# 3.) House of 1,000 Corpses
In case you haven’t noticed yet there’s a theme here. I have a soft spot for Halloween movies. Looks like Rob Zombie does too. As a young teenager around 12, Rob Zombie’s album Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales Of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside The Spookshow International was my favorite music to listen to anytime, anywhere. So when he made a movie in 2003 I shit my proverbial pants.
It’s another spooky, Halloween movie that’s pretty much like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre if it got wrapped up in a sexy rainbow. Yeah, that’s a good way to describe it. Watching House of 1,000 Corpses is like a really fucked up live action cartoon.
It’s got a good balance of funny weird shit and gratuitous torture. Usually movies with a lot of torture don’t really do it for me, but when its mixed in with excellent dialogue from Bill Moseley, Sig Haig and a whole lot of creepy giggling from Rob Zombie’s super hot wife, I’m loving it. Not to mention the sets and costumes are fantastic. I would live in the Murder Ride no problem.
House of 1,000 Corpses is a great homage-filled horror movie made by a horror movie fan for horror movie fans. Can’t go wrong.
