On the eve of Halloween, on October 1977, four friends--Bill, Jerry, Mary, and Denise--embark on an exciting cross-country road trip to write a guidebook about offbeat roadside attractions in America's less-travelled roads. Before long, the young explorers chance upon Captain Spaulding's Museum of Monsters and Madmen, only to become infatuated with the local legend of a deranged serial-killer doctor, and cross paths with the mysterious hitchhiker, Baby. However, when the unsuspecting group meets Baby's eccentric family after having a flat tyre, an endless night of terror, torture, and murder ensues. Has anyone ever got out alive from the House of Thousand Corpses?Written by

During his speech, he will start to tap his feet and you will hear echos as if he is standing on concrete floor and not in a dirt cemetery as his character is setup to be. See more »

I really had high hopes for this movie...
I wanted to see this movie so bad after knowing rob zombie's vast knowledge and love of horror films, but this turned out to be an over done, overly long, bad movie. I LOVE all types of italian exploitation flicks and horror films, but this movie felt so forced. It was like one of rob zombies videos that just went on and on. he uses one cliché after another of "sick twisted s**t" from grainy flash cuts to the characters talking, to weird old men characters that "creep you out". I really wanted this to be good but... sigh... it just was to, "dude this is like so f***ing twisted. Rob zombie neede to realize all the shocking stuff has been done by now, you can't try to make a more twisted than TCM family, or a more horrifying than hellraiser monster, you need substance. You just can't recreate the charm of a grainy old badly acted horror film with a modern film.
