House of 1000 Corpses

My sister loves horror movies. She can’t get enough of them, and “House of 1000 Corpses” is one of her favorite. She loved it so much that took the day off work to see the sequel (currently in theaters) “The Devil’s Rejects“. Anyway, I decided I shoudl see why she liked it so much and after watching it last night I think I know.

It’s intense. It’s not like your typical horror movie where you have some super-human bad guy that gets vanquished in the end. You have psycho killers who prey on people wandering through and mutilating them for their experiments. They will kill anyone who tries to interfere and it all has a more real feel than most horror movies. The story isn’t the greatest, it’s wrapped in a House of Wax wrapper of kids going to see the freak show and in the end finding out the exhibits are the previous visitors. Most of the movie is the torture and torment of the kids though and it’s certainly more than you get from your average horror flick. It had that I can’t look away from the car accident feel to it.

If horror movies aren’t doing it for you anymore and you want something to push some more of those boundaries, then this is the movie for you.

    i have to say, while it’s a little unrelenting (er, ok a LOT unrelenting) he has a vision and maintains it. i think he’s like the oliver stone of the horror genre. he rules!
