    A yellow dog of a movie that delights in offending the offendable. It's also a whitesploitation classic, from its menacing sideburns to its demented laughter.

    The sadism of "1,000 Corpses" is ameliorated here by the addition of an action plot and open spaces, and the comedy is more skillfully played, mingling agreeably with Zombie's ardor for southern trash culture (the final showdown plays out to the strains of "Freebird," for heaven's sake)
  3. If you're not in the mood for "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" meets "Last House on the Left," stay very far away. Horror fans will find what they're looking for, though.
  4. Zombie doesn't pretend to be on the side of the victims. He makes no bones about his identification with the sexy outlaw serial killers.

    A little of this will go a long way.

    This film is lean, tight and irredeemably vile. People are gonna love it.

    I thought this was possibly one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen. Everything that comes out of the demented mind of Rob Zombie is pure genious. It had everything a horror/action movie should have. Guns, murder, sick twisted scenes of rape and sex, and just straight out bloody rage. I can't say that this movie is the best horror flick I have ever seen, but it ranks high. Zombie's other movie, House of 1,000 Corpses, was a good one too, but this one kept me on the edge of my seat unlike the predictable horror of it predecessor. Overall, I give it a 10. Go rent it, now. Expand

    I loved it in it's own sick and bloody way. But it's definetely not for everyone.

    This is a great movie. how many horror movies have actually had the ability to make you feel bad for the sick twisted degenerates at the end. I know the answer for me is 1, and its this movie. Plus for those that dont know, one of the whores that gets shot is the voice actor of Tommy Pickles from Rugrats... added bonus Expand

    Every scene appears to have been story-boarded.

    pros: pure horror fun; a humongeous leap from 'house of 100 corpses'; great blend of horror, actiaon, and boobs; excellent camera work
    cons: Iffy script, humor
    overview: A good, if not great, horror film. I expected it to be horrible because of '100 corpses' but this film really shutted my mouth up. Watch'll enjoy it.

    Although the storyline might be good, The Devils Rejects was not the worst movie I've ever seen, nor the best, it seems the movie never catches our attention, the movie haves its moments but it seems Rob Zombie has Gotten full of **** that he thinks the movie is great. The movie proves that the director has potential but seemed to lack on the story a little. I give this movie a 5/10 because its worth watching but needs a lot more going on in the film. Expand

    This is a film for idiots. Never before has one movie so astutely singled out the lowest common denominator from its demographic. It isn't funny, it isn't clever, its badly structured and the direction is indescribably hamfisted. A film this pointless and stupid will be forgotten soon enough, and deservedly so. I'm a huge, HUGE fan of both the horror genre, and its mid 1970's heyday. But, and this is very important, the films of that period were made by disillusioned intellectuals. not meatheaded, petulant antagonists who haven't got a clue about the artistry of the cinematic medium. Where is the subtext? Where are the genuine shocks? Where is the invention? This film is utterly, inarguably appalling. Anyone that doesn't agree, I'd wager, has problems when attempting to spell their own name. Expand
