House of 1000 Corpses [2003]

Plot Summary

Taking his cue from such 1970s horror classics as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and The Hills Have Eyes (1977), animated rocker Rob Zombie goes celluloid with the throwback shocker House of 1000 Corpses. Running low on gas as they travel the highways of America in search of the ultimate roadside attraction, a group of teens pull into Captain Spaulding’s (Sid Haig) museum of oddities (which also offers fried chicken and gasoline) only to become obsessed with uncovering the mystery of a legendary local maniac known only as Dr. Satan. When an attractive and mysterious hitchhiker subsequently offers to give the thrill seekers a personal tour of Dr. Satan’s old stabbing grounds, a breakdown forces them to take refuge with a group of menacing oddballs as a fearsome storm rages outside. As the evening progresses and the backwoods hosts’ Halloween festivities become ever more threatening, the teens soon realize that the legend of Dr. Satan may hold a bit more contemporary weight than any of them had previously thought. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I am curious as to what specific mutations Earl “The Professor” Firefly has. I mean it looks like he has no skin! Like his body is just one open wound. And that respirator thing, it sounds like there was something… wet…. in there. So is he a Dr. Satan experiment? Did he always look like that? I’m just having a hard time picturing Mama Firefly being married to that and then having sex with Earl at least twice because Rufus and Tiny are his sons (according to the wikia page). But minus Tiny’s gigantism and burns, he would look normal right? And Rufus looks normal. So did the mutations happen after the birth of his children?? I know they’re a fucked up family, but is Mama Firefly fucked up enough to get in bed with something that looks like that????

    Rob zombie is a genius with his music and movies. Music is amazing and movies are creepy, just the type to make you watch it over and over again! I am a real big fan of rob zombie!

    Hello sorry but we do not have a multi lingual staff – staff only speak english as do the majority of users – wish we could offer different but we can’t. The one thing I do have on the to do list is a translation service so users can at least read the site in their spoken language. Emma (RZs web manager)

    Thanks for answer me Emma, say hello to Rob Zombie for me, I would like to do something for the latinoamerican fans and for Rob Zombie, If you want, I could help you to translate somethings, I can’t translate everything, but I can do it with the most important information on the web site.

    It was the first film of this kind than I saw and I liked so much, but Why do you misprize the latinoamerican people?, all your site is in english, would be nice if were a little part where the latin fans could talk or read about you and your movies in spanish. As you see, I’m so bad at English and this is the only language here.
    And if yout want to know the translation at the spanish of this movie, sucks!!!.

    I forgot say something, I’m not your fan, but I really love the personality of the killers characters of this movie (really, really love), I like very much the casting and I like the soundtrack.

    And I really wanna see if you say somethig about that, would be nice.

    Thanks for reading me.
