What's the story? Who cares? It's dumb. This film is about chaotic, childish glee. It begins with a classic black-and-white Universal move by giving us a friendly warning that what we are about to see may horrify us. He's not wrong, but the movie is far from scary in the traditional sense. It takes on an animation style similar to Ren & Stimpy and utilizes devices and sound effects from all of the innocent classic cartoons we grew up watching. Then all the girls take off their clothes and use prehensile female anatomy in ways that make you embarrassed to be watching then you see your favorite horror characters and get all happy and then all the tailkicking starts and there's Nazi werewolves (Zombie really likes Nazis..and werewolves...and especially Nazi werewolves) and zombies and Nazi zombies and they have their own theme song and then there's more boobs and this transforming robot that's all horny for this awesome chick who steal Hitler's pickled head and Superbeasto is a luchador who shoves a cat down his pants so he has a bulge and there is Dr Satan who is really a nerd and has a talking gorilla with a screw in his head then all this stuff happens and it's crazy as fu.......[deep breath].....Yeah, so this flick gets a bit crazy at times.
So I think we've established that the humor in this one is decidedly lowbrow. Let's talk homages, references, and cameos. It's pretty much the biggest draw here unless you are one to pleasure yourself to cartoons (which is okay, as a song in the movie informs us, because Japanese people do it every day....nice). Plenty of horror icons ranging from Dr Phibes to the Bride of Frankenstein and The Fly as well as characters from Zombies' own films, but then there's references to everything from Benny Hill and Jerry Lewis to Charlie Chaplin (who Beasto mixes up with Hitler) and movies like Taxi Driver and Planet of the Apes. Other amusing cameos of note include Courtney Love, the Olsen Twins, and a featured role for Michael Myers.....as street pizza. This is an infinitesimal sampling. Honestly, aside from the sheer twisted insanity the massive unending pile of homages and cameos are what is going to keep your interest for the full hour and twenty. This has to be some kind of record. Eat it, Tarantino!
Voice cast. Awesome. Rosario Dawson lets fly some of the most staggeringly ignorant ebonics you've ever heard onscreen. Normally, I'm unimpressed by this cheap style of humor, but in this particular setting it did the trick for me. The Mexican caricatures, however, go down as a fail in spite of the marvelous man-god Danny Trejo lending his voice. Getting a real Mexican to play a caricature just doesn't sound funny, I guess. Tom Papa is pretty much The Man playing the title character. He has a really classic voice and delivers the lines with the perfect amount of sleaze and glee. Rob's wife Sheri Moon Zombie was born to be a voice actress. As cute as she is onscreen, when she's reduced to just a voice to an animated caricature her gigantic personality is just unbelievably charming. Again, big thumbs up for the cast.
Throw in some self-referential humor (including a song that plays during an homage scene stolen from a classic horror film that laments the cliche parody and asks if they got permission to do it) more cartoon boobs and ebonics slang, and even more cameos and references and that pretty much sums it up. The special features are a few minutes of extremely brief deleted scenes (one has Leatherface in it) and a very long set of unfinished alternate scenes. I'd have hoped for at least a commentary or making of after all the delays but whatever, Zombie. "The Haunted World of Superbeasto" is a great time if you're looking for a cartoon to keep as far away from your children/parents/grandparents/girlfriends as possible. You may not get away with all of your brain cells intact, but you'll probably leave with a smile. A stupid, stupid smile.
3 1/2 stars rounded up because I have a strong urge to watch this again. Soon.
rob zombie did the comic book this was inspired from.he also drew for "beavis and butthead do america" during beavis's peyote trip and directed the movie "house of 1000 corpses".no the dr satan from that is not the same dr satan from this film.
this movie is about a lucha libre star[mexican professinal wresler],a big shape shifting droid and a sexually obsessed crime fighter chick taking on nazi bikers,a permiscious ,cussing wanna be chick,a giant gorilla and yes,dr satan to stop the end of the world.
so if you could stand the goofy,dizzying breakneck pace of old school cartoons,you love porn[even animated],and can stand ultra violence all to the tune of 1000 cuss words a second,this movie is for you!
if you dislike even one of those elements,skip it because the movie is full of all of them!
in this movies defense,i would like to say,it is a welcome change from the horrors that are all too commonplace these days.i say go ahead and watch it!just dont do it while your kids or girl friend are around.
