The Most Shocking Tale of Carnage Ever Eeen.
Two young couples take a misguided tour onto the back roads of America in search of a local legend known as Dr. Satan. Lost and stranded, they are set upon by a bizarre family of psychotics. Murder, cannibalism and satanic rituals are just a few of the 1000+ horrors that await.

"Demonic brilliance!  Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Unabashedly sleazy!  Lewis Beale, The New York Times
"One hell of a great horror movie!  Tobe Hooper, Director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist

Editor's 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.

Professional Reviews

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

Eye Weekly 5 of 10
House of 1000 Corpses was conceived by its writer-director, rock star/psychopath Rob Zombie, as a contemporary homage to such twisted '70s drive-in shockers like Last House on the Left and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But the effort has been misplaced: it's neither scary nor disturbing, and gross only in ways relating to its Cro-Magnon construction. This long-suppressed, much-hyped film is a serious disappointment...House of 1000 Corpses is meant to be a fun movie, a way for gore-hounds to get their rocks off in concert with their heavy-metal idol. The question, then: can such a cheerful embrace of brutal, unrepentant misogyny even possibly qualify as fun? Horror movies are scarcely politically correct, but there is something unnerving about this one, which seems so smugly convinced of its own buoyant spirits -- it's as colourful as a child's birthday party -- but eventually becomes depressing and distasteful in ways the filmmakers could not have intended. There was nothing smug about Halloween, which didn't pretend to be self-aware and was all the chillier for it. Zombie's attempted post-modernism has neither the intelligence nor the conviction to work... - Adam Nayman

Playboy 7 of 10
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. - Sam Jemielity
