Choppy editing, nauseating camerawork and a script dumb enough to lower its audience's IQ, House of 1000 Corpses is a truly terrible movie that serves as an excellent staple for the talent (or lack thereof) of Rob Zombie.

Solid entertaining film. I didn't think it was great but decent. I would give this a solid 6/10.

Cheesy? Yes. Lazy use of gore just for shock value? Yes. Still entertaining, funny at times, and re-watchable? Yup.

This movie doesn't make you feel "scared" it make's you so mad that you actually wanna get up and torment somebody for the rest of their life. The characters are your stereotypical redneck trash that kills for some weird ritual. Don't waste your time or money on this garbage.

Very strange and confusing but enjoyable at some parts.

One-of-a-kind musician Rob Zombie makes his love for horror even more obvious with this, his directorial/screenwriting debut. It's not a particularly original film but I don't think it was intended to be. Also, Zombie seldom goes for instant scares, opting instead for atmosphere, suspense and shock. The score, co-written of course by him, was very good, as was the editing and the overall direction. It plays like an homage to his favourite horror films but via his own visual and sonic aesthetics.

Damn good movie if you like old school horror!

Deeply unnerving and brutally sadistic, House of 1,000 Corpses is a terrifying, bizarre and visionary nightmare of an experience oozing with gore and featuring scary performances from Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie -- as well as a chilling debut for writer-director Rob Zombie's promising career in horror.

Sloopy, incoherent film with a flawed story narrative and hallow characters that you could care less about. This film is 90 minutes or so of unpleasant gore porn. You wind up questioning why you even bothered watching this by the end of the film.

Not a horrible horror movie. If I never see it again, that would be ok.

Extreme horror films hadn't hit it big until a couple years later in 2005 when Eli Roth's "Hostel" came out and I think if this film had been released around that time it might have been a bigger success. Instead, this film took some years to find it's cult following. The story, such as it is, follows a group of young people, two of which are played by Chris Hardwick and Rainn Wilson, ironically visiting the roadside attraction "The Museum of Monsters & Madmen" run by the wonderfully creep Sid Haig as the clown-faced Captain Spaulding. From there, the film becomes something of a greatest hits of 70s grindhouse horror films. Writer/director Rob Zombie has made a grizzly love letter to films ranging from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" to "Last House on the Left" to "The Hills Have Eyes" to "Spider Baby" to really too many to mention. Zombie has some nice visual stylistics (grainy black & white documentary-like footage, an incredibly long crane shot, or delightfully creepy over-the-top production design) mixed among others that don't quiet work (mainly the ugly photo negative effects). Also in the film's positive column is a to-die-for cast of character actors, including Karen Black, Bill Moseley, Irwin Keyes, Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Dennis Fimple, and Michael J. Pollard. The overall effect of all this is a disconnected mishmash of partially developed ideas that felt as if Zombie was trying to cram in every single horror movie idea he'd ever had into one film. If there is a unifying story, it's the teens trying to survive their captivity by the maniacal Firefly family, which then follows the classic "last girl" horror trope. However there are tons of dangling story threads involving the legend of Doctor Satan, Tom Towels and Walton Goggins investigating the missing teens, or just odd one off musical numbers and other throwaways scenes. Still, despite the film being kind of a mess, it's also kind of a glorious mess for fans of the type of film Zombie is celebrating.

Directorial debut from shock rocker Rob Zombie, house of 1000 corpses is a promising, cult horror film. About a group of cross country bag packers documenting roadside attractions whom get kidnapped by a family of psychopathic killers. An out and out crazy, violent gore fest, which Zombie's experimental filming style really captured the insanity. A great and different horror.

'House' is ambitious, 'House' is trademark Zombie, 'House' is a little bit up itself. The cinematic equivalent of Rob Zombie master-bating to Fulci references for 90 minutes. Do with that information what you will, the last twenty minutes are a scream!

Zombie defiantly can make a horror film that is funny but at times very disturbing to watch. THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART....

A super weird rip-off movie. This movie is almost not original. It takes a lot of things from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacare" and all sorts of other movies. It also has a weird plot. A random family in the middle of no were have an underground labyrinth were they hide a serial killer doctor, and give him patients? Very far out for reality. On the plus side of this movie is the amazing acting and epic character of captain Spaulding. This guy made the movie, and Sid Hair did an amazing job as the role. The gas station with the murder ride was super cool! One other thing I liked was the great set design. So overall this movie wasn't the best. Although it does have its great little charm to it.
