Well, I saw Rob Zombie’s directorial debut, House of a Thousand Corpses. It’s a sort of not-very postmodern mish-mash of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Herschell Gordon Lewis, and if you don’t know what i mean, lucky you. It does what it does with style and is very effective, but what it’s doing is by definition naff, it’s not brilliant. Doctor Satan is also an out of place stab at a franchise monster stuffed into the last reel. This jars badly and rather spoils the gory joie de vivre of what’s gone before. And they got the name of one of the characters wrong on the promotional cocktail. D’oh.
