More Info:
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    If your expectations aren't too high, there's lots of cool shit on-screen.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    A cobwebbed, mummified horror entry that makes obvious, cartoonishly grotesque demands for attention.

    Variety Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    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.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Shock-rocker Rob Zombie's loving homage to flat-out nasty horror films of the 1970s will leave many post-"Scream" (1996) horror fans cold because of what it's not. It's not slick or glossy. It's not funny or self-referential.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Isn't coherent, exactly, but what dripping-ghoul horror movie is these days? The new rule is, It's not hip to make sense when you're raising hell.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Dave Kehr

    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.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    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.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    The endless gore and violence make the experience torturous -- and not just for the victims in the movie.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

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

    Premiere Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    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.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Alex Pappademas

    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.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    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.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    Kicks off as a cheap piece of retro schlock and quickly devolves into a putrid bloodbath with a thin narrative made utterly indecipherable by the first-time director's clueless approach to filmmaking.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    The film is a mess, going all over the graveyard but never finding the grave. It's the work of a fan with too much time (and money) on his hands, eagerly awaited but best forgotten.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Todd Levin

    Rips off so many splatter movie tricks at once that it becomes totally frustrating.
