    The Devil's Carnival: Alleluia!

    ★★★½

    I certainly appreciated this one on the second watch, just like every other Terrance Zdunich musical. For some reason I never realize what I am getting into and end up hating it on the first watch. Then I always end up loving them on the second watch.

    A perfect 70s style horror flick! Rob Zombie's best film to date in my opinion. Reminicient of Texas Chainsaw Massacre in style (not subject matter). Definitely one of my favorite movies. I honestly see no way to improve this masterpiece of horror film. Also, hands down one of the best special features ever (Tiny Fucked a Stump)!
