Bad Horror Movie

So as it was Halloween, we sat around and watched a bad horror film. The copious amounts of rain combined with the lack of sidewalk on our side of the street kept the neighborhood urchins from pestering us for handouts. So we got to eat the candy and watch House of 1,000 Corpses. I’ll give it 2 stars. Some visually interesting work, a thoroughly disjointed plot, and enough holes to drive a truck through. Some of the scenes are funny in a very macabre sort of way. I think it fails primarily because it doesn’t have a clear enough plot. Parts are just disjointed, with no real connection to the rest of the film. Parts struck us both as being different for the sake of being different. I think there wasn’t a clear enough vision of what the hell Rob Zombie was trying to accomplish. Without that, he didn’t get there. I also think his extensive music video experience worked against him. Anyhow, it’s a fun bad horror movie, in part because it’s only 88 minutes. But it does have a sequel!
