Rob Zombie's debut film shows a promising filmmaker. The movie is a throwback to grind house and exploitation films of the 70s and it works in that aspect. Also with the Firefly clan he creates a group of disturbingly charming characters all accompanied with fitting performances by Sid Haig, Sheri Moon and Bill Moseley. The same can't be said about the group of travelers he meet an untimely fate. None of the them are very interesting or compelling. They just…
Dr Satan, Dr Satan he screams as running out of the museum of weirdness and spooky shit. He wants to see this famous tree, he tells the clown, he needs to know more about the legend. Like bees to pollen the kids go to the tree. They find a gorgeous blonde looking for a ride home - beware the pretty ones.
Beware the pretty ones they will lead you to a house of Horrors. A house of fish people, bloody cheerleaders and perhaps even Dr Satan himself.

You see it's all true, the boogieman is real and you found him...
I probably got really into horror movies a couple years after House of 1000 Corpses came out. Being twelve in 2003, I was a bit young for this movie (and maybe still am), yet a few years later it was in this grey zone of not being a classic but not being new. Finally got around to watching it last night and.... wow.
Rob Zombie's directorial style…
Pesadillas de viajeros.

Un platillo bastante peculiar. Rob Zombie siempre me ha gustado por su música, mucho de ese estilo se ve reflejado de manera visual. La edición, la corrección de color, etc. Hacen que la película parezca un experimento videoclipero, más que una narrativa personal, pero este experimento ha dado un excelente resultado.
El estilo de Rob Zombie es notorio…
It's 2017. Why does the horror parts in this look like Youtube "ear-rape" videos. It's not scary. This movie tries so hard to be scary but it's not. It winds up being embarrassing. I've seen a couple Rob Zombie movies and I actually hate his direction. I mean the starting five or so minutes with Captain Spaulding is literally gold. He is such a fun character who is has the potential to be one of the greatest horror icons. However,…
Just a fun, stylish ride from beginning to end. With some genuine twisted themes, and a seeping dread that consumes you throughout the movie, it's a perfect exploitation film for those with a taste for the deranged.

This film isn't exactly conventionally good; but then again this isn't a conventional picture. After seeing and hating Rob Zombie's '31' for it's offensive, nihilistic and pubescent storytelling, I was dreading watching this film. And whilst I still think all my criticisms of that film apply here, they aren't to a degree where I'm forced to view the film through a sardonic lense making my viewing experience redundant.
This film is a whole lot of fun…
”FUCK YO MAMA!”
”FUCK YO SISTA!”
”FUCK YO GRANDMA!”
I’m telling you I enjoyed the hell out of this movie despite some of the horrible dialogue and acting
The practical effects and set designs are so bizarre
The guy from the office is hillarious
The introduction of the actual Dr Satan (insert Lil Terrio at Popeyes)
Sid Haig is lit
Good job Mr Zombie, you’ve done right
This is such a schizophrenic picture. Zombie's style is all over the place but he really did start his directorial career with a bang.
One of the better Texas Chain Saw knockoffs with some of the best visuals around. Zombie mixing formats from shot to shot, usually within the same scene is astounding.
Also throwback to seeing this opening weekend and proceeding to run out of the theater when it was over just screaming my head off. "Dr Satan!!! Wooooo!!!! Dr. Satan!!!"
Seen this one about 3 times and the last twenty or so minutes always just makes me say "What the fuck". Just completely crazy. Excellent October movie because of the vibe this movie gives off which is just filthy.
Only counted 996, Where is the rest?
