Dont think much just watch it Go Go Go !!
Wow, I can't believe I made it though that movie without turning it off. I give this a 1/5 because it's 90% sexuality/porn, 9% swearing, and 1% horror. Movies like this are just bad. When the sexuality or nudity outweighs the horror, then it's no longer a horror movie; It's a porno. I can't believe people love this movie. It's so crude and the acting isn't even good.
When watching this movie, I couldn't stop thinking about how grateful I am that I'm not from the south. All the swearing, accents, and incompetence would drive me bonkers.
I'm unsure what I think of this movie. It's nearly 2 hours long yet it feels like barely anything happens in it. It's alright for a first time watch but nothing I'd ever really care to see again.
Awesome! 9/10
i love this movie so much! i cannot wait to see 31! :D
This is something horror fans will love
Sheri Moon Zombie can kill me any day =)
truly twisted on all levels,well scripted and acted ,the ending was awesome
I just got back from seeing a screening of The Devil's Rejects. The audience was told that this is the first screening of the film in the United States. So, I have to wonder: has this film been screened outside of the United States? Anyway, let's not get too far off into the peripheral.



What did I think of the movie? Well, that's what it comes down to, isn't it? Did I like the movie? Yes, I liked the movie. More than likely, though, this film will be tweaked before its release. Here's my initial and "brief" response to the movie.



As you may know, The Devil's Rejects is a sequel to House Of 1,000 Corpses. The sequel has a different feel than the original -- entirely different. It picks up from where the last one ended. Three of the members of the Firefly family - Captain Spalding (Sid Haig), Otis (Bill Mosely), and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) - escape police and an ambush to proceed on a murderous spree as they seek to elude pursuing police and bounty hunters.



Is this a horror movie? Well, not really. But it's definitely horrific. It's visceral, bloody, irreverent, and disturbing. It's filled with blood, bullets, murder, and mayhem. Without a doubt, this film has some deeply horrific elements, but plays more like an ultra-violent western/crime drama/revenge movie. It's an intriguing fusion of cinematic elements, to say the least.



This is not high art, folks. Pop art? Yeah, that's a little more like it. It's a macabre and subversive piece of filmmaking. Take the Manson Family, add a few relatives from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, make them the protagonists, have it take place under the desert sun, add lots of bullets, blood, bodies, four letter words, dark humor, murder, and mayhem, and you may have an idea of what to expect.



The first fourth of the movie was hit and miss for me. There are lulls here and there, but all in all, I liked the movie. I was put off by the first forth or so because I was expecting something more along the lines of a horror film. With the exception of the film's opening shootout, I would have liked for things to get rolling at a brisker pace. But once the three protagonists finally come together at the local Motel, the movie kicks into gear, with only a minor lull here and there. The sequence at the local Motel is a highlight of the film, and will more than likely have you drop your jaw.



The acting works for the given material. There are also a couple of loose ends that could use some resolve. But hey, this is not Merchant Ivory, folks.



The film appears to admire its psychotic "protagonists." In the film's climatic shootout, over Skynyrd's "Free Bird," our protagonists take on mythic proportions. The "protagonists" appear to be a subversive (and perhaps even abstract) symbol of freedom, revolution, and individuality, as well as of societal failure, irreverence, and hostility. Perhaps there's a part of us that wants to be like the Firefly family, to roam freely like a wild vagabond, taking what is desired without conscience, spitting on everything sacred, and taking pleasure in the suffering of others, or in the suffering of those who oppress us.



I overheard a viewer express that the film wasn't scary. I overheard a few persons express that it wasn't a horror film. And I thought, wow, what was just up on the screen was horrific. I saw horror on the screen and I was hearing "not scary" and "not a horror movie." I could not help but think "what a desensitized group of folks." And finally, I heard a viewer express, "it was sexy."



Not quite what I expected in a sequel to House Of 1,000 Corpses, but its an interesting piece of "pop art," or perhaps "pop cinema." I liked the movie -- being of a depraved and reprobate mind -- but thought it could be tighter and have less lulls here and there. So, if you're looking for a deliciously depraved good time, you may find yourself digging this.
