House of 1000 Corpses 2: the Devils Rejects
oh yeah!
I'm a huge horror movie fan, and Rob Zombie is a fantastic writer/director for the genre. Alot of people didn't like his movie, but it's one of my favorites. Supposedly "The Devil's Rejects" is going to be a hell of alot darker "it will make the first movie look like Finding Nemo".
I also heard rumors that the Firefly family meets up with another psycho killer family...can anyone say "showdown"?
anyho...am I the only one really excited about this?

House of 1000 Corpses was unwatchable. And I haven't met anyone (aside from "Harry" just now) who said otherwise. I'm not sure how much money House of 1000 Corpses made in theater and VHS/DVD sales, but I'm certain the sequel will do much, much worse.

In fairness, there are a number of people on this board who liked the movie (Brother Ragnorak should be puttin in an appearance any minute)

In honesty, I have not seen the movie as a) I'm not much of a horror/gore fan and b) Rod Zombie's schtick bores me

I liked the movie for what it was meant to be and I'm looking forward to the second one. Not holding my breath waiting for it but when it comes out, I'll see it.

Maybe Rob Zombie has figured out how to tell a story on the screen by now....if not, it'll suck like the first one.  There were a few good parts but I wound up just reading a book during the last half hour or so because I no longer cared what was going on.

it's meant to be a tribute to horror movies that Zombie likes, being that he is a huge horror film guru...he accomplished what he wanted to perfectly, in it's own sense it is a perfect peice of art...many people don't get that...but many people don't get van gogh.
I really enjoy the genre, so I get all of the "inside jokes" so to speak.

As I originally wrote after watching the first movie; The term "trainwreck of a movie" never seemed so appropriate as it did for this movie...

I'm not much into slashers, so probably I wasn't getting all the "obvious" homages the film had, but I found it quite imaginative and well directed. I'll probably watch number two when it hits the theatres.

Neville, if you enjoyed it, you should go back and watch some of the movies he based it on, you would enjoy them too.  House of 1000 corpses got me really into horror flicks, I had seen a few before, but after I read about what zombie liked, I started watching those movies.
Obviously The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and more than the first one, you would notice the TCM2 is alot like house of 1000 corpses.  Also check out Wes Craven's "The Last House on the Left" which is really the first of the slasher sex crime movies...it's not incredibly scary, but you can see where zombie pulled from it.
there is supposed to be alot of humor in these movies...they should give you a few cheap scares, the ones you're almost ashamed of, but you should also laugh at how ridiculous the situations are (i.e. "what the hell is she doing, any sensible person would run the other direction")
I guess you maybe just have to be a little odd to appriciate and enjoy slasher flicks.

Oh, I'm not completely ignorant about slashers. Seen the first TCM and some other Tobe Hooper, but it is just that many things frm the movie looked a bit tongue-in-cheek, you know, as if Zombie was saying "Know were I took this from?", and often I couldn't imagine the source. I may watch TCM II (It's been on my list for years), but Las house on the left is completely out of the question. I tried to watch it years ago and had to stop. F*cking disgusting load of crap if you ask me. Early Wes Craven uses to get me on my nerves, and not precisely the way it should.

I've never seen Last House on the Left. I was always turned off by hearing people say I'd never get to see the full, uncut version (because it no longer exists). Is that true? And why exactly do you say its a "disgusting load of crap"?

it is.

I watched it, and it's one of those movies that you almost feel ashamed if you don't say you despised it... but I didn't, I tried to appriciate it for what it's worth (which isn't much, even Craven will tell you that)
it's really bad.
you just have to keep telling youself
it's only a movie
it's only a movie
it's only a movie
