After flying yesterday, Adam called and asked if I was hungry. So we met at the fish place. Then decided a movie was in order. I called Movie Phone only to find that, no, Old School wasn't available. (Last showing had already started.) The Real Cancun hadn't opened yet. Damn.

So we headed up to the theater to see what they had to offer. Not much. Adam suggested House of 1000 Corpses and I didn't care too much. The other options were Anger Management and Phone Booth.

Despite what jwz says, the move was bad. Very bad. Very very bad. I have never ever seen a worse movie. Ever.

The only way I can think to possibly make up for the 2 hours wasted is to tell all my friends how great it was, in the hopes that they'll waste 2 hours and I can laugh at them.

In summary, don't see it.

Tell ya what, I blew 2 hours of me time. This movie sucks, it don't scare, it don't even raise the hackles.

You're right, don't see it.

The movie House of 1000 Corpses was completed years before it was ever released. The reason it was never released before was because it was too gory and too disturbing and no movie companies would touch it and the ratings board wouldnt approve it. Finally after many, many cuts and changes it was approved and finally released. The ending was very telegraphed and, you all know damn well, Rob Zombie would never have made an ending so predictable unless he was forced to remove the original ending. Im waiting for the director's cut. I still think the movie was great regardless. Fantastic characters and a great soundtrack. I will admit it wasnt as disturbing as I had anticipated but I believe that to be the ratings board's fault.
