Movie Info

Paul Giamatti, Brian Posehn, Rosario Dawson, Danny Trejo, Daniel Roebuck, Tom Kenny, Tom Papa, and, of course, Sheri Moon Zombie all lend their voices to director Rob Zombie's animated tale of a washed-up luchador who makes it his mission to battle the forces of the supernatural. As the heroic El Superbeasto (voice of Papa) advances ever closer to his ultimate confrontation with the diabolical Dr. Satan (Giamatti), each adventure becomes more surreal and terrifying than the last.

    Easily a cult favourite. It's got singing, dancing, horror, comedy, nudity and swearing; everything you need to create a movie that entertains. Shouldn't have been a direct to video film, it's really great.

    I don't know what possessed me to watch this film, but Rosario Dawson is a gem! I knew this movie was gonna be ten kinds of crazy and I wasn't left disappointed. This is clearly a guy's movie: overt sex, profanity, violence, etc. Apparently, El Superbeasto is this luchador baby that was adopted by a family in the barrio and he grows up to be a "super hero" (and by super hero, I mean a dog in an endless search for cat). He finally sets his sights on an epic stripper named Velvet Von Black (played by Rosario Dawson) and goes on a quest to save her from a villain named Dr. Satan who needs to marry her in order to become super powerful and rule the world. LOTS of dirty humor, sexual content, violence, profanity and hilarity ensue. Hands down, Rosario Dawn's Velvet von Black character was the best part about this film. I didn't know she was so funny!! I looked forward to every scene with her because she always had something outlandish to say. I quote her now! If you're into crass toilet humor and not-at-all subtle sexual content, go for it. But you've been waaaaaarned!

    A movie animated by John Kricfalusi... wait its not the creator of Ren and Stimpy who animated this? Oh its a cheap rip off of his and Tex Avery's animation style with gags that are old hack. I'm glad I was able to stream it for free.

    Came across this by accident and admit I watched it through as it was fairly amusing ultratrashy entertainment. R-rated cartoonery has gone the way of Ralph Bakshi and Heavy Metal, bygone-era animations that took a grittier approach whereas El Superbeasto retains the light tone of Saturday morning. Somehow this mashup of perverted silliness sort of works, in no small part because of the great voice contributions including serious acting talent like Paul Giamatti. Some funny lines, visuals, and good-natured smuttiness to be found if that's your cup o' hooch. Far better than any of Zombie's live-action exercises in ugliness.
