A hero luchidor called El Superbistro (or something?) has his eye on a stripper but before he is able to declare his amorous intentions to her, she is kidnapped by a gorilla with a screw loose, who's working on behalf of Dr Satan, Bistro's arch nemesis. So from there El Superbistro has to team up with his sister Lara Croft and rescue the girl and save the world... Easy peasy!
I'm no stranger to Rob Zombie and have really enjoyed some of his work (Devil's Rejects and that Bigfoot comic, in particular) and I've even been known, on occasion, to listen to his music whilst sticking together my Airfix Panzer battalion, with a cup of tea but after watching this, I'm still none the wiser as to whether I liked it or not!
Yeah its suitably offensive, packed full of sex, violence and bad language. The jokes are plenty and story is certainly nonstop but somewhere its lacking. I'd like to put its shortcomings down to a few of the irritating characters but unfortunately I suspect the films failings are maybe more deep rooted than that and I suspect that this was/is one of those films that worked better and was a lot funnier on paper?! That said, there's a few that seem to really rate this on here, so maybe, despite getting most of the in jokes, silly scripting and sight gags, I missed the element that saved me from finding it all a bit noisy and dull!
The animation serves its purpose and fans of The Tick and Ren and Stimpy should enjoy it at least... Ultimately though, this isn't as good as it should've been.. Meaning that in an alternate universe, out there somewhere, Rob Zombie made a feature length animation of Meng and Ecker instead! Which I'll bet is a hundred times better than this!!
I'd of liked a' making of' on the dvd but didn't get one. However for the price of the disc I'm hardly complaining.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This feature-length animated adventure veers from mildly incoherent to outrageously offensive in a blink. Lurking amid the slapstick, fart gags and explicit sexual content are some piercingly witty jokes and delicious observations on celebrity culture, hackneyed movie plots and over-used cliches.
If you are offended by nudity, sexuality, Hitler's head in a jar, zombie Nazis, robots with 'fully functioning' appendages and the like then you shouldn't even be considering this film.
Get over being shocked (there's nowt really *that* shocking about bodily functions after all...) and El Superbeasto is a romp. A silly, shrieky, roar with laughter romp. It suffers from the dialogue being delivered too fast so it's a little difficult to figure out what's going on at first -- the alternative intros on the extra features reveal that earlier versions had a more user-friendly beginning which the makers would have done well to hang on to. Some of the deleted scenes could have been left in, too, which would have made more sense of the plot. Cos there is a plot, be it everso thin and largely obscured by mammary glands.
A perfect movie to watch after ten pints. Not one for Sunday afternoon with the family.
8/10

Absolute, stunning visually with vibrant cartoon tones leering across the screen but the story dialogue and the scenes would appeal to the immature 13 year old in me back when I was that age. Fast forward a few years and this is flat screen, daddio

Cartoon sex, well OK if that's your bag. jokes about Hitler and Nazis, all OK but life has moved on, apart from those few stuck in glorifying WW2, the rest of us are more affected by American foreign policy than Adolf.

This aims to be risque, flouting all the rules which it would have done in 1969 but in the 21st century its just old tired cliches strung together to create a narrative. Like much else modern fayre from the USA it tacks into a hormonal rebellion to extract those extra dollars from the newly made affluent. So if you've spent a day flipping burgers for the overweight and fancy something that will take your mind off reality then drop this into the slot and become immersed in something even more innane.

It is full of bright dazzling colours of somewhere over the rainbow but when you wake up you will realise the supo beast is just a pair of "pants."

By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Oct. 2011

Rob Zombie's The Haunted World of El Superbeasto is ridiculous story of our titular burly Mexican-masked wrestler-come-actor chap (Tom Papa) and his super-sexy sister Susi-X (Sheri Moon Zombie, no really, that's a real name - it's the director's wife). It's a bit of a strange set-up, bullied at school (aren't they all?) our super-villain Dr. Satan (clue's in the name, voiced by Paul Giamatti) is trying to marry the sewer-orificed Velvet von Black (voiced by Rosario Dawson), if he succeeds then he will transform into the ultimate dark lord or something and take over the world, scuppering Beasto's career plans. Also, there are legions of Nazi-zombies after Suzi-X who stole the Fuhrer's head-in-a-jar.

It's all a bit nonsensical and suspended in hyperbole, but the songs and script are very, very intelligent, there are obscure references and digs at all sorts of things. There are multiple references to other films and pop-culture and the characters all fulfil some sort of stereotype that needs pulling down, whether it's Beasto's arrogance & vanity, Velvet's money-grabbing & promiscuity, Suzi's naïvety or just Dr Satan's straight-up perversion, it's all fair game.

The animation is fantastic, with some very strange subject material to really indulge the medium of animation, the girls are ridiculously sexy and at several points this is verging on animated-pornography ("Relax, the Japanese do it all the time") and there are numerous references to drugs, violence and sex, all that bad stuff - but that's what makes it fun. This is nonsensical, but if you used to love The Ren and Stimpy Show then you are sure to enjoy this - dim the lights, numb the grey matter and put this on and you are sure to laugh. Recommended!!
