While I can’t say I’ve loved every film Rob Zombie has directed, one thing he’s definitely great at is crafting interesting things. Many of Zombie’s films are divisive, but it’s rare to see someone without a strong opinion on them.
One great thing about Zombie’s movies are that they’re all unapologetically him, and if some people don’t like it, he really couldn’t care less. That attitude began back with his very first movie, 2003’s House of 1000 Corpses.
House of 1000 Corpses introduced the world to the unforgettable characters of Otis (Bill Moseley), Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), and Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), who would of course return for 2005 sequel The Devil’s Rejects.
The Fireflies will soon return again in 3 From Hell, but as brought to light by Arrow in the Head, Zombie revealed during a 2013 interview with Larry King that he considered turning House of a 1000 Corpses into a musical.
Wow, can you imagine Otis, Baby, and Spaulding singing their hearts out as part of a Broadway-style musical, all while they tormented their victims? I admit, I’d buy a ticket to see that. I do wonder though if the actors can sing.
