Southern Discomfort – The Gruesome Greatness of House of 1000 Corpses


    Greetings ghouls, it’s your glamorously gothic girl Sharon returning on this morbid Monday with another killer recommendation to keep our sinister October cinema streak shrieking!

    Yesterday I prescribed revisiting 80s slate-slasher Friday the 13th to revel in the raw, ruthless backwoods brutality that spawned hockey mask legend Jason Voorhees. Hopefully you maniacs took my advice and paid tribute to Camp Crystal Lake’s gruesome legacy.

    Today I aim to continue our crash course in skeezy slasher cinema with an underseen gem celebrating demented families, redneck rituals, and all the macabre mayhem Rob Zombie’s twisted imagination could muster – 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses!

    Zombie goes for the gruesome gusto in his directorial debut, unleashing an all-out assault on the senses. The gonzo plot follows two couples touring roadside oddities who become trapped in the lair of the gleefully sadistic Firefly family. What follows is a relentless descent into a backwoods house of horrors, with no mercy for the poor visitors…or viewer!

    The wickedly stylized violence and skuzzy 70s cinema vibe echo Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. But Zombie injects his redneck nightmare with an even more surreal, psychedelic tone. The Fireflys gleefully embrace their repulsive hillbilly heritage amid the cartoon carnage. Sid Haig and Bill Moseley have demented fun as the clan’s patriarch and notorious killer Otis. And Sheri Moon Zombie makes a memorably seductive and sinister baby doll.

    Luckily for horror hustlers on a budget, you can currently catch this macabre masterpiece streaming for free on Tubi! With its grungy grainy film look, Midwest college kids in peril, and ‘hellbilly’ antagonists, House of 1000 Corpses proves a worthy follow-up for our Friday the 13th viewing. Both celebrate the gruesome excesses of 70s and 80s horror with their own colorful backwoods flair. And Zombie’s movie digs even deeper into the kind of deranged horror fandom I know you adore!

    Let me know if Zombie’s loving ode to 70s horror schlock satisfies your seasonal bloodlust. And stay tuned creepsters – I’ll return soon with even more nostalgic horror favorites to prep for Halloween! Happy Haunting!
