There's no middle ground with this movie - you love it or hate it. When the movie begins, we are watching the beginning of "Dr. Wolfenstein's Creature Feature Show." It's a show that characters in the movie would be watching if they had their television tuned to that channel. Then Wolfenstein's show cuts to a commercial break, and we see the commercial for "The Museum of Monsters and Madmen." The museum's owner is a strange clown named Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig). After Spaulding's commercial ends, the movie cuts to the neon sign outside of Spaulding's museum/gas station. This is when the storyline for House of 1000 Corpses begins. Inside, Spaulding is chatting with a friend. The rather disgusting conversation involves a Dr. Zaius action figure and sodomy. Then two would-be robbers show up. After taunting one robber, Spaulding takes them out, then inhales the fumes from his recently fired revolver. Then he steps on the last guy with his huge clown shoe and finishes him off. Then the opening credits roll, and we are serenaded by the awesome Rob Zombie heavy metal song called "House of 1000 Corpses". And during the opening credits we get to see lots of film clips of all sorts of things, ranging from a sunset to a guy's mouth being prodded by a dentist. The sequence for the opening credits pleasantly reminds me of various White Zombie and Rob Zombie music videos.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars So you wanna be a psycho? July 5 2003
Format:DVD
First off I'm not going to waste your time by telling you about the entire movie. If you're here then you've probably seen it and if not you don't want me to ruin it for you. This movie is cut-and-dry madness and I love it. What else would you expect from the Master of Mayhem(Rob Zombie)? If you are in to "real" horror movies then this is a must have to compliment your collection, if you're looking for something like "Scream" or "I Know What You Did Last Summer" then move along and forget you ever heard of this movie. If you watched it you would probably have to be commited shortly after. This is not "Nightmare on Elm Street" or "Friday the 13th" either, it's more like watching an unedited documentary on Ed Gein, the Manson Family, or a band of cannibals. However, if you know what you are getting yourself into and can wrap your mind around this movie enough to realize that it could and probably has or is happening somewhere in this country in real life then you will find it hilariously horror-filled. Bravo Mr. Zombie, I only hope that a Director's Cut version will be released so that I can see what they made you cut to obtain that R-rating(which, by the way, is not due to alot of nudity like most horror movies). [PS-I also recommend Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation]

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing as hell! Dec 8 2009
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I'm generally not a horror movie guy although I grew up on all the classics in the 80's. I thought I just outgrew the genre. Then I saw Rob Zombie's House Of 1,000 Corpes.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Dr. Satan's up!! Sept. 7 2006
Format:DVD
Whether this movie is your favourite or the worst film you ever saw...one thing no one can disagree with is that House of 1000 Corpses is extremely riveting. I didn't take my eyes off the movie even once. Sometimes the filming was shaky and you weren't sure what you're focusing on but that just made it all the more disturbing. I loved this movie as i'm very much into gore and fear especially when the kids in this movie were asking for it in their determination to see Dr. Satan and solve the great dead woods mystery. A fine way to spend a rainy night in a town you're not familiar with and picking up crazy Baby posed as a helpless female hitchhiker who eventually treats them to their worst dreams possible realized. Is it safe to say they regretted crossing paths with this hot blonde and her maniacal laugh? I think so! You can't forget all the other odd ball characters that Rob Zombie introduces either in the Firefly household. Everyone has their quirk and their distinctive physical appearances but the one thing they all share in common is they have no scruples and they're all driven to murder for the fun of it. This movie is visually stimulating and it certainly caters to most people's fears and nightmares. A definite Creature Feature! Buy this movie and sleep tight boys and girls for your introduction to the Murder Ride!

This is not your run of the mill mainstream movie. If you're looking for a perfectly polished movie with repetative special effects, and predictable characters than don't see this... Read more

What started as both a welcome homage and original work from a man who is outspoken and confident on the topic of oldy-style horror films quickly degenerated into bordom. Read more
