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

A tour-de-farce of depressing inanity, that's unable to do anything more than offer a messy, incoherent pastiche of other, better movies.
April 25, 2003
Zombie wants his film to be gleefully demented, but he fails to grasp that loud, inbred evil people torturing stupid, grating benign people isn't disturbing as much as tedious.
April 22, 2003
But what does it all mean?
April 20, 2003
Zombie's attempted post-modernism has neither the intelligence nor the conviction to work: he may fancy himself a genuine devil, but he comes off here as a poseur of a cheap and low order.
April 20, 2003
Over the course of the film, many funny, gory and silly -- but not particularly horrifying -- events occur.
April 18, 2003
Possibly the greatest waste of celluloid since Jerry Lewis was first allowed to stand before a camera.
April 18, 2003
In this field of endeavour, any intense reaction is unsustainable, for the obvious reason that the guiding principle of repetition comes with an inevitable corollary and unavoidable side-effect -- sheer boredom.

House of 1000 Corpses isn't coherent, exactly, but what dripping-ghoul horror movie is these days?
April 15, 2003
A cobwebbed, mummified horror entry that makes obvious, cartoonishly grotesque demands for attention.
April 15, 2003
Wit follows coherence out the window.
April 14, 2003
Parts have been cannibalized from better shockers and, worse, the stitches holding them together are so obvious they glow in the dark.
April 14, 2003
The end results are almost strangely devoid of thrills, shocks or horror, other than the sight of not one but two former Oscar nominees (Black and Michael J. Pollard) reduced to such a pitiable career state.
April 14, 2003
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.
April 14, 2003
Mr. Zombie's shameless pilfering, derivative and uninspired writing, and ham-fisted direction result in a chaotic mess.
April 14, 2003
The endless gore and violence make the experience torturous -- and not just for the victims in the movie.
April 14, 2003
Neither scary, perversely funny nor suspenseful, this demented dung heap is not even inventively gory.
April 13, 2003
The finished product looks like it's been run through Leatherface's meat grinder.
