Rob Zombie's directorial debut:
Basically a modern more visually lavish version of Texas Chainsaw with some plot variations:
4 dumb young adults car breaks down near house inhabited by disfunctional family with some nasty hobbies
Rob Zombie wallows in campy/trashy aspects of characters and sets, lots of priceless little moments and one line zingers in dialog. Sets are very rich in detail with lots of trashy campy detail,
murder museum opening scence good example, lots of cool color variations almost like music video. Can't really say I was ever scared (but I have high tolerance for gore) and body count is much lower than expected from title.
Yes that is Karen Black as the mother of this misfit family, things must be really slow for her, he he.
Also was waiting for Rob to do cameo appearance in film like Hitchcock does.........is Dr Satan Rob Zombie?
BTW Toby Hooper original director of Texas Chainsaw really likes this flix.
