Ranking Rob Zombie’s Movies – Meltdown
It’s that time of the year, time to get your scare on. I’m really excited to host the Haunted Michigan podcast to help you along the way, but today I thought I’d take a look at Rob Zombie’s movie catalog.
The Lords Of Salem. I wanted to like this movie, I really did. I saw it in the theater the very first day it came out. I was perplexed, and maybe a little over-served, but I’m just not into this movie. Hell, I’ve even watched twice just to make sure.
The Munsters. Now, I see what he was doing here, and it’s not bad. I guess I wasn’t a big Munsters fan growing up. While I don’t think it’s bad, it’s just not for me. I did watch it on the first day of it’s release, I guess I’m just looking for something a little scarier.
31. If I recall, this was the movie that Rob put out after The Lords Of Salem. While it’s not bad, it’s not great. I was just so-so over it. I think I owe this one a re-watch.
3 From Hell. This is the final installment of the trilogy. I thought it was pretty decent, but I didn’t like it as much as the first two, The Devil’s Rejects and House Of 1,000 Corpses, but worth a watch.
The Halloween Movies. Rob was on a roll between 2007/2009. I really like both of these, but can’t pick a favorite. I’ll leave that up to you guys.
Here’s where it gets tricky for me. I’m not sure which one of his first two movies I like the most. I’m going to go with The Devil’s Rejects. Anyone who’s watched the final scene will understand what my brother told me. He said that I’ll never listen to “Free Bird” the same way….he was right. Both movies are stellar. Rob built a scary cast of characters, for sure. House Of 1,000 Corpses put him on the horror movie map, The Devil’s Reject solidified him there.
