O ne aspect of Rob Zombie we can all agree on is that his music and films aren't for everyone. The images of killing and ultra-violence shown in his slasher films are graphic, grotesque, sordid, and often misogynistic. In House of Corpses , the lead killer cuts off the face of a man, wears it like a mask, and kisses the dead man's tied-up daughter on the mouth, saying, "Who's your daddy? They like it bloody and wrong. They want violence.
A Dual Interview with Mr. Zombie and Psychologist P. Landers
Sign In. Hide Spoilers. Yes, it's a Rob Zombie movie- meaning that he casts his friends in an overlong music video for a song that has only overstayed its welcome on the classic rock airwaves by thirty years. Know that the odyssey of the washed-up wrestler El Superbeasto and his sister Susie-X Sheri Moon Zombie in a Mary Sue role through the Haunted World holds so much promise and in its three years of development we all had every right to be excited. Look, shock gags are like betta fish- they do not mix well with others of their kind. When filming or drawing something provocative, it needs time to captivate. Take root in the viewer's brain watch "Meet The Feebles"- ah HAH; see the people near you cringing upon mention of that movie? THAT'S how you shock someone! In El Superbeasto however, there is so much breasts and blood and gore and breasts and blood and gore and breasts and blood and gore and breasts and blood and gore and breasts and blood and gore and breasts and blood and gore and breasts and blood and gore in the first FIVE MINUTES that it's like the aforementioned bettas in the same bowl- they've immediately rendered each other to shreds, and all we're left to watch is a bowl of lifeless mud.

It was everything. I was media obsessed. But back then, when you look at it there were so few channels. What was on TV was actually more selective. Everything is OK. It was the deputy role, which Dave Sheridan killed. You just make an acting choice. But I know we both love this type of actor — the William Forsythe. Emmett Walsh vibe. You watch the film knowing at the very least this character actor will deliver a performance.
I will be marrying my doctor boyfriend soon, and I have to say, I have never been more lonely. They seriously have movies about it. I am no longer the vivacious young girl……life has not been easy. Honestly, it isn't her fault.
