    Surprise, surprise. Rob Zombie's directorial debut stunned those who watched it in 2003 and now it has stunned me in 2015.

    This film is like an hour and a half music video that happens to be a nightmare. You get surreal images that go with the film but at the same time don't belong there. You get flashes of things that are macabre before the final reveal. Things like this make it seem as if Zombie is a director with…

    So, like, the whole thing is an homage? The movie's just one big joke about how much Rob Zombie loves horror movies? I mean, okay... I guess...

    There's actually some pretty good stuff in here, spaced throughout, but the whole thing is just waaay too referential and relies on "heh I know what that's from" for entertainment, and it really doesn't work. Sid Haig is great and honestly the writing's pretty funny, but the victims are just awful to watch.…

    Personally, I'd say this film is The Texas Chain Saw Massacre meets Tourist Trap, of course with added kitsch, dialogue that is somewhat memorable but in Rob Zombie's traditional style of adding f-bombs every other word, and overall bizarreness. Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine in the horror genre.

    The end result is what one would expect from a well-funded fan film, when what he's a fan of is the mean-spirited drive-in fillers of the early 1970s; over-long, and with the directoral sympathy too much on the side of the monstrous loonies. The sense of "This isn't over YET" struck me at about the half-hour mark.

    I know this is supposed to be kind of a new classic, but I couldn't get into it. I loved The Lords of Salem, it was so stylized and unusual and freaky and funny, but this one felt stagnant and the jokes fell flat. I stopped watched just over half way through. If the second half gets a lot better, I suppose I missed out.

    The film starts out with the standard double couple road trip and a stop at Captain Spaulding's Museum of Madmen and Murderers/Gas Station. Captain Spaulding is Sid Haig in clownface and watching his eye bulging performance was the highlight of the film for me. The travelling couple's go on the museum tour/ride with animatronic diorama's of such luminaries as Ed Gein and local favorite Dr. Satan. The unlucky couples never really get off the ride, as the rest of the…

    This is a mystery to me! Saw it once so long ago that it all comes across as new to me now. And this isn't a bad movie! It's certainly not great. Certainly not bad either. But I guess to sum it up in a sentence... or phrase. It's an acquired taste.

    For me the movie comes off as unsubstantial in terms of story. It's clearly based on Spider Baby, with HEAVY inspiration in bite size chunks taken from the…
