House of 1000 Corpses
Taking his cue from such 1970s horror classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and The Hills Have Eyes (1977), animated rocker Rob Zombie goes celluloid with the throwback shocker House of 1000 Corpses. Running low on gas as they travel the highways of America in search of the ultimate roadside attraction, a group of teens pull into Captain Spaulding's (Sid Haig) museum of oddities (which also offers fried chicken and gasoline) only to become obsessed with uncovering the mystery of a legendary local maniac known only as Dr. Satan.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Zombie wants his film to be gleefully demented, but he fails to grasp that loud, inbred evil people torturing stupid, grating benign people isn't disturbing as much as tedious."
‑ Dan Fienberg, L.A. Weekly
"House of 1000 Corpses isn't coherent, exactly, but what dripping-ghoul horror movie is these days?"
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses has nostalgia on its side but not much else."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"I can applaud House of 1000 Corpses on at least one level: The movie has absolutely no interest whatsoever in sanitized horror."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"A disaster area."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"Possibly the greatest waste of celluloid since Jerry Lewis was first allowed to stand before a camera."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"A cobwebbed, mummified horror entry that makes obvious, cartoonishly grotesque demands for attention."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"This in-your-face homage to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the most unrelentingly sadistic flick to come out of Hollywood in quite some time."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Le réalisateur cite abondamment, mais ne parvient jamais à donner un sens à ses élans qui finissent par s'éparpiller dans un fourre-tout incohérent et anormalement tapageur"
‑ Jean-François Vandeuren, Panorama
"Those who are tired of Hollywood's dead weight aesthetic might at least find some surprise offered here. It's not good, but it's alive on the screen."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"In this field of endeavour, any intense reaction is unsustainable, for the obvious reason that the guiding principle of repetition comes with an inevitable corollary and unavoidable side-effect -- sheer boredom."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Wit follows coherence out the window."
‑ Alex Pappademas, Village Voice
"Cheesy, vapid, contrived, and shallow..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Um filme tão estúpido e mal realizado que me despertou o desejo de agredir fisicamente o diretor-roteirista Rob Zombie, cujo sobrenome deve fazer referência ao seu intelecto."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It is disturbing, to say the least, and seems destined for 'cult classic' status."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
