The plot: El Superbeasto (Papa) is a washed-up luchador (and horndog egomaniac) who fights crime in Monsterland with his ass-kicking sister Suzi X (Sheri Moon Zombie) when he doesn’t have anything better to do, like macking on undead babes. When foul-mouthed (but hot) stripper Velvet Von Black (Rosario Dawson) is kidnapped by the ape servant of the evil Dr. Satan (Giamatti: The Amazing Screw-On Head), Beasto and Suzi intervene in a bid to prevent the bad doctor from wedding his unholy bride and earning the “sexy powers of Hell.”

 

Verdict: A Rob Zombie film that works? Believe it. The Haunted World of El Superbeasto is cock-full (sorry, chock-full) of Nazi zombies, horny robots, big-ass titties, sex, sin and swear words. It’s also funny and smart, and can you believe Zombie got Paul Giamatti do participate. That’s almost A-list legit!

     Say what you will about his live-action films, Zombie’s element might actually be animation. His macabre, absurdist but relentlessly populist take on horror is suited to the larger-than-life, colourful shenanigans of the cartoon world… although this isn’t the sort of film you show your kids unless you’ve given up on all form of parental responsibility.

 

Extras: Meh…Deleted scenes & shots, alternate scenes. Nothing interesting. What about a featurette explaining why it took two years to get released?
