House of 1000 Corpses
Two young couples take a misguided tour onto the back roads of America in search of a local legend known as Dr. Satan. Lost and stranded, they are set upon by a bizarre family of psychotics. Murder, cannibalism and satanic rituals are just a few of the 1000+ horrors that await.

You would think something this gory would feel exciting, thrilling or scary, but no, not even a little.
Slight spoiler I guess:
The best part of the entire movie is the seeming 30 seconds at the end with the doc, only because he had a truly great character design. If a movie was spun off of the idea of the doc being the antagonist and the real madness of his "practice", so insane as to be almost supernatural, and done in a completely different style, you would have something good to watch. But as it is, he was almost thrown in there as an after thought despite being mentioned from the beginning.
Zombies come along way, and after hearing about his new film “3 From Hell” I wanted to watch this back to back with Devils Rejects and realized someone either stole my copy or drunkenly lent it out to someone. Point being, it’s worth buying and buying again even if you loose your first copy. Bill Moseley is just great. Buy the film, grab some drinks, sit back and enjoy the film. Cheers.

Heavily influenced by 70's cult The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Zombies film follows two couples on a tour of the small towns of good old US of A to find the freakiest, scariest amusements and museums for a self penned book which one of the fella's is writing. Happening upon a roadside amusement run by Captain Spalding (Sid Haig in a chilling comic performance), he gives an over view of america's most illustrious killers, including Dr Death (who no one has heard of). After sending them on there way to find Dr Deaths gallow tree they encounter Baby (Sheri Moon) the pretty unsuspecting blonde of the Firefly family, who are anything but normal. In true horror film fashion a flat tyre forces them to shelter at the Firefly homestead but with horrifying consequences for all involved.
Film is presented uncut, unusual for the amount of gore content. Story is also far from new but many original elements have been incorporated to make it a decent horror yarn.
Bluray contains a 5 min behind the scenes special (looks like it was ported from DVD) and theater trailer. Video and audio quality are excellent.
Devil's Rejects is a schizophrenic, curdled mix of Bonnie & Clyde and Naked Gun which does not work for me. The 'humour' and cop-chase aspects totally diffuse any suspenseful horror. I don't know what kind of film this is trying to be.
House of 1,000 Corpses is an accomplished work of classic horror. It looks good. The acting and characterisation is excellent. The journey, or 'ride'(!) through the story is an interesting one. Humour is subtle and amusing. The horror action is convincing and doesn't let-up. Personally, I feel the plot develops perfectly; this IS a horror gorefest -not The 39 Steps! The cinematography features short clips occasionally (arbitrarily?) interspersed between scenes which I really like; it is reminiscent of 70's techniques like split-screen etc. which is the era in which this type of film was borne.
I wish I'd watched it twice now (I returned the rental copy).
I DO recommend this if you like a traditional horror gorefest which makes you go >eek!< .
