Rob Zombie/Tom Papa: GREAT Combo!!
on February 26, 2012
I finally broke down & watched this animated feature because it came on so much on the premium Movie Channel. WHAT a film! Imagine everything movie classic-wise; King Kong; Zombie Nazis; the Mexican wrestlers who were in their own monster-battle movies, i.e., "Santo & The Blue Demon", etc., etc. Then imagine all that old "damsel-in-distress" fodder that was the secondary subject of those films, and their having an ironic "twist" in the usual outcome. And it all works! I LOVED the "damsel-in-distress"-like abduction of Miss Velvet von Black, a dark-haired white beauty who talks with classic "ghetto" foul-mouthed ambivalence after being kidnapped by a big, hairy gorilla. And the ironic twist of that gorilla arguing with her in proper British intonations to where she finally falls in love with him! Anymore would be to add to the humorous and artful "standing on one's head" of not experiencing the "usual" response to El Superbeasto's haunted world. It's a world populated by all our favorite goulies and ghosties of famous horror films; robots, Frankenstein monsters, vampires, werewolves, Freddie Kruger, the Phantom of the Opera, et.al. And THEY all have to be saved from Dr. Satan's (voiced by Paul Giamatti) takeover of that world. And to the rescue rides El Superbeasto (voiced by co-producer Tom Papa)with his Mexican wrestlers voiced by Danny Trejo, et.al., and Beasto's sexy sister Suzi X, voiced by Sherri Moon Zombie. It's a WILD, WONDERFUL, fun-filled ride of XXX rated (but tolerable) sex, drugs, bloody fights, you name it. It's creative and downright fearlessly imaginative. If you want an entertaining, somewhat disgusting yet actually light-hearted in nature animated film, check this one out. I was glad I did!!
