    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.
  2. It plays like "Bonnie & Clyde" as made by a committee comprised of George Romero, Sam Peckinpah, Tobe Hooper, Sergio Leone and John Waters -- but Zombie still manages to inject a pervasive flavor all his own.
  3. A tough internal struggle must take place before one can come forward and admit enjoying The Devil's Rejects, a movie so fundamentally horrible that even its creator has to admit he's basically made a 101-minute snuff film.
  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.
  5. Surely, this bloodthirsty comic farce about a sadistic backwoods family being hunted by a sadistic backwoods sheriff is the "Citizen Kane" of hix-ploitation horror.
  6. 40
    Crass, vacuous exercise in grind-house stylistics.

    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.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.

    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. Expand

    This is a film for idiots. Never before has one movie so astutely singled out the lowest common denominator from its demographic. It 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
