    The Haunted World of El Superbeasto
    Paul Giamatti, Brian Posehn, Rosario Dawson, Danny Trejo, Daniel Roebuck, Tom Kenny, Tom Papa, and, of course, Sheri Moon Zombie all lend their voices to director Rob Zombie's animated tale of a washed-up luchador who makes it his mission to battle the forces of the supernatural. As the heroic El Superbeasto (voice of Papa) advances ever closer to his ultimate confrontation with the diabolical Dr. Satan (Giamatti), each adventure becomes more surreal and terrifying than the last. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I wanted to like this film. Really I did. Unfortunately, the movie completely lacks the magic of Rob's other films. I really liked "House of 1000 Corpses" and "The Devil's Rejects". The "Halloween" remakes are very good too, particularly the first one. I realize that there are limitations involved in animated features, and the concept of n*zi zombies is intriguing I must admit, but the film really has such a threadbare plot that it fails to hold interest. Furthermore, Sheri Moon Zombie's high-pitched voice is nothing short of obnoxious after 10 minutes. It becomes so irritating in fact that it is difficult to make it through the entire movie. I thought she was fine in his other films but her character is really a detractor here. Even the brilliant Paul Giamatti cannot lift this dud off the ground. Clearly he just smelled an easy paycheck, although I don't think this picture made any money to speak of. Having said all that, the animation is kind of cool, albeit simplistic. The Blu-ray treatment probably does little to improve the picture quality of animated features produced after 2000. Already looks good. Overall, unless you're a Rob Zombie completest, you don't need this. If you are really curious, rent it first.

      N@zi Zombies! Epic Win!


      The Haunted World of El Superbeasto is extremely offensive and obscene. It's full of profanity, cartoon nudity, and gore. It's certainly aimed at a very specific audience and definitely not for everybody. You just have to let your inhibitions go, relax, and keep an open mind to fully enjoy this movie. It might take some getting used to and perhaps need some time to grow on you, but it is actually really funny if you give it a chance. I didn't think I would like it when I first started watching, but by the end I was in love with it. You're most likely either going to LOVE or HATE this film. There's really not much gray area in the end. But if you're mature enough to watch a film like this and immature enough to enjoy it, then this is an experience you can not afford to miss, especially at the $6.99 I paid for it.

      Off the wall fun.


      I first came across this title when I was watching movie trailers on Hulu. It was by Rob Zombie, it wasn't for kids, it contained crude humor, and it looked funny. So I thought to myself, looks interesting, I'll bite. Funny it was. There is a number of big named voice actors doing the voices of some of the characters. The plot is kinda lame but the reason that drives El Superbeasto is funny enough for me to enjoy. This is one of those no need to think, so just sit back, relax and watch kinda of show. I picked this up on sale so for the price (a BD disc the same price as a regular DVD so it was 12.99) I thought this was well worth it. But when this isn't on sale I'd be hesitant on buying this for the 30 dollar price range for Bluray movies. Still I recommend, it's so crisp when I watch BD movies...

      All things go better with Rob Zombie.


      This is yet another great work of art by Rob Zombie. Many of his cast are folks you'll be familiar with such as his wife Sheri Moon Zombie, Sid Haig, Danny Trejo, and even Paul Giamatti. This is an adult level cartoon adventure you are sure to love if you like all of Rob's other material. Gotta have this one!

      Haven't laughed this hard in a while defiantly NOT a kids movie. If you can stand the rude and explicit humor with vulgar innuendos this movie is RIGHT for you!
