Why Rob Zombie Won't Watch House Of 1,000 Corpses Anymore
Movies - TV
Rob Zombie refuses to watch his debut film "House of 1000 Corpses," because he hates it! It's hard to look back at your early work (whether artistic or not) and see anything but mistakes, but it's a little bit of a bummer that he doesn't seem to have any fondness for his first film.
Zombie had this to say: "The first film [I directed], which people seem to love, is just a calamitous mess. Well, when it came out it seemed like everyone hated it. Now everyone acts like it's beloved in some way. All I see is flaw, upon flaw, upon flaw... upon flaw."
Sure, the film about a family of serial killers has some rough spots and the plot veers off course, but these are hallmarks of someone who is still trying to figure out their art. He might not like it, but he doesn't really have to. That's one of the great things about art — once it's out there, it's not just yours anymore.
