  1. While this may all sound seductively warped to those who enjoy movies featuring sexually deviant confinement and torture, blasphemous rants and rampaging rednecks, The Devil's Rejects does not live up to its sick, twisted and campy intentions. "Straw Dogs" meets "Smokey And The Bandit" for the new millennium it ain't.

    By rubbing your nose in this hillbilly mayhem, Zombie all but dares you to acknowledge your liberal elitism, simply because just now, in Dubya's America, you don't happen to find anything particularly funny or lovable about stupid, dangerous provincials.
  3. The movie's signal flaw -- that is, other than its degeneracy, its sloppiness, its love of dark things and pretty stains and arterial spray patterns -- is Moseley as the demonic Otis.
  4. A pastiche of sadistic horror-movie cliches with minor traces of wit but major overflows of perversity.
  5. 12
    This is a vile and reprehensible motion picture.

    It's really just not very good, and it kind of drags. The characters are mostly unenjoyable, especially Baby, the young female Devil's Reject.It's really just not very good, and it kind of drags. The characters are mostly unenjoyable, especially Baby, the young female Devil's Reject. Does have some intense scenes and some funny parts as well, if you have the sense of humor for it. The only part I truly enjoyed was the soundtrack. Full Review »
