    This is old enough that a quarter of its cast is now deceased. As a horror fanatic: this strikes some of the most unsettling tones of any horror entry in recent memory (lots to do with the aural experience), but it also has a bit too much of the scene-chewing.

    A good first effort by Zombie.
    You can tell he had some ideas.

    Wow. This movie really sucked. It's not like I was expecting compelling characters, a thought provoking narrative, or even anything particularly scary, but House of 1000 Corpses barely even seems to qualify as being a movie. This slow and tedious debut from heavy metal lead singer Rob Zombie should probably have been enough indication for Rob that he was better off in the recording studio than on the sound stage but that hasn't stopped him from making a slew of…

    It was great to get to see infamous Captain Spaulding, the clown, for the first time and really see what he really is like. It was well worth it. But the film itself has a lot of hits and misses. It's very inconsistent throughout and doesn't work well like that. I can't help but think this film took too much stuff from Texas Chainsaw Massacre which is already far superior to House of 1000 corpses.

    But there are plenty of very entertaining horror moments. The murder ride is fun! But overall, very inconsistent and mediocre though.

    2 stars - "Meh / Mediocre"

    This is Rob Zombie’s first feature as a director, and you can really see the talent he has for setting up an ultra-creepy atmosphere. The problem with this film is that it never feels real enough. Just a bit too weird to make the suspense ever a threat. And there are way too many colors that it becomes distracting in a bad way. The antagonists are really interesting characters, except that they act over-the-top silly… and when they don’t seem to be serious or intense, it keeps the film from reaching that edge-of-your-seat intensity.

    I saw part of this film but I skipped years ago, so I only got to see the first 45 minutes and the last fifteen and I didn't like it. Having now seen the whole thing, I still don't like it and hated Moon's performance in this thing. Moon seems like she wants to be a Harley Quinn with her laugh. Zombie has his own style for better or worse and this film establishes it.

    Score: 20/100

    THE BOTTOM LINE: Even when viewed in the context of “campy b-rate horror flick” House of 1000 Corpses is a pretty lame effort. The most unsettling scenes are actually the short, found-footage type edits that typically surface for only a few seconds at a time. Rob Zombie often goes too far overboard so that the "humorous" aspects just come off as dumb rather than feeling natural in ANY sort of…

    Look, if Mr. Zombie didn't follow this up with The Devils Rejects this film would only rate 1 star. 1/2 a star for serving as a semi prequel to the excellent Devils Rejects. 

    A strong opening 10 minutes devolve into almost 80 minutes of meaningless Tobe Hooper homage. I feel bad for anyone who saw this film in theaters where the option to look away from the screen was inhibited by the theater setting. 

    Hate to crap on a movie…

    An unpleasant experience akin to being raped, or, in other words, a stupid, unscary and repellent gore fest that begins very well but then tries too hard to be "rock 'n' roll" and full of style with an irritating large amount of references and awful cutaway scenes inserted everywhere.

    About two decades ago, Rob Zombie was a big name in metal music. In 2003, when House of 1,000 Corpses was released on the big screen, Zombie quickly became a household name with his controversial film debut.

    Terrifying, sick, and above all disturbing, this film is a wonderful demonstration in the art of the gory "cinema nasties" of the 70s, with the short television vignettes throughout the film helping the film give off a 70s sleaze vibe, which works really…
