Harry:

I agree with you.  This movie reminded me a LOT of the classic drive-in movies from the 1970s.  I loved it and am a proud owner of the DVD.  I can't figure out why so many horror movie fans hated it.  I felt like I was back at the drive-in again . . .

I can't figure out why so many horror movie fans hated it

Not being a horror fan or having seen the movie, I'll nevertheless take a guess :)

Filling a movie with references to other, prior movies in the genre only can really pulled off with any respect if you first show you got the skills to create something yourself.  There is a fine line between "homage" and "ripoff" and the line can be drawn at the point where you don't *need* to put it in. Do you put something in that otherwise you wouldn't have to simply as an honor to prior artists when you could easily do something else?  Or do you out something simply because you're not skilled enough to come  up with something on your own?

Being a jazz fan doesn't mean you can play jazz.  Being a musician and releasing your first 'jazz cd' that's filled with riffs from prior artists ins't really an homage..first prove you have the skill and the chops to actually play something original, then when you have some credibility as an artist, you can go and release an 'homage' because people know it's really an homage of respect..a nod to the masters before you, and not just a rip off from your own loack of creativity.   There's are *reason* that bar bands playing cover tunes don't make as much or get as much muscial respect as the musicians who first recorded the song.

Now, I don't know how much of Zombie's movie actually shows his own skill and how much is just cliches and 'homages' to other works, but when a first time effort comes out from a 'fan' that's filled with 'homages', I'm not initially that impressed

I mean, Of Unknown Origin was *not* an homage to Alien and The Thing :) It was just a painfully bad an uncreative movie :)

I think Zombie had enough originality in it, and it's not like he just ripped off from one movie, it seemed more like homages to many movies.  I do see what you're saying though freep, and I agree with you.  If nothing else, zombie showed his originality and creative strength in the creation of some of his characters, Captain Spaulding and Otis especially.

If you have ever enjoyed any White Zombie videos merely for theitr colorful representations of horror and cool looking halloween s**t, you would know that this movie is overflowing with Rob Zombie originality and artistic style.

So what if images, story elements, and character profiles are vaguely based on a genre of movie or horror element we have seen before. I think he satisfied himself and that was the most important element in any artistic endeavor.

Actually, I think I heard the Sheriff is going to hire two bounty hunters call "The Unholy Two" to hunt down the Firefly Clan. Hopefully these guys are badasses.

the devils rejects is going to be the greatest movie i probably will ever see aside from house of 1000 corpses but could it be that another zombie film is already in the works?  its a possibility! i like house of 1000 corpses cause of its plot and because of all the gore   its awesome effects and once again i cant wait to see the devils rejects.... are me and harry the only ones that are excited about this?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
