Succesfully playing a zombie onstage doesn't take the place of a few basic courses in Film School.

Zombie works the camera well and his music talents allow for a good use of the hard rock score, but ultimately despite all the visual trickery there's a lack of atmosphere, tension and even shock.

Dazzling visuals, gob smacking editing, flamboyant sets and deliciously over the top characters...I fail to see what the attraction is with this film
| Original Score: 2/5

If an hour and a half of undecipherable plot and sickening -- but not exactly novel -- horror tickles your fancy, then House of 1000 Corpses should get your heart palpitating.
| Original Score: 2/5

Now really, folks -- does anybody really need to read a movie review to know what a movie called House of 1000 Corpses is like?

I was never scared by this B-movie or its Grade-Z dialogue. The film usually has such a cartoonish, pulpy feel that all the spills and chills seem fake and unsurprising.

Possibly the greatest waste of celluloid since Jerry Lewis was first allowed to stand before a camera.

Cheesy, vapid, contrived, and shallow...

It's like a Clive Barker gore-fest as interpreted by an idiot carnival showman, robbed of anything that would make it work.

Surely the rocker, an incredible admirer of horror films, realized his final product wasn't above the standards of the kind of straight-to-video shlock that even Elvira or Sybil Danning would be ashamed to present.

There's a sense of overkill-no pun intended-that stops being drive-in fun and becomes exhausting.

Um filme tão estúpido e mal realizado que me despertou o desejo de agredir fisicamente o diretor-roteirista Rob Zombie, cujo sobrenome deve fazer referência ao seu intelecto.

I'm not sure Zombie really wants to scare us at all. Turn our stomachs; maybe, scratch our heads, sure. But scares are not really on the Zombie menu.

Parts have been cannibalized from better shockers and, worse, the stitches holding them together are so obvious they glow in the dark.

A waste of nine bucks and 88 minutes of my life.

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
