Based on Rob Zombie’s comic, El Superbeasto a former world class masked wrestler with super human strength, who now finds himself in the very ordinary capacity as producer/director/star of BeastoWorld Enterprises. But when he can, Beasto spends time fighting evil along with his with his super-sexy sister, Suzi X (Sheri Moon Zombie), in the spooky Monsterland. Our hefty hero faces his biggest battle when he struggles to stop the unholy marriage of foul-mouthed stripper Velvet Von Black (Rosario Dawson) and the diabolical Dr. Satan (Paul Giamatti). Will all hell break loose or will our man save the day? The answer can only be found in The Haunted World of El Superbeasto.
I’ve been on the fence with Rob Zombie’s work. I’m a big fan of his music, my first concert was Filter and White Zombie on Valentine’s Day, a memory I hold dear to my heart. I didn’t like House of 1000 Corpses but I loved Devil’s Rejects. I have many issues with Halloween and I still can’t wrap my mind about how the ghost mom plays into Halloween 2.
Zombie has a raw way of painting a world that we don’t see every day but yet it exists out there. Digusting, scum of the earth type people and bloody violence we should be ashamed to enjoy when we watch it on the screen.
Zombie makes no excuses for his style and the approaches he takes. Sometimes I think it works in his favor and something it doesn’t. I’ve griped about Halloween a lot and it still hurts me that it went in the direction that it did but I’m still hanging in there for Rob.
After seeing the trailer for El Superbeasto my faith was a little more restored. It seems classic Rob Zombie and I love the vibrant spirit and the great cast involved. This definitely looks like a movie that I’ll enjoy and fun to watch so more on that after September 22nd when the dvd is released.
