    Looks like Rob Zombie's long-awaited horror flick should make it into cinemas stateside for April 11. Although this isn't the first release date its had so don't hold your breath.

    Yeah, just like it was definitely coming out last Halloween :rolleyes:

    Was exicted about this film a year ago, now I think it's going to be one big Studio-intervened dog's dinner :(

    A real shame, although I really hope I'm proved wrong. Rob does seem to have principles so hopefully he's not allowing this to see the light of day unless it's at least half decent.

    i think that maybe why its taken so long to get released, I don't think he's backing down for the most part over cuts. And even if he has to there's bound to be a Director's Cut on DVD.:D

    he's had to. It's going theatrical with an R rating followed by (last I heard) joint R and Unrated DVD releases.

    It's been downloadable for a while now. Opinions vary from "it's OK but nothing special" to "it's got a lot of blood in it, hasn't it".
    They even did a few press screenings over here in the UK about 18 months ago.
    It's a shame it's been on the shelf so long really - now people are going to expect a bit more than the film can deliver.

    Hi sofaboy I hope you don’t mind me merging the two post, they had the same title and subject and you haven’t got any replies so far.

    Tartan have picked it up for UK release.
    I'd imagine it'll be the uncut version that gets submitted to our beloved BBFC. No timeframe yet as to when it'll get released though.


    I'd rather see a release set for Don Coscarelli's Bubba Ho-tep first, though

    I like the look of both of those two and have been waiting with baited breath for both. House of the the dead looks like it could be a hoot too, Should be pretty gory as well with a bit of luck. Website is here :smashin:

    This was taken from a supposedly 'bad' review of 'House of 1000 Corpses':

    "After suffering through The House of 1000 Corpses I am beginning to think that Universal was on the right track with their decision to hold off releasing the film, not because the movie is sick and depraved (it clearly is), but for the simply reason that The House of 1000 corpses is an unenjoyable snarled and mutilated mess of a film without a single clue as to what kind of movie it really wants to be. Written and Directed by gore-minded rocker and film neophyte Rob Zombie (known best for his work with the music group White Zombie), The House of 1000 Corpses starts out as a fun throwback to the ultra-low budget horror films of the 70's but it quickly disintegrates into a fractured mess, a cacophony of film styles and techniques that feels more like a freak show gone bad than a movie. Think of someone pulling out an overloaded and disorganized scrapbook of articles on serial killers and then wildly flips the pages between gory photos and sick descriptions, and your not too far off the experience of The House of 1000 Corpses."

    Sounds OK so far...

    "I was pretty surprised to see that The House of 1000 Corpses received an R Rating from the Rating's Board. It's true that many of the extreme scenes and violence are shown in a shaky/flash oriented style. But someone on the Ratings Board must be smoking crack not to give a movie that contains cannibalism, decapitation, necrophilia, teen rape, torture and mutilation and NC-17 rating. If nothing else The House of 1000 Corpses proves that the NC-17 rating is really only reserved for films with strong sexual scenes, not extremely sick and strong violence."

    Where/when can I see it?!? :smashin:

    from www.dvdfile.com ....

    On August 12th, Lion's Gate Home Entertainment will release Rob Zombie's directorial debut, the highly-controversial and oft-postponed The House of 1000 Corpses. Yikes! Lion's Gate will release the flick in R-rated and Unrated versions, and will be presented in anamorphic widescreen and 5.1 Dolby surround. Extras include an audio commentary by Zombie, an isolated music score, behind-the-scenes footage, a still gallery, theatrical trailers, and possibly more to be announced.

    Nice. That's several weeks before it gets its one-off UK theatrical premier
