all shrieky noises and headache-inducing editing and off-putting madness. Tonight, however, I found myself enjoying the film a lot.
The pleasure begins before the film even starts. I'd actually forgotten how darn fun the DVD menu is. It's little extra touches like this that I really appreciate. In the past I've always found the character of Jerry to be mind-boggling annoying, but over the past couple of years I've become more familiar with Chris Hardwick and tonight I…
