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!

Village Voice
Straining to put his own stamp on this stale-from-the-crypt material, Zombie falls back on the twitchy visual grammar of his videos, splicing in dream sequences and grainy porno-snippets apparently purchased at Bob Crane's estate sale. The violence eventually becomes more inhuman than human. Full Review

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. Full Review
Dave Kehr
The New York Times
As much as film buffs might enjoy recognizing references to "Motel Hell" and other drive-in classics, Mr. Zombie's encyclopedic approach to the genre results in a crowded, frenzied film in which no single idea is developed to a satisfying payoff. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
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. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion A.V. Club
The setup almost needs footnotes, which makes it all the more puzzling that Zombie's obvious love for horror's past would translate into such a joyless, grisly rehashing. Full Review
