House of Murder and Mayhem

Sunday, April 13, 2003 9:42 AM
This weekend, the movie "House of a 1000 Corpses" opened. In the movie was a ride called, "Captain Spaldings House of Murder and Mayhem." The ride would have you sit in a car, as the captain would explain various scary scenes of real murderers(Ed Gein, Dr. Satan, etc.) Dr. Satan was the "local legend" of a mass murderer which the characters in the movie were trying to find his grave/hanging tree, when a lot of bad luck hits them and they are placed in the hands of a sick family that loves carnage candy. The ride was pretty cool and was featured at the beginning of the film. I would suggest that you all go and check it out if you like horror movies in the vein of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The movie was really sick and twisted like that. Very Cool!

IT really doesn't have to do with coasters....but it does have to do with amusement rides.

I do agree that was a pretty cool little attraction. Kind of cheesy but cool.

Sorry, Hollister, but one of my criteria for whether or not a movie is good does NOT hinge on whether or not I can see boobs on-screen...

Besides, I see enough boobs on these message boards...(using the first definition)

Wow, some of my posts geared at 'Gator that end up as football talk have had more to do with coasters and amusement rides than that.

I'm actually interested in seeing House of 1000 Corpses, and have been since Rob Zombie's "Sinister Urge" hit the shelves. Hearing that there's a vague amusement park connection makes it even more entertaining.

It's not high cinema, but if you go in with the right mindset and expect to have fun, it should be a good time.

That movie rocks! How about the scene when...

**SPOILERS**

He is about to shoot the cop in the head, but pauses for like 20 seconds, then all of a sudden, POW! That is classic.

I like how Rob Zombie obviously loves Halloween, haunted houses and horror movies. However, I found the movie to be vile.

The movie was actually based on a real amusement ride. I read in an interview that Rob Zombie was helping to put together a temporary haunted house attraction for Universal (I think?) and he thought up the plot for the ride - so he decided to make a movie out of it. After the movie was made, Universal rejected it.. but luckily Lions Gate decided to pick it up.

"The movie was actually based on a real amusement ride."

I know- I went in it at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights 2000 in Hollywood. It was terrifying! It was neat to see the same props and rooms from the haunted house in the movie. The movie just wasn't my cup of tea, unfortunately. :-(

I just saw the movie! Texas Chainsaw Massacre type family and plot meet Hellraiser. Very messed up! I liked it!

As for the ride I thought it was a cool theme! You people forgot to mention Albert Fish who was the first one they encountered!

I think parks would shy away from glorifying killers, mobsters and and other creeps. Maybe somthing based on horror movie villans might work though. The finale would have a a missing character in the last area. When you exit the area you think is the end when the missing guy pops out and switches the track your on thru a wild morbid coaster!

Since were on the MACABRE and serial killers and music with this post. Here's one of my favorite bands. \m/

This movie was made quite a few years ago, i've been waiting for it to ever come out, not thinking it would, and now it's out, but not ANYWHERE near me! i hope I can find a place with it soon, as i'm and avid horror fan, and have waited for this for longer than the matrix!

Yeah, if coasters WEREN'T men we'd have Raging Cow instead!;)

Hey Hollister. Is your name referring to Hollister, the surfer style clothing company, or Hollister the landlocked California farming town? I find it odd that the clothing company named Southern California beach wear after a small Northern California farming town nowhere near the beach.

Their clothes are great though. I go there all the time.
