Best Rob Zombie movie

I think it's Devil's Rejects, but Halloween was pretty competent.

Devil's Rejects bar none. It was beautifully shot, had some great characters and good dialogue. It made H1kC feel like a student film; it was a narrative mess.

Halloween continued his establishing eye for horror, but was a bore and a mere side step into his new film career. I think RZ excels at original products not other people's ideas. We will see.

I don't know if i'd say they all sucked, but so far for me, none of them have lived up to the hype and praise so many have for his stuff.

I plan to see halloween this weekend. But I have seen his other films so I voted for rejects. I'd actually consider it to be the best horror film of the decade. A lot of the new horror flicks in the past years have been really shitty. Then Rejects comes along and shows that there can still be good horror movies.

Haven't seen Halloween yet so I won't vote. House... was OK, but DR is one of the most oustanding, remarkable and talented films of the genre in the past few years.

Yeah see I got caught up in the 1000 Corpses hype and was really let down so I didn't even bother with DR, or any other RZ movie for that matter.

I think this is going to be a very easy poll to predict, because he's only made 1 movie that wasn't a piece of shit: The Devil's Rejects.

The Devil's Rejects. It's one of the best horror/exploitation films to come out period. I think it's a near-perfect intense motherfucker of a ride. I've only seen the workprint of Halloween, but I'm sure the theatrical cut (from what I've been hearing) won't change my mind on this ranking. Ho1KC was fun, but not nearly as good as I wanted it to be.

I liked Ho1KC more than Devil's Rejects, will wait to see Halloween before I place my vote.

I like them all, but nothing tops my love for "The Devil's Rejects." It's one of my favorite genre movies period.

I thought Devil's Rejects was interesting. House of 1000 Corpses I couldn't stand for 5 minutes. Halloween I never need to see again.

I was thinking the same thing. I think he's gotten better with every film.

1. Halloween
2. Devil's Rejects.
3. House of 1,000 Corpses

Easy answer for me, 'The Devils Rejects', I think he nailed that one perfectly. I remember all the hype for 'House of 1,000 Corpses' and I saw it opening night and I still don't know what all the hype was about. Don't personally care for his take on 'Halloween' either.

I'm in complete agreement.

I'd say Devil's Reject even though I felt he copped out at the very end and had that stupid slow-mo scene - that scene should have been VERY bloody and graphic.
