Trivia

Around one hundred digital effects shots appear in the film, mostly to create gore. The scenes involving objects coming into direct contact with skin (like throat slitting, people getting shot in the head or neck, or stabbings) were created digitally. The violence that didn't involve direct skin contact (like people getting shot in areas covered by clothing) were achieved practically. Rob Zombie originally intended to create all of the special effects using only techniques available in the 1970s, but time constraints prevented this. See more »

Goofs

When Otis and Baby are driving to the motel, on the dashboard there is a closed box of cigarettes, yet in the next shot they are open. See more »

Zombie gets it right!
7 August 2005 | by (Maine, USA) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie having seen 1000 Corpses which I thought was a great retro B style horror in the Texas Chainsaw massacre genre.

This movie FAR exceeded any expectation I had. Zombie NAILED it in this one. Classic Freeze frames, awesome soundtrack(used with purpose)-Just enough gore with out going over the top.. the essential random nudity shots that we B fans have come to expect. Suspenseful through-out.

I realize that what makes all of these components work:

A- This movie (Unlike 99% of all B Horros) is not predictable. You do not know what is going to happen next.

B- Zombie builds characters. You learn history and connections, and see things from their view.

C- Slight comedic aspect added.

Summary: MUST SEE, MUST OWN

in the words of my horror loving awe-struck friend "This is hands down the best B horror I have ever seen!"
