House of 1000 Corpses

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
The soundtrack to Rob Zombie's long-delayed, shock-filled film House of 1000 Corpses complements the gory happenings with an oddball disc that goes a long way toward replicating in the aural realm. The ringmaster wastes no time in setting the tone of this multi-ring freak show, tagging a carnival barker intro "Howdy Folks" onto the creepy-crawly calliope-thrash of his titular theme song. Zombie contributes a fair portion of the disc's tunes himself, ranging from the patented hellbilly stomp of "Run Rabbit Run" to the lascivious graveyard rutting of "Pussy Liquor."

The soundtrack to Rob Zombie's long-delayed, shock-filled film House of 1000 Corpses complements the gory happenings with an oddball disc that goes a long way toward replicating in the aural realm. The ringmaster wastes no time in setting the tone of this multi-ring freak show, tagging a carnival barker intro "Howdy Folks" onto the creepy-crawly calliope-thrash of his titular theme song. Zombie contributes a fair portion of the disc's tunes himself, ranging from the patented hellbilly stomp of "Run Rabbit Run" to the lascivious graveyard rutting of "Pussy Liquor." He also peppers the proceedings with strangely diffuse oldies that, despite their incongruous surface, actually make perfect sense in this context. As such, Buck Owens's "Who's Gonna Mow Your Grass" can sidle up to the Ramones' "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" with toxic merriment -- and anytime a tall glass of Slim Whitman gets poured, you can be sure the festivities will ultimately get out of hand. The dozen or so songs -- including an update of the funk classic "Brick House," with Lionel Ritchie at the fore -- share space with filmic snippets that'd do Roger Corman proud.
