The Devil's Rejects is the sequel to Rob Zombie's feature length debut House of 1,000 Corpses. The local law enforcement officers have surrounded the family compound. They have followed all of the clues and it points to them. Mother Firefly, Baby, Otis, Tiny and Rufus shoot it out with the police. In the ensuing fire fight, Otis and Baby flee the scene. Baby contacts Captain Spaulding and tells them that they need to hide from the police. Can the Fireflys and Captain Spaulding evade the authorities? How will they deal with the sheriff who has a mean streak and a grudge to match? Is this movie even better than House of 1,000 Corpses? You'll have to check it for yourselves!

Rob Zombie improves highly over his first effort. He continues his homage to the seventies cinema with the slasher/revenge genre as well as southern horror. The cast is filled with many under used and talented "B-Movie" actors. As the film progresses we learn a lot about Baby, Otis and Captain Spaulding. A side that they wish they could live but can't. William Forsythe co-stars as the mean hardboiled southern fried sheriff who'll stop at nothing to nab the murderous trio. He wants to show them "family justice". If you like twisted horror films and are fans of Tobe Hooper and older Wes Craven films then you'll dig this one. A lot of familiar faces and surprises can be found in this one.

*** out of ****     Ah, violence. Don't we all just love it? Well, we must considering how many violent films come out each year. After all; if we don't love violence, then nobody loves getting a big fat paycheck for making a film featuring any. It's hard to come across a filmmaker who uses violence in a particularly good way, since honestly, how good can violence get? Violence, in reality, is a terrible thing. In film, however, it can be put to good use. I find it quite shocking …

The Devil's Work
Cast all your impure thoughts aside & go pick up a copy of Disney's Bambi if this isn't your cup of blood. Rob Zombie had unleashed his greatest endeavor upon us back in the summer of 2005. Those who chose to just sit this one out had no idea what they were missing. Zombie showed us that he could hang with the big dogs such as Tarantino or Rodriguez with the witty one-liners, cuckoo characters, & over the top violence.      For fans of harcore action or true …

Once again, this, probably one of the sickest, most twisted and unpleasant films I've ever seen. From both a graphic and subliminal point of view it's a bit of a wonder how it got a rating actually. From the off-set the title lets you know what kind of film it's going to be (Rob Zombie probably thought it sounded cool). I thought that this movie had some good cinematography and a dusty washed out feel that has been done before but still lends the right atmosphere for this kind of violent horror.  I …
