House of 1000 Corpses

House of 1000 Corpses ★★½

The first 15 minutes are so boss. Damn I want me some of Captain Spaulding's fried chicken. Sid Haig as the Captain almost makes me not hate clowns and Captain Spaulding is one of my favorite characters in film. Also Walton Goggins is so Shane / Boyd in a cameo as a doomed deputy. That is what I liked from the film. RZ tries some John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper homage, but the film only works when the Captain is in the house. Can someone say The Devil's Rejects please?
