    It gets an extra star for the inclusion of the Agatha Crispies.

    This structureless gore fest is filled with so much violence and fast cuts to other random images of depravity that it is less of a film and more of an "art" project. It's loose and unoriginal story is barely visible through the noise and images that fill our screen.

    Genialer Horrorfilm!

    Leider gab es so gut wie keine Verbindung zu den Hauptprotagonisten und das Ende war ziemlich unpassend.

    Trotzdem ein genialer Film gerade für Halloween.

    Fucked up shit. Quite average in its delivery though.

    Oh, so there IS a reason I've never heard anything good about this film in spite of the fact that each of his other theatrical efforts has its fans. Got it.

    All joking aside, I'm a pretty big fan of Zombie's aesthetic. Even when it's a bit misguided (Halloween II, for example). Occasionally he'll go a little overboard on the shrill redneck caricatures, but I've never seen such an over-reliance on that trope as there is here. After a promising opening sequence, the film just turns into one obnoxious blast of uninterrupted noise.

    When I first started this Hoop-Tober business, I wanted to learn more about how artists uncovered and exploited fear. But fear is not the same as ugliness. I'm not interested in ugliness for its own sake, and that seems to be the only thing Rob Zombie is interested in. I couldn't wait for this movie to end.

    18. horror movie in October, 2014.

    Watched this inspired by what I watched yesterday - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - but unfortunately, it was nowhere near as good as TCM2.
    Very insane, but doesn't feel cohesive, all the parts with video effects just felt... bleh.
    It's like they combined a wacky, super-dark comedy (good), a serious torture porn movie (bad) and a cheap music video (also bad).

    Still, I'll probably check out The Devil's Rejects soon, since I really liked Zombie's work on Lords of Salem.

    Film #24 of The Hoop-Tober Challenge

    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.

    Sid Haig llevaba 6 años sin hacer ninguna película (desde su participación en "Jackie Brown", donde interpreta a un juez). Rob Zombie vino al rescate y le dio un gran papel.

    Sin temor a errar muy lejos diría que "House of 1000 corpses" es una variante psicodélica de "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre": Juventud curiosa, atmósfera tejana, desesperanza, noche de Halloween, tortura, caras deformes, suciedad y una familia desalmada. Básicamente, el cliché general que deriva de la mente de Tobe…
