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

  • 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

  • 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
