With days away, I guess I could review some very essential "Halloween" Slashers out there. So let's see today's meat!
Starring: Sid Haig, Karen Black and Bill Moseley
I remember all the horrors this film did to my young psyche: scalped victims, dismembered folks turned into side show attractions, daughters forced to touch the skinned faces of their fathers; all of these were too much for a tender ten year old me, but then I decided to see it again (Now. As an adult of sorts) and I start to see the “art” that is Rob Zombie's debut film.
|Never give Ill to a clown|
|This is why Bill Moseley is God|
|Personally, I go for younger girls...|
While I do agree for some for calling it a mindless, plotless, jumbled piece of violence, profanity and forbidden sensibilities, it’s still a entertainingly dark little devil who lives up to its name and provided some good throwbacks to the 70s exploitation and over-the-top grindhouse shock.
|This is just sad...|
|"Doctor! You've done it!"|
Of course, there’s always gonna be superior titles who did better, one of them being this film’s own sequel “The Devil’s Rejects”, but as a cult-hit I do warmly embrace this stabby-little backstabber. It’s one of the weirdest, most unique display of horror that would disturb, shock and cringe millions. It’s a horror film by horror fans for horror fans.
