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.

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.

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

The most competent Ed Wood film ever made.

like all the best horror films from the 1970s (when this one is explicitly set), House of 1000 Corpses plays like one hell of a bad trip, and will leave your psyche feeling traumatised, fragile and exposed, while still tickling your funny bone.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

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.

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

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.

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.

A dazzling, spooky visual masterpiece...One of the year's best.

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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses is a movie by a man without any sense of modulation.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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

Cheesy, vapid, contrived, and shallow...
July 3, 2007
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
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
