Product Description

Product Description

A group of teens, travelling the highways of America, go in search of the legendary local maniac known only as Dr. Satan. When a mysterious hitchhiker offers to give them a tour of Dr. Satan's stamping ground, a breakdown forces the group to spend the night in the company of a very bizarre family.


It's sick! It's twisted! It's House of 1,000 Corpses, and it's more fun than a wholesome bowl of "Agatha Crispies"! Dropped by two studios (Universal and MGM) and doomed to obscurity until Lions Gate Films gave it a limited theatrical release, Rob Zombie's gonzo horror flick is a blood-spattered throwback to the gore-fests of the 70s, lending new meaning to the term "box-office gross". Most critics misunderstood this unbridled exercise in graphic style and violence, but for devoted horror buffs it's a refreshing rebuttal to the comparatively "polite" frights of the post-Scream era. While paying homage to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Last House on the Left, Motel Hell and other gory classics, Zombie's ramshackle plot (two young couples are terrorized by an inbred family of homicidal maniacs) lacks a crucial sense of dread, but his pastiche of vivid colours, grainy fetish-films and photo-negative imagery is guaranteed to hold your attention. A bona-fide cult item, this House is definitely worth a visit... if you dare. --Jeff Shannon

If there’s one thing modern cinema is criticised for, it’s that it’s made by executives and corporations rather than by fans of the genre itself. However, that cannot be said for the delightfully-titled ‘House of 1000 Corpses.’ It’s made by the (equally delightfully-named) Rob Zombie, who, despite being better known at the time as a musician, is definitely a fan of the horror genre.

But, without even going into who made it, perhaps it’s the title that should give you all the information you need to know as to whether or not you’ll like this film. If you’re expecting anything deep and meaningful then you’re going to turn it off within minutes. What you have is a pretty standard ‘slasher’ flick (okay, so it probably bears more in common with ‘Texas Chainsaw’ types films than ‘Scream,’ but there are definitely ‘slasher’ elements thrown in there), but presented with a sense of art. Or, if you’re feeling a little harsher, you could replace the word ‘art’ with ‘bits-thrown-in-that-look-like-they’re-taken-right-out-of-an-MTV-music-video.’

Rob Zombie tries to do something different with the way the film is shot. It’s got a lot of cutaway films and stylishly-filmed segments which break up the narrative. Some may find those interesting and different, others may find that they distract from the narrative – it’s really a question of taste, but you can see his music video influence shining through.

But, you probably don’t watch a film called ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ for its artistic integrity – you want the gore. And it doesn’t disappoint on that one.

A typical gore fest that should be expected from a Rob Zombie flick so if you are of a nervous disposition, don't watch.

Heavily influenced by 70's cult The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Zombies film follows two couples on a tour of the small towns of good old US of A to find the freakiest, scariest amusements and museums for a self penned book which one of the fella's is writing. Happening upon a roadside amusement run by Captain Spalding (Sid Haig in a chilling comic performance), he gives an over view of america's most illustrious killers, including Dr Death (who no one has heard of). After sending them on there way to find Dr Deaths gallow tree they encounter Baby (Sheri Moon) the pretty unsuspecting blonde of the Firefly family, who are anything but normal. In true horror film fashion a flat tyre forces them to shelter at the Firefly homestead but with horrifying consequences for all involved.

Film is presented uncut, unusual for the amount of gore content. Story is also far from new but many original elements have been incorporated to make it a decent horror yarn.

Bluray contains a 5 min behind the scenes special (looks like it was ported from DVD) and theater trailer. Video and audio quality are excellent.

The premise for House of a Thousand Corpses could have been done by anyone that could hold a camera up. But thank god we got someone who is in love with the horror genre. And a decade ago who would have thought that would be White Zombie front man Rob Zombie who for a time ditched the stage for the camera lens.

The film borrows from some of the great grindhouse epics of the 70s, most notably from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre but it never feels lacking or boring, this movie is clearly its own. The visual flashbacks and ads will go over peoples heads who are not into 70s horror, it's satire baby and it is done extremely well. There is one scene in particular which I would be happy to put amongst some of the most awe inspiring scenes in movie history. The 20 second silence as the camera withdraws to a birds eye view of one of the family about to shoot a cop in the head, we wait and wait and wait and then BANG! What a scene. And when you see pieces of magic like this it's hard not to fall in love with what Zombie is trying to achieve.

Zombie loves film and that is clear to see. And we have a very interesting line up of characters. Karen Black, Sid Haig to name a few.

The level of gore isn't as extreme as you may read elsewhere. It is here and this film certainly isn't for kids, but for the first half of the film there is next to no violence. Like a vintage Tarantino with sharp dialogue the film rolls along so well. Watch out for the delicious doll Sheri Moon, who lights up every scene she is in. She would later go on to be Zombie's wife. Horror fans will be hard pressed not to like Rob Zombie's first venture into movieland.

A horror masterpiece by one of metals biggest icons. A film very much in the vien of a Texas Chainsaw Massacre(even mentioning the famous Ed Gein) but taken to a higher level. Based around a fictional tale about Dr satan, a medical surgeon who takes a fancy to experimenting on his patient in bizarre ways. This leads a group of youngsters to investigate the tale to cure their boredom on long drive. This leads to a highly entertaining gore fest, with great over the top characters, and some cameos from some of horrors greats such as Karen Black.(Rob Zombie does not appear in this movie, only directs!)
A film for horror fans who just expect to be entertained, it doesnt take its self seriously and has re educated us on how to make horror movies, taking us away from the 90's formula of horror!
Great movie, cant wait for house of 2000 corpses! Watch it!
