House Of 1000 Corpses (2003)

Oy well my idea of a good time is definitely not watching a Rob Zombie flick. I quite looked forward to this at the time though and figured it would be really awesome and gory and creative but I was only right on the "gore" point. The idea is that some teens looking for information about legends of serial killers wind up being captured by some weirdos and tortured and murdered. Basically take any good slasher flick and then dilute it with annoying characters and unfunny jokes throw together in a blender and over exaggerate everything and presto this crappy movie is born. Really it's nice that Rob is a fan of so many horror films (and boy is it obvious by the things he copied and stapled back together), but I think he should leave the making to someone else. Seriously obnoxious and pointless, far from terrifying and well I suppose if nothing more there is likely 1000 corpses here but I'm not about to watch it again to find out for sure.
