“The Haunted World of El Superbeasto” is a curious case examine for Zombie as a filmmaker. For starters, it is a good film. It is not nice, although as directed and co-written by Rob Zombie, it is one in every of his most profitable efforts. It’s also Zombie’s first and solely animated effort.
“The Haunted World of El Superbeasto” follows the titular El Superbeasto (Tom Papa), a masked wrestler and exploitation movie director, and his sister, Suzi-X (Sheri Moon Zombie), as they endeavor to cease Dr. Devil (Paul Giamatti) from taking up the world. It entails a number of satanic gobbledygook — however it does have Rosario Dawson voicing Velvet Von Black, and Rosario Dawson is rarely something however a welcome presence. It is violent, exploitative, and crude, but it has significantly extra coronary heart than most of Zombie’s films. It is also gorgeously animated and satisfies, particularly when launched in 2009, an underserved area of interest. Grownup animated fare is tough to return by, and although it is partly as a result of how small the subgenre itself is, “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto” is without doubt one of the greatest.
