    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.

    Zombie has done it again and gives us another solid horror film that is well worth watching. While its not as great as the first film, It does give the Firefly family a solid send off. Expand

    Robert Cummings, better known as Rob Zombie, isn't exactly a very good director. If you've seen "House of 1000 corpses" you've probably realized that this movie is extremely chaotically written and directed. There's no straight line or anything like that to be found in the movie. To be clear, this isn't exactly always a bad thing. But for some reason, in House of 1000 corpses it just didn't work for me. In it's sequel, "The Devil's Rejects", you'll find something which feels way more like a movie that's actually finished. Rob Zombie has a twisted mind. I'm a fan of the guy's music so that made me wondering what kind of movies he would make. Well, kind of exactly what I expected. Pretty sick and twisted. Good. I love the cast in the first place, including his beautiful wife Cherri-moon Zombie, who practically plays in all his movies. You'll follow a psychotic, sick minded family on a road rampage, actually it's nothing more than that. Which is fine in this case. It's everything this movie needs. It starts off with some cops and a sheriff surrounding the house where the family is in which ends up in a massive shoot-out. From there on it's nothing more than a bloody and sick road trip. Don't expect a deep story line or outstanding dialogues. You will not enjoy this movie if you do that. If you expect a pretty mindless, blood packed rollercoaster ride with even some family drama, you'll probably love it. There even is a chance that, like me, you'll actually somehow gonna feel sorry for one of the most psychotic families in movie history. Hell yeah, Rob Zombie! Expand

    No where near as good as the first film imo. Solid performances by the cast and it is interesting to watch. However, The ending completely sucked imo.

    The film has a good direction, is charismatic, is well developed, has good characters, and at times has a huge personality, but the biggest problem here is that it only excites at the last 20 minutes. Expand

    Rob Zombie's follow-up to the House of 1000 Corpses.
    A lot more brutal than the first film & it seems they had a bigger budget as the gore is
    a lot better.
    Bill Moseley is superb, portraying the quite disturbingly sick Otis & Sheri Moon is a lot more convincing this time.
    A bit hit & miss overall but the soundtrack is very well used &, although the Freebird scene is a little cliche, thought it worked well.

    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
