Self indulgent hack Zombie begins his dubious film career with this odious rip-off of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. A cinematic dung heap.
it was a good movie,the family was freaky,and the movie disturbed me,but still it was good,and very,very scary! and gross,and bloody!
this movie is super awesome...i cant even count on my 2 hands how many times i`ve watched it in the past year. disturbing, but great!
Hilarious, I like the wacky physcho family movies. Reminded me of the Texas Chainsaw Clan. Had me jump back from the screen a couple of times. Toydajo
bleh, it was boring-_-`
In a word, gruesome. I left feeling really disturbed. Get it out on video, when it`s cheap.
This movie has got be one of the greatest horror films of all time! This coming from a person who has a mind more messed up than Rob Zombie, and knows what it takes to make an extremely gruesome & horrifying horror film! Zombie did an amazing job, as well as some of the best acting I`ve seen, and the camera work was just...FANTASTIC! Rob Zombie not only happens to be favourite singer(Since 1998), but is now definately one of my favourite directors! this movie get`s a HUGE 10 on 10 from me!
I loved it. It put images in my head for almost two weeks.
Some of the most disturbing images I`ve ever seen. An hour after watching it I still feel the way I do after waking up from a terrible nightmare.
The best movie since Texas Chainsaw Massacre!!!!
This movie is absolute filth... I LOVE IT!!!
It was alright but Rob needed more scary things to happen and more people to get killed
the best horror movie in years!! the best since texas chainsaw massarce!! Johnston
I really enjoyed it. I expected a bit more gore from Rob Zombie. It was really hyped up. I am sure his next will be great.
I thought it was the best. I would love to be a freak in one of his movies. Kudos to Rob Zombie!!
all around good movie. Very entertaining!!!
was alittle like an old fashioned horror movie, kinda like an ELVIRA type of show. it had an interesting story line Rob is awsome
It seemed like the typical horror film until the pit. THe scene with CHris being worked on by "The Doctor" is one I won`t soon shake. Had it`s moments of humor, but overall the twisted, gruesome violence is some of the best put to film. Great film, if you are in to the whole horror thing. If not, beware.
Considering it was Rob Zombie`s movie debut, his eye for cinematography is quite well developed. His use of the classic devices found in Texas Chainsaw Massacre and George A. Romaro`s Night of the Living Dead worked well to bring this spatter feature together. The somewhat glib formulaic plot did not detract from the overall movie as a whole. Sid Haig’s character’s re-emergence at the end was reminiscent of Chainsaw’s Drayton Sawyer without being an overt imitation. All in all, it was a wonderful modern twist on the classic formula slasher film.
I can`t see why people knock this movie?! Sure it`s cheesy because it`s a take off of 70`s style cheesy horror flicks, but by the same token it`s very disturbing. The great camera work and real 70`s feel is certainly there. If yor a fan of the genre you`ll love this film.
Boring horror movie. It was neither scary nor funny. They let Rob Zombie doe this one just because he has some fame. He should stick to singing. That`s what he does best.
I heard there was a longer even more gross version which I would like to see will that be released?
This movie was the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. It has no plot and it was glorifying evil and death and gore. A real nightmare and hard to watch some scenes.
Amazing movie, hands down.
This Movie Honostly is VERY good. If you keep a kind of open mind about the Genre its an amazing movie. I dont really like Rob Zombies music or rock at that but he did amazingly makin this movie. I know that he was inspired by older horror movies (you can tell by the movie) but this movie was REALLY good! defenetly 10 outa 10 stars
This film was expected to be one of the most gruesome and gory film of the year. Well, not much gore, but extremely gruesome and terrifyingly disturbing. Director Rob Zombie achieves what he sets out to do and does it very well. ***1/2 of *****
The Most BRILLIANT Horror Film since "The Exorcist"! This Film is not only Scary but it`s HILARIOUS,with Dazzling Visual Effects,and great acting! Rob Zombie`s Masterpiece!
The Scariest Film Since ``The Exorcist``! it`s a Spectacular Horror Film,with Dazzling Visual Effects and Great Acting! A Rob Zombie Masterpiece!!!!!
I saw it and it was just another sick, twisted, stupid horror movie everyone wants to waits to see,floks to see it, and leaves the theater disappointed. Personally, the only task for the audience was not to block out the scaryness, but to stay awake through the horrible scenes
If I could lay my nightmares on film, this would be it...
loved it!!! brilliant work!!!
Excellent, hilarious and a true trubute to old style 50`s horror movies.
Craziest mofo stuff you`ve ever seen!!! It was awesome!
Not bad! Expectation was down because of criticism. The film was straight from the 70`s and was successful in what it was trying to do. quite frightening as well.
Cheesy video/sound effects, nice costumes and gore effects, stupid story line and music. Bad movie.
Great Movie. There is no serious plot for obvious reasons, it`s a slasher/shocker. If you went to see character development and great acting, you`re have no clue. This movie is meant for luvers of the genre. 8/10
hated it, waste of money, its not scary, just sick and stupid, I`m very disapointed after waiting years to see this, don`t waste your money!
Rob Zombie, Oscar`s calling your name!
Rip off Texas Chainsaw Massacre much? Oh wait, this one was worse... Skip it, download it. Let someone else pay for you to see it.
not so scary, more like grusome and crazy. i cant wait for the dvd to come out, 45 minutes of cut footage. i had to see it, Rob Zombie is the man. some parts were so well directed, like the split screens and the 30 seconds of silence at one part. great directing for a starter. i must admit the story line was pretty make shift.
Excellent movie. Worth seeing if you like 70`s horror and are tired of the scream and i know what you did last summer type of horror movies. Back to the classic slasher horror film.
Definately a new genre of horror. Less suspense, and more real sick, twisted, grotesque, demented, absurd way over the line horror (just what I like!) Either you like it, or you don`t. And I loved it!
umm, this movie is differnt. I would not say bad, because it is so bad, I like to think it is on purpose. Worth seeing if you like 70`s horror flicks. Very odd.
This movie truly lacks a story line, and leaves the audience gasping for breath as they try desperately to stay awake. Unfortunately this movie doesn’t belong in any category, other then it’s own. It’s a sick, twisted movie that depicts a rather unfortunate tale. I question the mindset of the producer, as sometimes movies are reflections of his/her own experiences. Even if the admission were free it wouldn’t be worth spending the time watching this movie. There is absolutely nothing “scary” about the film, it’s filled with psychopathic ideas, filth and more filth.
2 thumbs up! Absolutely stunning!
best movie EVAR
