Summary: From the visionary mind of acclaimed musician Rob Zombie comes the follow-up to his smash hit "House of 1000 Corpses." Written and directed by Zombie, this film further explores the Dr. Satan Cult Murders by blending traditional horror elements with the Western genre to paint a shocking portrait of vigilante justice. (Lions Gates Films)
Remove all of the charm from House Of 1000 Corpses and replace it with an odd fixation on sexual degradation. At least Rob Zombie's past plan of "pretend to be Tarantino & rewrite the Texas Chainsaw Massacre screenplay" worked for the first 2/3rds of House Of 1000 Corpses. This movie never finds it's feet. All the new characters are horrible. All the old characters are simplified to the point of boredom. The dialog is forced. Plus poor Rob Zombie couldn't write a decent ending to save his life.
Gore abounds in this smug, derivative pile of eviscerated innards, but it fails on two critical accounts: First, it's an unfunny, un-campy ripoff of all that is holy to fans of 70s horror such as Texas Chainsaw Masscare and The Hills Have Eyes. Second, it suffers from "Natural Born Killers" syndrome; that is, Mr. Zombie is so inexplicably enamored with the killers that you end up detesting the filmmaker rather than giving a shit about any of the characters.
A disgusting movie. I would have turned it off had I not been in the theaters and I might have left left had I not been with people. There is truly not one reason I would want to ever see this movie again as it's only redeeming quality was the soundtrack and I could just listen to the songs without watching sadistic bullshit.
Often downright distressing, as no doubt was the intention of director... Zombie... yeah... but not much of a "horror" picture. The ending either made very little sense, or I wasn't interested enough to have picked up on what would've explained it.
Magnificent film throwing back to the old days of horror like Last House on the Left and Texas Chainsaw, the main difference here is it makes the villains so charismatic that you almost end up rooting for them, especially during the final sequence. All around extremely well done horror movie.
