Now this review may be a little biased, you see when I was about 6 yrs old, my brother thought it would be a novel thing to bring a minor to an R rated movie, and back then children could be accompanied by an adult. The Exorcist was my first ever horror movie and I remember completely believing, and having nightmares for months. It took me several long nightmarish years before I realized what that movie actually did for me. The experience of that movie taught me about life and how to live, ever since then the state of complete immersion into a story that could in my mind actually be true was the way to flourish a sense of living. All I had to do to feel alive was to make fresh in my mind the chance of a horrifying death. Now about this time you may or may not agree with me but over the years I became a horror movie junky, I loved them, I lived them, and even created them, I seemed to never get enough. But there was something missing. They all were kind of lame and actually sucked, until now! Introducing the new master of this genre "Rob Zombie" writer and producer of this movie and more. If you are not a fan of the horror genre then you will never understand the masterful artistic imagination of this man, House of a 1000 corpses was not that different from the norm but what genius it was to incorporate the music, art, graphic detail, and all the while a story that could happen to you! Ah, Yes this man could be a genius, he could also be mad. The longtime front man for metal superstars White Zombie. Rob Zombie was born Robert Cummings on January 12, 1966, in Haverhill, MA, forming the group soon after moving to New York City circa 1985. He subsequently worked as a bike messenger, porn magazine art director, and production assistant for the classic children's TV series Pee-Wee's Playhouse .In mid 1998 Zombie made his solo debut with the album Hellbilly Deluxe, when it sold more copies in its first week of release than any record before it, he disbanded the group to forge ahead as a full-time solo act. He began to work on a feature film in April of 2000, funded by Universal Studios after he designed a horror display for their amusement parks. The film, entitled House of 1000 Corpses, was produced and edited, but the studio backed out due to its own corporate standards. The film was a cult hit, prompting Zombie to begin work on his next piece of celluloid, 2005's Devil's Rejects. Yes he may be a madman but through his vision of death I can now live.
