Monster in the washing machine

Talk about a shift in medium and audience: check out this new video that filmmaker/musician Rob Zombie made for Woolite that pulls from the “torture porn” films popular in the 2000s (and of course from the 70s, most obviously”Texas Chainsaw Massacre”). What’s interesting about this ad is that it pointedly references our cultural collective knowledge about recent horror film and the political implications torture entails. Now, thanks to Woolite and Zombie, monsters can now be found in your washing machine.
