'House of 1000 Corpses'
(Karen Black, Erin Daniels / R / 94 mins / Lion's Gate)
Overview: From musician and horror fan Rob Zombie comes this twisted tale. Set in rural Texas during the '70s, it follows two couples searching for a man — myth or legend? — called "Dr. Satan." As one might expect when searching for somebody with that nickname, a band of evil freaks disrupts the couples' journey and leads them into a bizarre world of murder and mayhem.
Verdict: 'House of 1000 Corpses' is a playful shout-out to the horror films of yesteryear, but there's little meat beneath the admiration. Everything here lacks inspiration and it ends up to be an hour and a half of undecipherable plot and sickening — but not exactly novel — horror! I could say more, but that would waste more of my time and yours! Nuff said!!
