House of 1,000 Corpses (2003)

I’ve been a huge Rob Zombie/White Zombie fan since I was a kid, and after I learned that Rob was making a horror movie I was very, very excited. After many delays, the movie finally came out, and to my disappointment, it wasn’t playing anywhere near me. So, I didn’t get the chance to see this movie on the big screen. However, I happily received the DVD for Christmas.

The movie is basically Texas Chainsaw Massacre with a few new twists. Sid Haig is [**]ing awesome as Captain Spaulding, as well as Bill Moseley (who played Chop-Top in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2) as the twisted Otis. Rob’s girlfriend, Sheri Moon, steals the show however.

The story is basically about a few teenagers on the road decide to stop at Captain Spaulding’s to check out his infamous Murder Ride. Spaulding tells them about the towns legend of Dr. Satan, and writes the kids a map to Dr. Satan’s grave. Your typical Texas Chainsaw Massacre-type movie where the kids stumble into the home of a bunch of psychos. I enjoyed the movie until the final few scenes, when the main character, Denise, encounters Dr. Satan. Watching this for the first time, I was pretty lost, but now I understand it all. The music and the final battle scene are pretty cheesy and pretty much ruin the movie for the most part.

However, as a whole, this movie is the [**]ing [**]. I really, really enjoyed it. Zombie’s directing style reminded me alot of Oliver Stone’s style in “Natural Born Killers”, using random images, and making it pretty cartoony. It’s great to see a brutal horror movie come out in an age where “I Know What You Did Last Summer” is in the list of teen’s favorite horror movies.

My favorite thing about the movie is that everybody [**]ing dies. Zombie makes it so you really dislike the characters, especially the one cop, and you end up routing for them to get slaughtered. My favorite scene in the movie is when Denise’s father finds the girls all tied up and mangled in the shed, and Slim Whitman’s “I Remember You” starts playing. In slow motion, Otis kills both the father and the obnoxious cop (that’s the best scene in the [**]ing movie, the stretched out execution scene).

I think it’s awesome that Zombie resurrected the horror greats Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Karen Black for this film, and put them back to work. “House of 2,000 Corpses” just can’t come quick enough, I can’t wait for this sequel. “House of 1,000 Corpses” is highly recommended to people who enjoy a little twisted carnage and humor!
