    Pura serie B. Infenitisimalmente inferior a su secuela, "Los renegados del diablo".

    This was my first Rob Zombie movie and I have to admit, I have no incentive to watch any more of his films.

    I get that Zombie's original works are supposed to be love letters to the B-Horror movies of the 70s and 80s with their low budget and high gore content. However, those types of films had a charm to them which House of 100 Corpses lacks.

    House is one of the most vile, vulgar and tasteless movies I…

    Great fun and gratuitous horror flick. Although light on the scares and the originality. Zombie deserves some credit for making a mainstream "grindhouse" movie before Tarantino and Rodriguez.

    Acting through the assumption that The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is about the perils of cultural tourism, Zombie specifically adds art and lore to the definition of culture. The titular house is an extension of Captain Spaulding's sideshow, of course, just as the entire film is an extension of Dr. Wolfenstein's public-access/public-domain show. So while its FX brigade stands firmly on the gross-out side of horror--which wears thin--it follows the right frame of reference. The shows play nightly because they're…

    Of all the Zombie films I've seen, this is the only one that's lacked any sort of subtext or pathos. I read it as a first-time filmmaker tinkering around with influences to craft his own aesthetic. It's fun, but he would go on to establish himself as a hit-or-miss artist that's undeniably one of the most unique American directors working today.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Between this film and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", i'm convinced that Texas will never become my vacation destination any time soon. So much shit happens down south, i'm fine with freezing my ass off.

    Anyways, Rob Zombie's "House of 1000 Corpses" was an OK film. It felt very stylized, which is no surprise coming from Zombie. The acting was... mediocre. The only character that really blew me away was Sid Haig as Captain Spaulding. The rest of the film just…

    I'm not going to touch the plot, it is what it is and that's pretty much what you would have expected "rob zombie's house of 1000 corpses" to be circa the year 2003.

    50% of the movie is pretty great fun. Unfortunately, the rest of it is bad digital zooms, fake vhs footage, negative polarization and other distracting distractions.

    When this came out, I HATED it.
    I hated its white trash esthetic and its rob zombieishisming.
    10 years removed, I…

    Four friends, who are writing a book about odd roadside attractions, come across a "Serial Killer Ride". It's here that they learn about local legend Dr. Satan. They're so enamored with the story they go out in search of his stomping grounds.

    The snow is coming down outside, which canceled all of my plans for the day. So what better way to take advantage of being kooked up in the house than to watch a few movies. I still have…

    I thought this was rather enjoyable, borrowing liberally both from the old 'weird family in a weird place' trope that probably started with The Old Dark House, made its way through Spider Baby, and then on to Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes, and from movies that explore all sorts of media to disorient and confuse (like Natural Born Killers). I enjoyed it way more than I thought I was going to, it felt fresh and exciting in some respects.
