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.

All Critics (5)

A seriously entertaining, original, visual mind warp.

After watching this film, the only emotion I'm left with is confusion.

[Zombie] ain't Tobe Hooper and this most definitely proves he ain't Ralph Bakshi.

Cinema Crazed

It has all the failings of today's least inspired cartoons.

...the anarchic animated freakout that Ralph Bakshi has been trying to make for the last 40 years.

Audience Reviews for The Haunted World of El Superbeasto

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.

For an animated straight to dvd, it's amazing. The comedy worked so well because it's so perverted and creepy. It goes where shows like Family Guy or Simpsons have never had the nerve to go. All the voices were great, I loved Paul Giamatti and Rosario Dawson as a bickering couple. I have to say that Sheri Moon Zombie was my favorite part, she was priceless.

A strange, crude, lude, violent, messy cartoon from writer/director Rob Zombie, who has based this work off the characters he created in a comic book. Anyone who has a fondness for both the grindhouse horror that Zombie is very much a fan of, as well as the cartoon style of Ren and Stimpy should be pleased by this film.
