And what would this movie be without a group of youngsters who are little more than lambs being led to the slaughter? I imagine it's hard for anyone to empathize with these four youngsters. Bill (Rainn Wilson) is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING. Jerry (Chris Hardwick) may be funny at times, but he's also absurdly childish. Bill's girlfriend Mary (Jennifer Jostyn) and Jerry's girlfriend Denise (Erin Daniels) certainly aren't friendly people.Read more ›
Anchored by Zombie's unique visual stylings and eclectic musical tastes, this House is rocking, don't bother knocking. An ill-fated foursome of young men and ladies are travelling cross country. They stop for gas and chicken at Captain Spaulding's (as played by the near-legendary Sid Haig). Spaulding is probably the best character ever written by Rob Zombie, both hilariously funny and mildly disturbing at the same time. Well, he's a creepy clown. If you have a clown phobia, Spaulding's the creepiest I've ever seen, but I can't help but laugh every time he opens his sizable mouth.
Spaulding tips the kids (Rainn Wilson is the only "name" here) off to the legend of Dr. Satan, and the kids go off hunting for the tree where he was hung. At night. In the rain. It is then that they meet the beautiful and disturbed Baby (Sherri Moon Zombie) and get a flat tire. Things only go downhill for the young ones from there....
Special mention must go to out to Bill Mosely (Otis Firefly) who is absolutely terrifying as the most disturbed member of the Firefly family. Yet, he only gets more interesting as a character in the sequel, The Devil's Rejects...but that is another DVD.
Some horror purists can't get into Zombie's style. Indeed, he has a unique vision as any fan of his will know. Just go see him in concert sometime. Zombie also likes to populate his films with 70's southern stereotypes. However, that's just the genre that Zombie (and I) grew up with, and I believe his films pay homage to that very well.Read more ›
It quickly deteriorates into a "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" knock-off. The story is the same. A group of teenagers meets a family of weirdos. Nothing new here.
Furthermore I was promised a gore feast and that wasn't delivered. Creepy lighting and shakey camera-work rob you of the illusion of bloody carnage.
Don't get me wrong, I liked the movie but had much higher expectations.
The best part of this DVD are the extras. I watched the whole movie again with commentary by Rob Zombie. It was very cool. I've never been a big Rob Zombie fan. I always thought he needed a shower and shave but after listening to his commentary I see things differently. I now see him as being a very intelligent person in need of a shower and shave.
I'd be surprised to see another film by Rob Zombie.
His commentary seems to indicate it was a real beating getting this film finished.
Some of the other extras are too strange to describe.
You just have to see it for yourself.
