House of 1000 Corpses (2003)

The classical Hillbilly-Horror Movie setting. Young teenagers are on a roadtrip to visit spooky places in America. When they meet the vulgar but kind of friendly Captain Spaulding at the gas station with an in-house ghost train, their journey takes a malicious twist…

Highlight: Soundtrack, actors, costumes

10 out of 10 stab wounds

 

The Devil’s Rejects (2009)

Sequel of “House of 1000 Corpses”. The Firefly-Family Story continues.

 Highlight: Soundtrack (especially Lynard Skynards “Freebird”, which ends the movie in an ambivalent way – you just can’t decide whether to sympathise with the Hillbilly-murderers or not)

9 out of 10 stab wounds

Halloween 1 (2007)

Remake of the 1978 Movie.

Rob Zombie brings back the serial killer Michael Myers. The film includes a kind of prequel and gives insights into the abstruse mind of the murderer. Not the best Rob Zombie move (see “House of 1000 Corpses”) but good to watch.

5 out of 10 stab wounds

To be continued…
