HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES!!! 14 years ago today this little @robzombie horror gem where my friends and I have an unfortunate with some local folks came out on the big screen. Rob has been one of my best friends since we met at the @mtv music awards back in 95. In 2000, he called me and said, "Hey I'm directing a movie and I wrote a part for you. He's a completely loud, obnoxious asshole. It's perfect for you!!" We laughed at how true that was and I immediately said yes. We shot the film on the back lot at Universal which was a trip--the corpse house was actually the Best Little Whorehouse In Texas house (for those of you who do the studio tour) and @rainnwilson & I would sneak up the hill and have dinner every night at the Psycho house (which was sadly an empty shell inside with only work lights). My character Jerry (a lot of people still don't realize that was me) had a different but gruesome fate in the original ending, but then Universal gave Rob more money to make an ending where we actually see Dr. Satan (which we didn't originally if I remember correctly). Ironically, after it was all done the studio decided the film was too violent and refused to release it. It floated in lawyer land for a couple of years until Rob was able to get it back with @lionsgate. When it finally DID come out, I don't think it was all that well received but over time with home video it took its place as a horror classic. Horror was really different back then--kind of watered down--and Rob really wanted to bring back that gritty 70s super fucked up everyone-dies-for-being-in-the-wrong-place place films and I truly believe it inspired the next wave of horror. I'm so proud to be a part of it and sincerely love when people asked me to shout "DR. SATAAAAAAN!!!"
