Rob Zombie Comes Up With A Real Something

by Lord Barnabus Boulez on 2/6/2004

Well, as was expected, Rob Zombie has made a formulaic and predictable horror flick. Do not get me wrong however, there are many redeeming qualities that make it definitely worth watching or maybe even buying if you're an Avid Fan. The makeup and sets are done well, the gore is pretty damn nice, the action scenes while hopeless and overdone do hold your attention and keep you wanting to see what happens. So overall, it is definitely worth watching and if you really like a good old-fashioned gore-horror flick... this is a good bet to beat the band... to a bloody mess. Hiccup. Read More

Editors Note
Note Rob Zombie is the heavy metal hero who has released such albums as SINISTER URGE and HELLBILLY DELUXE as a solo act, and ASTRO-CREEP 2000 with his band, White Zombie. Here, he takes on the world of horror movies in this very bloody, very entertaining tale. The old car-trouble scenario comes in handy, as a group of unsuspecting travelers must spend the night in a place of demented evil--in this case, it's the Museum of Monsters and Madmen. Zombie makes the movie work for the same reason his music career has been so successful: He knows he's going way over the top, and he's not afraid to go as far as he can. So, eager viewers should put their tongues in their cheeks and go along for the raunchy ride.^The always beguiling Karen Black, who starred in one of the all-time great horror classics, BURNT OFFERINGS, turns in another terrifically offbeat performance as Mother Firefly, the marvelous matriarch of a murderous family. Other fabulously gruesome characters include the crazy clown Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) and the oddball "lady killer" Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley); Marx Brothers fans should note that many of Zombie's characters are named after roles played by Groucho. One of the advertising lines for the movie calls it "positively the most horrifying film ever made!" Zombie does his best to try to live up to that demanding tag, upping the gore quotient with numerous inventive killings that involve lots of blood and innards.
Los Angeles Times "Rocker Rob Zombie's HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES is at once a work of demonic brilliance and of wretched excess that could serve as a timely, savagely comic metaphor for the darkest impulses of the American psyche..." 04/14/2003 p.C4
Total Film "...This is everything you'd expect from a Rob Zombie flick, a junk artefact peopled by colourful sickos..." 11/01/2003 p.102

Review First-time director Zombie leans heavily on those cliched images of sadistic torture, death, isolation and destruction so familiar to anyone who has seen a few MTV heavy metal videos. He also eschews the teen-horror-genre formula of leaving the graphic violence to the imagination. Among the panoply of sick images in House, we see characters cut by a straight razor twice, a body carved with the words "Treat Trick" and a sickeningly suspenseful 10-second shot of a man executed point-blank, taken from an eerie birds-eye view. The often misfiring humor ("Goddam motherf#@# got blood all over my best clown suit") and hackneyed kids-seek-refuge-in-wrong-place-and-die plot wear thin. But Zombie's thirst to stimulate our gag reflex provides a Jackass-esque "what will he show next?" momentum to House that should make horror fans feel right at home.
