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

In interviews Rob Zombie said how lot of the violent and disturbing scenes cut for R rating included Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie). Scenes showing her being a necrophiliac were also deleted from the final film, but few shots from one such scene, her kissing a skeleton and touching herself with it, was left in. See more »
I love horror films, even the cheesy ones. But this is not horror. Its a rip off from start to finish. Why cant horror films be more original and just scare the pants off people like they used to? I would not mind the most simplistic storyline, with an obvious ending just as long that there was HORROR in the film. OK there is some form of shock value (to a minimal effect). It was like watching the results of 'Last House on the Left vs Texas Chainsaw Massacre Goes Horribly Wrong', and Last House was nothing to shout about. I only watched this movie to the end because I paid to rent the damn thing. By the time I got to the end of the film I found the whole thing embarrassing. Also there are plot holes everywhere and parts of the music score did not fit at all. If you watch this movie turn the sound down when the police officer goes into slo mo, or keep it on for full comedy value! Two good things about the film (after all the panning) is Sid Haig and Sheri Moon. Haig's performance is top notch and Sheri Moon was very attractive and shows signs of acting potential.
