The sequel to House of 1000 Corpses – the Firefly family are ambushed at their isolated home by Sheriff Wydell and a squad of armed men guns blazing – yet only Otis and his sister, Baby, manage to escape the barrage of bullets unharmed. Hiding out in a backwater motel, the wanted siblings wait to rendezvous with their errant father, Captain Spaulding, killing whoever happens to stand in their way.
While I ultimately didn't think that Stone's film did the best job of pulling off that kind of sympathy for the devil, it still proved preferable to what Zombie does with this film.
It is hard for me to decide, sitting here and reviewing the emotions I experienced while viewing Rob Zombie's second ever attempt at film creation, whether to start by lambasting the end product or highly praising it.
