I was looking over this list on my lunch break:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vegetarians

And did a double take when I saw Zombie's name on there. I am a HUGE fan of his music but if you've ever seen his movies, (and I can't even watch them), then maybe you would be as shocked as I was.

Some other shockers for me were Goldberg, (don't know if any of ya'll watch wrestling....lol), Bob Barker, and John Coltrane.... too cool. :)

Yeah! Zombie did an awesome piece in defense of turkeys for PETA around thanksgiving, really cool!

I'm a fan of his music and I like a few of his movies too, it's great hearing he's compassionate and smart too

Definitely. I couldn't even make it through The Devil's Rejects (mainly because I was watching it with my parents and was getting really uncomfortable).

Goldberg is surprising too.

After seeing that movie it's all I can think about when I see Rob Zombie or hear anything about him.

I consider myself a very compassionate person, but I have had some shockingly disturbing ideas for animations when I was studying it at University...Its easy enough to have a twisted creative mind and be compassionate in life when you are able to seperate the two.
Also...I dont think his films are 'torture porn'. There is nudity yes (and a little sex in Devils Rejects' but Id hardly say its pornagraphic.

Im relation to his films, I found House of 1000 Corpses worse than Devils Rejects...personally.

Still rockin' ace films though...

As someone who enjoys gory movies, books and video games I can confidently say that fantasy and reality are two different things. Videos of real torture make me sick, yet I still love smashing zombie heads in Dead Rising

I agree with this post. Also agree that Devils Rejects is better than House of 1000 Corpses, the first one felt very much like a long music video interspersed with some weird scenes, with the second he knew what he was doing more and fully embraced the schlocky 70's horror thing.

Yeah I've never seen Devil's Rejects. I still have nightmares about House of 1000 Corpses.....lol. I'm not a fan of horror movies.

And hell yeah Goldberg! I used to love wrestling and he rocked it!
