So Tura Satana, long-ago terror hottie, will be coming back and lending her voice to her classic role of Varla from Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! to Rob Zombie’s upcoming animated slushpile The Haunted World of El Superbeasto.
Which of course leaves me cold–I say that Zombie has all the writing and directorial skills of a bowl of chocolate pudding but with none of the appetizing qualities. Leave aside for a minute his music, which all sounds vaguely similar and all reminds me of a nursing home choir whose members all had a simultaneous high-speed stroke in the middle of Ave Maria, but it’s his film capabilities that we’re concerned with.
And anyone who sat through the misery that was House of 1000 Corpses already can agree with me that Rob Zombie should not be allowed to make movies any more.
Of course, we’ve got to give him some credit for reverence to the past, and bringing in Tura Satana to do some voice work is definitely showing some respect. But that’s about all the respect he gets from me–needless to say I’m looking forward to The Haunted World of El Superbeasto about as much as I’m looking forward to amateur oral surgery.
