Back in August of 2009 a little horror movie premiered called H2. I was expecting a good old fashioned slasher flick, reasonable right? Instead what I was subjected to was the magnum opus of brutality from a man already known for carnage. The imagery bandied about in this mess of a film seared into my head and I simply could not get it out.
Ignoring the minor grievances that most have expressed regarding the shitty script, the bile spewing white trash they call actors and director Rob Zombies endless desire to stick his talentless (thought beautiful) wife into every fucking movie he makes. This movie still deserves it’s place in the pantheon of great horror movies. For one simple fact, it is the most brutal mainstream film ever produced. Others have rivaled it, but when all is said and done…this one is sort of untouchable. I can’t remember the last time I squirmed like that in a movie. The beat down Michael Myers puts on the strip club employees is legendary.
If you place the legacy of the series on the backburner and watch this for what it is…a visually stunning behemoth of heavy metal and hatred, you will see that Rob Zombie might suck at scripts and dialogue, but his horror visuals are the best in the business right now.
