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
(at around 30 secs) Rob Zombie considered appearing a few seconds into the film as Dr. Wolfenstein. However, after deciding that he would look "normal" no matter what make-up effects were used, he chose not to. Instead, he took on the brief role as Dr Wolfenstein's assistant (for about two seconds) and can be seen in the background and then smashing a pumpkin with a sledgehammer. See more »

Comments...see one line summary above. I would comment further but I am still mad at myself for wasting my time and money watching this HORRIBLE movie. Now I am even more upset with myself for taking the time to write this comment. Rob Zombie, Stick to the three minute videos you can handle... leave the movie making for people who know what they are doing...like the guy who made Karate Kid Part 3 or Batman and Robin. Both are unwatchable films but pure movie bliss compared to House of a 1000 Corpses. Man did I hate that movie. Maybe Zombie can go to film school before he makes the sequel and learn how his cheap camera tricks are amature at best and quite annoying. There, I put in my two cents. I wish that was the price I paid at the box office.
