31 scary movie moments – 22) Denise walks into Dr Satan’s lair in House of 1000 Corpses (2003)

We’re big fans of Rob Zombie’s horror and exploitation films, and House of 1000 Corpses is OTT and ultra disturbing – bringing us the cult characters of Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Otis (Bill Moseley).

Four young people stumble across Captain Spaulding’s bizarre ‘Museum of Monsters & Mayhem’ when researching a book about strange roadside attractions. They learn about the legend of Dr Satan, a master surgeon with questionable ethics, and then get captured by the Firefly family from hell who start to torture and kill the group. Potential final girl Denise (Erin Daniels) is left alone in an underground lair…and guess who it belongs to…

Review: Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010)

Tucker & Dale…is a refreshing comedy horror which reverses the ‘rednecks chase down and murder hopeless teens in the woods’ scenario. Turns out Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine) are actually quite sweet and the teens they meet end up accidentally killing themselves as the run away from them in fear, thinking our heroes are the enemy. Yep, running into wood chippers, impaling themselves on trees and accidental gunfire. These kids are stooopid.

It’s an enormous amount of fun and Labine’s Dale is especially endearing. There’s a guilty pleasure from watching the hapless teens scare themselves to death (literally) and a cute parallel love interest plot between Dale and ‘final girl’ Allison (Katrina Bowden).

With talks of a sequel in the pipeline, we’d love to see more of these two. It’s an enormous laugh and there’s plenty more escapades that Tucker and Dale could get into. And with so many grisly potential scenarios, there’s legs on this one (just like in the wood chipper – gross!)

 

GORE RATING: 3/5

SCARES: 2/5

DISTURBIA: 2/5
