House of 1000 Corpses

The last surviving girl escapes from The Professor (the big guy with the axe) and crawls out of a hole in the ground that leads to the outside world. Captain Spaulding is driving down the road in his convertible, sees the girl, and picks her up. He says that there are a whole bunch of people looking for her and says that he'll take her to a doctor. She lays her head back and starts to fall asleep, but Otis rises out of the backseat. It then changes to a scene where the girl is back in the mental institution beinh operated on by Doctor Satan.


Continuity mistake: When Karen Black shoots the sheriff, she puts the gun up close to the side of his head and fires. We see blood shoot out of the opposite side of his head but the side she shoots him on has not a scratch.

Question: What I don't understand about this movie is, how did Dr. Satan get in this family's basement and are we supposed to believe that he did his brain surgery on the whole family which is why they are all so insane?

Jeanne Perrotta

Chosen answer: Dr. Satan wasn't in their basement. As you watch the movie, they walked quite a ways to this well structure where they put two of the captives in this box and lowered them down. It was quite a way from their house. When the girl comes up from the dirt, there house is nowhere in sight.
