    Zombie's sense of fun gets buried under the growing pile of bodies, and eventually, we're left with little more than a frenzy of sadism. show more

    Peter Debruge Premiere

    Zombie's film plays more like an experimental pastiche than an outright homage to those classic road-trip-gone-wrong movies. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Gosh, what to say about House of 1000 Corpses? That it's about 999 too many, for starters. Then again, in a picture where the body count is the whole point and the only purpose, carping about the math rather misses the mark. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    Kicks off as a cheap piece of retro schlock and quickly devolves into a putrid bloodbath with a thin narrative made utterly indecipherable by the first-time director's clueless approach to filmmaking. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Shock-rocker Rob Zombie's loving homage to flat-out nasty horror films of the 1970s will leave many post-"Scream" (1996) horror fans cold because of what it's not. It's not slick or glossy. It's not funny or self-referential. show more

    Film Threat

    Rips off so many splatter movie tricks at once that it becomes totally frustrating. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    The film is a mess, going all over the graveyard but never finding the grave. It's the work of a fan with too much time (and money) on his hands, eagerly awaited but best forgotten. show more

    Isn't coherent, exactly, but what dripping-ghoul horror movie is these days? The new rule is, It's not hip to make sense when you're raising hell. show more

    If your expectations aren't too high, there's lots of cool shit on-screen. show more

    Scott Foundas Variety

    A cobwebbed, mummified horror entry that makes obvious, cartoonishly grotesque demands for attention. show more

    House of 1000 Corpses is a bloody movie and will have you pissing yourself. If you have a weak not watch house of 1000 corpses. The movies does have some cheesy stuff in it, but is worth a watch if your up for watching a good horror movie!
