Directors : Sean Ellis 

Cashback 2006 is a romance/comedy movie that contains artistic elements in a British style directed by Sean Ellis, The movie directed by Sean Ellis deserves thumbs up because initially this movie was only exhibited at an art exhibition in 2004 as a short film, Then Sean also developed the short movie he made into a 1hr42-minute film by combining the British style and artistic elements that we can understand if  We understand more deeply about the delivery of this movie.

At first, at first glance, this movie was a biography because the storytelling style in this movie was divided into 2 directions, namely Present time and past time which focused on the life process of Ben Willis (the main character). But it turns out that this is all the result of a thought written by Sean Ellis himself. From the visual concept and also the storyline in this movie, it is very exciting because it smells - an artistic smell that is combined with comedy-romance so that it creates a taste like watching a semi-biographical movie.

3 cult classic movies called 'The Firefly Film Series - Well, this time we are back again with one of stoneeman's mainstay topics,  namely discussing and reviewing 3 cult classic movies called 'The Firefly Film Series' which became so popular and thick with adoration of the 3 main characters in this film who played their roles gloriously.


These 3 characters are Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley), These three fictional characters played by 3 actors will make this film more terrible because of the sensation, tension and typical psycho of these 3- people will stick to us audience if we watch the trilogy series worked on by Director Rob Zombie.


If you are  someone who  really adores cult classic horror, these 3 horror series films by  Rob Zombie  are the  best choice of stoneeman for you.   Because these three films  have become the most puja horror legends  by  cult classic movie fans, and not only that because this  horror is combined by  black comedy elements, this film  is very suitable for watch at  midnight, even the three series  of films that are classified as one of  the legendary Cult classic midnight movies to    date.


Robert Bartleh Cummings or commonly called by his stage name Rob Zombie, It is necessary to know that this Director is also a musician and a vocalist of a heavy metal band called White Zombie, Well of course from the background of the narrative designer of these 3 (three) legendary films alone we can know he is a perfectionist in working on the terrible trilogy that is given the nickname the firefly film series.



Rob Zombie this multifunctional director, in my opinion, is already very thick with classic horror elements that he has, starting from stage dressing up, Property, Album, Album Cover, even the music genre contains elements of dark music heavy metal (Satanic).


And what's more, these three movie series do contain elements of black comedy combined with psychological horror.



-  House Of 1000 Corpses 2003


Director : Rob Zombie 


House Of 1000 Corpses (2003) the first series directed by Rob Zombie is quite impressive and seems like a classic slash horror film in the 70s. In this first series, we will be introduced to a psychotic family that becomes an urban legend in a mountainous area whose location is unknown.


This film was made  with the concept of Slash horror and wild narrative and also  nasty which made this film into the category of Cult classic movies  , due to the impact of fans who liked the presentation of weird and nasty movies that were packaged like 70s movies.


Synopsis :


-  House Of 1000 Corpses 2003

3 The Best From Rob Zombie Movies | His Called The Firefly Trilogy
Should we Call Great Firefly Family ?


The main plot of  the film  centers on a  group of teenagers who are kidnapped & tortured by  a psychotic family When Halloween is going on.   The narrative concept  in this film  is  very well designed  by Rob, the visuals & properties  in this film  are also made like a Halloween movie  and combined with elements  of  suspense and  visual effects in Use is also classified as Midnight Movies.



- The Devil’s Rejects 2005


Directors : Rob Zombie 


The Devil's  Rejects  2005 is the second sequel  to the 'House of 1000 Corpses' which is part of the  'Firefly film series'. In the second sequel  written  and also worked on by Rob Zombie, it  was a bit wild from the first film.


Because the devil's   rejects  is a sequel to the 'firefly film series' which still tells about the  antagonist family  in the first film  , House of 1000 Corpses, but in this second  sequel  the narrative  is made a little different against the three Characters who  were originally  psychotic antagonists become evil protagonists  who begin to be haunted by  police pursuits   for murders/crimes they committed.


The main plot  of this film  tells the story of an  escape from a psychotic  family (firefly family) who begins to be haunted by   the   police chase for the murders/crimes they  committed in the previous film    , It sounds like a very simple plot & easy for the  audience to follow if you watch the  movie  from the first series.

- The Devil’s Rejects 2005
Three Lucky Bastards

 What makes the devil's rejects  even more exciting to enjoy is that  Rob Zombie always inserts unexpected plots   from these three characters, where  in  this second sequel  these three characters   should be  had  approached his death as they had fallen into  police  traps several times  and almost always  died,  but the three of them  always   had  good luck/congratulations  From the  trap it seemed as if the devil was on  their side. It can be said that these three core  characters are The Lucky Bastard who became a  legend in the third sequel  later.


- 3 From Hell 2019

 'Spesial Performing from the old ghost'

3 From Hell 2019, Well in this sequel we  can see a  slight change accompanied by a new face that  we will  encounter in the third sequel  which  has received a lot of  good responses from fans &  film critics. 


In  this third sequel  we can see Back  the psychotic crazy action performed by Baby  (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis B Driftwood (Bill Moseley), Winslow Foxworth (Richard Brake), And  sorry  we can't  find 'captain Spaulding   the amazing ( Sid Haig )' k arena he has met his death When the film   premiered  on September 16,2019.


The Legend Has Returned,- 3 From Hell 2019
The Legend Has Returned


The main plot  in the third film  is quite surprising because the  three characters who should have been declared  dead due to the  impact of  hundreds of bullets that penetrated their bodies, and it turns out that Rob zombie made a plot  Another  unexpected surprise for these three characters.  It seems that Rob Zombie really loves these  three characters because  they have become urban legends  in  America because his appearance  in the second sequel  makes the audience ask if there will be  a  replacement role in the third sequel  because the  ending of the second sequel  should be the three characters, namely Spaulding, Baby & Otis, have been confirmed to have died.

Firefly Trilogy, which was worked on by Rob Zombie, is a  film that is very difficult to guess the  plot if you watch it for   the first time, it is not an ordinary thing  for a Director like rob zombie in  working on  A  very dark movie like the Firefly Trilogy, which in fact he is a former lead vocal of the heavy metal  band White Zombie.  Plus some of the movie breaks  that were worked on by rob zombies such as The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2, 31 which penetrated into a  cult classic movie horror  group that has a unique signature in  this modern era.

Although indeed this firefly trilogy  is supported by the big label   Lionsgate Company which  in fact accommodates a lot of commercial horror films  with a fairly large budget, But put that aside because  for me Rob Zombie   himself is    a multi-talented person with a distinctive that does not escape sadistic &  satanic things.
