    Pretty bad movie. The plot is all over the place and while it's creepy in the strangest way, it's not scary or visually striking in any way.

    Assez grosse surprise d'avoir autant aimé ce film, considérant que le monde entier semble le détester, incluant moi en version 2003. House of 1000 Corpses n'est pas un pastiche, c'est même à peine un film d'horreur; c'est plutôt un hommage dans le sens le plus exclusif du terme. Un spectateur qui n'aurait pas déjà vu une bonne quantité de films d'horreur des années 70 (Texas Chainsaw Massacre en tête) ne tirerait que bien peu de plaisir de ce qui se…

    Pourquoi tant de haine envers ce film? Je n'aurais jamais pensé me porter à la défense de Rob Zombie, mais ce film est une excellente comédie...

    Mostly a rehash of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and every other movie Rob Zombie likes. It's not good but it's perfectly fine for folding laundry to. 
    I don't know enough about cameras to really explain, but there's a quality to the image that gives the whole thing about as much intensity as a Mr Show sketch. I never really knew how comedic it was trying to be, versus how dramatic it was failing to be.

    Film #19 of the April 2016 Scavenger Hunt
    29. A film from a prominent artist outside of cinema.

    "Goddamn, motherfucker got blood all over my best clown suit."

    Not enough of Captain Spaulding and Walton Goggins to compensate for the lack of a cohesive plot, and annoying characters we were supposed to be rooting for; and too much of Bill Moseley's Otis, the usually cheap dialogue featured in Rob Zombie's films, and Sheri Moon Zombie's annoyingly forced laugh to make…

    rob zombie's encyclopedic knowledge of the genre seems impressive, but his mad frenzied approach to throwing it all together makes it feel incoherent. it translates to zombie's visual mania too, not settling enough to let a mood fester and rampaging through off the wall inserts, negative imaging, black and white scenes, and repetitive jarring cuts, leaving it feeling more like an experimental patchwork as opposed to a true homage.

    Rob Zombie is one of the most interesting directors out there right now. His films are a mix of classic Grindhouse exploitation films and a Nine Inch Nails music video with Eli Roth-like gore and Tarantino dark comedy over it. But that's only describing House of 1000 Corpses. His other works are weirdly different as well. Halloween 2 is a strange David Lynch-esque remake of the sequel to the horror classic. El Superbeasto, the movie version of the comic written…

    Homage filled, gritty, campy, and exploitative. Many of the things I specifically look for in a good horror or slasher flick. It doesn't make an attempt to flesh out characters we know will die or give our villains a morally controversial reason to do it. Crazy people killing kids in creative ways. The cast is vibrant, hilarious, and downright terrifying, as well as the wonderfully diverse setpieces. It deserves its place as a cult classic. That said, the tired trope…

    Multi homenaje a los 70' y 80', Creepy, Fangoria,a la serie B con mayusculas ,a los monsters. Valorar vosotros mismos sus personajes, Capitán Spaulding , el Dr Satán y la familia Firefly, que nivelon de frikis. Es evidente que la temática ya esta mas que explotada pero aquí lo que importa es la composición ,si a todo ello sumamos que es la primera incursión en el cine de Rob, y que con ello a marcado estilo, creo que no se puede pedir más.

    This movie is really hard for me to review.

    It isn't really a good movie. It's weird. It's disgusting in parts. It's actually closer to a music video than to a horror movie.

    But regardless, I caught myself actually enjoying this movie. Sid Haig is just one of my favorite humans, and his character Captain Spaulding is such a great character.
    Actually, the whole Firefly Family is pretty interesting.

    I usually enjoy those movies with real human horror, like Hostel…

    Fishboy!

    As much of a total mess as I remember but some evoctative images and moments that would become more realized in later movies - 31 in particular, which feel like a more assured take on similar material.
