    I haven't seen this since my first viewing 12 years ago. I was haunted by this movie all through the years, which is why I never brought myself to watching it again until now. I dig Rob Zombie's style and his no-holds-barred approach, his "Tarantino-esque" banter when nothing's happening, and way out there scares. My second time viewing I noticed the bad acting a little more, and was more than annoyed with some characters (who would ever date Rain Wilson's…

    One of the few movies out there where evil wins.

    wearing its genre influences on its sleeve, Zombie proceeds to be the trash cinema Oliver Stone.

    A lot of Rob Zombies artistic work seems to be the kind of thing people either fucking love or fucking hate. I happen to fucking love most of his endeavours and this is no exception. This movie isn't exactly bustling in the substance department but it definitely works as a gigantic visceral extravaganza of horror and gothic imagery. It has many of the quality's and vibez that his music videos and music do.

    I personally really fucking enjoy myself watching…

    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.

    31 Days of Horror, day one
    If a 14 year-old boy watched Natural Born Killers and every Tarantino film and decided to make a horror film, it would probably look something like this. It has potential - a fun concept and some striking character designs - but it's all too much. It's unnecessarily over-stylised, there are no likable characters (the film clearly sides with the 'villains'), and Rob Zombie's dialogue is trying far too hard, with every other word being 'fuck'. A few good moments here and there,but a missed opportunity.

    My Scavenger Hunt Of The Dead
    House of 1000 Corpses is one of the worst horror films I've ever seen. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. The only highlight is the Captain Spaulding character, who is pretty funny, but other than that it's just a collection of flashing inverted images and scenes stolen from classic horrors. I think Rob Zombie should stick to music because he can't write a film script to save his life.

    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…

    This movie is a big old bag of fun. It's nasty, violent, somewhat gory, artsie, funny, and tacky all rolled into one. Nothing too original here, but it gets the job done. A really great entry by Zombie that set up for the even better sequel(in my opinion).

    Local TV horror show hosts, haunted house tours around Halloween, urban legend houses of sadism, cliched horror movie characters. There's not one above Rob Zombie's first film doesn't touch on. Over the top play acting and make-up effects that are all brightly lit and cut like a music video make this neither creepy nor scary, just tedious. 32 of 100

    There's a lot of good ideas here but they're undermined by some very odd stylistic choices, namely montages of stretched-to-16:9 SD DV footage+scenes from old horror films+35mm processed to look "bad" with colours reversed, and some snuff films Zombie probably got from LimeWire; basically him sticking a bunch of stuff he finds cool in the middle of scenes. That could probably, however, be used to better effect, and it's after all a directorial debut. I hear The Devil's Rejects is a lot better so I'm looking forward to that.
