House a mess!

I’m a Rob fanboy…he gets lot of hate for being a well rounded artist in the genre and beyond. In an interview, Zombie expressed his opinions about House of 1000 Corpses being a failure in his eyes. Zombie said, “The first film [I directed], which people seem to love, is just a calamitous mess. Well, when it came out it seemed like everyone hated it. Now everyone acts like it’s beloved in some way. All I see is flaw, upon flaw, upon flaw… upon flaw.”

Though this may come as a shock to fans, there could be numerous reasons for Zombie’s feelings about the film. Rob Zombie is typically known for his sharp tongue and brutal honesty, and doesn’t seem to pull any punches here.

He’s cited difficulties with production before, which appears to be standard fare for horror productions that have gone on to be very successful, like Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Tarantino reveals to Consequence of Sound: “I am a big fan of the Rob Zombie Halloweens. When I saw the first one, I wouldn’t say I liked it at all. I was not too fond of the aesthetic. I didn’t like everything that he added to it, and then the last hour becomes this fast forward remake of the first one. What the fuck is all this shit? Eight months later, I watched it on video… and I really liked them once I got all the preconceptions out of my head. That kid [Daeg Faerch] is really good. I mean, what did I think Rob Zombie was going to do with it? Do I want him to do something else? I like his Sam Peckinpah aesthetic. So, now that I didn’t have a bug up my ass about it, I was able to appreciate it. And again, it’s that kid who got me into it, and Danielle Harris is fantastic.” 3 From Hell made 10.2 million over a 3 million dollar budget on a minimal release. Proving yet again, love him or hate him, Rob is here to stay! The consequence of Sound, Screen Rant.
