From Rotten Tomatoes:

Whether building ridiculously scary worlds like those of The Devil’s Rejects, Lords of Salem, or House of 1000 Corpses; imaginatively reinventing a classic franchise like Halloween; or creating twisted metal anthems like “Living Dead Girl,” “Dragula,” and “Sick Bubblegum,” Rob Zombie is one intense fellow. The man must be plagued by nightmares of psychos, demons, and the undead in between all the stage-shows, silver screens, and musical trappings, because he never seems to sleep.

Currently, he’s hosting Rob Zombie‘s 13 Nights of Halloween on HDNET Movies, and the scheduled selections are disturbing — check out Kalifornia, True Romance, Sometimes They Come Back and Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, all of which air between now and its final night on Halloween. Is it any surprise that each of his Five Favorite Horror Films feature seductive creeps played by Bela Lugosi? Granted, it wasn’t easy for Zombie to settle on his all-time faves (you can see his favorite all-time films of any genre here), but he’s been on a 1930s horror kick of late and was eager to elaborate on some of the best ones of the era.

One adult is telling another adult, ‘I think that’s a little too much for you. We’re gonna have to tone it down.’
