House of 1000 Corpses Reviews

Georgia Straight

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.

I can applaud House of 1000 Corpses on at least one level: The movie has absolutely no interest whatsoever in sanitized horror.

F5 (Wichita, KS)

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.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

It is disturbing, to say the least, and seems destined for 'cult classic' status.

Redneck humour + heavy metal video mentality = the future of horror

Peterborough This Week

The gory bloodbaths are as gratuitous as ten Friday The 13ths combined on a Halloween night: if ever there was a film destined for Rocky Horror cultdom, this sanguinary delight is it.

Shadows on the Wall

Underneath the unhinged surfaces of this film is a tight little thriller that really grabs hold and never lets go.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Upholding an atmosphere of dementia, Zombie returns horror to its roots of abstraction over logic.

A worthy tribute to the 70s and 80s slasher and splatter flicks.

JoBlo's Movie Emporium

Just the right amount of creepy atmosphere, nervous laughter, cheap scares, fun rides and blood and guts to satisfy any major fan of the macabre.

Loud, fast, derivative, and hypnotic...if there are two things that [Rob Zombie] is all about, it's horror movies and the art of the spectacle...campy and often funny

Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses has nostalgia on its side but not much else.

Cheesy, vapid, contrived, and shallow...

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
