More Films From the Early 2000's

You thought Halloween was over 2 weeks ago? WRONG. After much deliberation, Scott has decided to take one for the team and pick a Rob Zombie Halloween movie. No, not that one. Or that one. Or that one. Or...oh whatever, it's HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES from 2003! We're pissing everyone off with our annoying laugh and soliloquizing at cheerleaders about popular posts on /r/conspiracy so strap in for another dose of TCM2 fun even though we already discussed that movie.

It's summertime and your HMN boys are downwind of something stinky, so of course we need to investigate. Following our noses, we stumble across the underappreciated 2005 remake of the Vincent Price classic HOUSE OF WAX. While we may not all agree on the merits of this film, we do agree that the practical effects and kills are delightfully gruesome. Also, props to whoever made Elisha Cuthbert look like a Plain Jane here... that is no small task. Wax poetic with us on the first episode of Year Five of Horror Movie Night!

We're rockin' and rollin' back into horror territory and takin' care of business with a sneer and a hip thrust. Join us in slobbering all over Bruce Campbell's chin in the fantastic BUBBA HO-TEP (2002)! We are joined this episode by our pal Ralph (@vhsdude/@kaijupod) and are in unanimous agreement that this movie rules and Bruce's Elvis impersonation is pretty damn good, man. Plus, how can you go wrong with a Don Coscarelli flick featuring a mummy cowboy who sucks souls from buttholes? Enjoy as we break out the rusty trombones this week on Horror Movie Night!
