The Devil's Rejects is the sequel to Rob Zombie's House of 1000 Corpses and is far superior in so many ways. I found the first film too bizarre and out there with a few good jokes thrown in. However the sequel has a decent storyline, far better acting and an absolutely excellent soundtrack. The way the film is shot coupled with the music gives a very authentic 70's feel to the film.

It's about a family of...well sick pychos I suppose, (Otis, Baby, Spaulding, Tiny and Madame Firefly) who are on the run from the police and will do anything to get away from them. Sherrif Wydell is on their tail wanting revenge after they killed his brother in the previous film. Wydell loses the plot somewhat, almost to the point that has you rooting for the bad guys. There is a dark humour running throughout with some good gags for all but even with some darker sadistic violence but it has all been put together in such a way that it works.

There are some great cameos from Danny Trejo, Ken Foree and Michael Berryman for the horror nerds and an excellent finale timed perfectly to Skynyrd's Freebird, absolute genius.

This is one of my favouite films and whilst there are violent scenes, this is more a film to make you feel uncomfortable rather than scared, done in a similar vein to The Last House on the Left.

This is the film that showed that Rob Zombie could have become a legend as a horror film director - before throwing away that reputation with a couple of insipid Halloween remakes.

His first film, House of a 100 Corpses is a fun throwaway movie, but The Devil's Rejects, which picks up with characters from his debut film, it a tour de force of trash horror which deserves a lasting place in horror history.

With many a quotable line of dialogue, some fantastic music (you'll never listen to Freebird by Lynard Skynard in the same way again after seeing this film) and some truly demented and horrific imagery (witness the girl running out of the motel wearing the face of one of her friends before being run over by a passing truck!), The Devil's Rejects is one of the very best horror films of the 21st Century.

The blu-ray is packed with phenomenal extras, including an fantastic two and half hour making of, as well as bloopers, interviews, and much much more. Treat yourself to a Tutti Frutti!

very interesting film indeed.. miles better than zombie's first offering "house of 1000 corpes" that starts good but kind of becomes a joke eventually.. his first film did show glimpses of his talent, but ended up as a self-indulgent, overly bizzare horror piece that made little sense.. on the other hand this one is very well structured, has no holes in the plot and has a focused simple story that has a grittier edge but doesnt get ruined from too many weird visuals and uneeded nastiness and gore.. also it easily stands on its own and can be watched without seeing the house of 1000 c first..
Many of the reviewers here talk about how brutal, disturbing and nasty this film is but i totally disagree.. Its nowhere close to other recent offerings like the saw trilogy, hostel, hills hv eyes, even the new texas chainsaw etc..
unpleasant and dark yes but def not gory or gross as some here claim. i am not even sure it can be classified as horror...
great characters even if mainly one dimensional, especially great camera work- not overdone as in his first film, clever cutting/editing and most of all not just great, but superb 70s soundrack that makes this film a bit more special than what it really is..
the combo of the ending with the classic lynyrd skynyrd song played is i think genious...
not 5 stars cause at the end of the day there is not much depth, but other than that just great........

First of all let me point out that although Devil's Rejects is technically a sequel to 1000 Corpses, Rejects can be viewed on it's own without having seen 1000 Corpses. When I saw 1000 Corpses I wasn't that impressed overall. It made little sense and wasn't very entertaining. I did however like Zombie's style, or at least the style he was aiming for. For this reason, and due to a positive review from Rodger Ebert, I bought this DVD. It's clear from the very start of this movie that Zombie has looked at 1000 Corpses objectively and tried not to retread the same mistakes with Rejects. His style is intact, but now it's clearer and in better context. There is a very clear advancement in Zombie's talents between 1000 Corpses and Rejects. The gritty look from 1000 Corpses is here but without the confusing camera movements and weird visuals. The script is much better, acheiving both humour and disturbing brutality often at the same time. Captain Spalding hilariously comandeering a woman's car is one of my favourite moments in the movie. The acting is good with not a single hint of overacting. The soundtrack is fantastic and a real stand out aspect of this movie. Zombie even throws in the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd song Free Bird. I recommend everyone to give this film a go.

While Rob Zombie's debut, 'The House Of 1000 Corpses', was an instant horror classic, I have to admit to finding his second film is a little disappointing. While Zombie really seems to have found his own unique style as a director, especially some very clever cinematography which slows scenes of real action down to mere snapshots set to music, which in turn makes the action seem more intense; the overall the story is weak, unfocused and a little disjoined. And whereas 'The House Of 1000 Corpses' was a brilliant homage to the 'gridhouse' genre of the 70's horror films, 'The Devils Rejects' is more of a violent revenge thriller basically continuing where the last film ended, with the majority of the story dominated by three members of the 'Firefly' family on the run from the local sheriff. Overall, it's a pretty decent film, not as good as its predecessor, but still head and shoulders above other horror thrillers of recent times.

Rob Zombie's sequel to House of 1000 Corpses sees him not just surpass what in my opinion was a mess of a film but make a genuinely great film that has the power to both disgust and engage the viewer in the dark and dreary world that Zombie creates. Visually the film looks great and makes the film feel like a cross between a western and a horror movie. I also thought the performances were strong, in particular brilliant was Bill Moseley who I genuinely could not take my eyes off in certain scenes as he gave such a frightening performance.

Overall, though I don't agree with everything the film does, I can't deny the raw power this film holds, much like The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre the film immerses you in a world you don't want to be in but can't stop watching. And it all concludes with one hell of an ending.

If violent horror is not your bag, forget this. Some of the scenes are painfully graphic, but Zombie has excelled here where with House Of A Thousand Corpses, he was treading water in comparison.

There are faults - let's be clear - as the continuity between this and the aforementioned prequel HOATC, doesn't totally add up. But that said, one wouldn't really need to watch HOATC to get total enjoyment from this movie. Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Sherri Moon and William Forsythe each pack a powerful performance which adds real class to what is a clever mix of horror, western and road movie.

Special mention for the movie soundtrack, which absolutely rocks and fits the film perfectly. 'Midnight Rider' - The Allman Brothers Band, 'Fooled Around and Fell in Love' - Elvin Bishop, 'I Can't Quit You Baby' - Otis Rush and 'Rocky Mountain Way' - Joe Walsh are all super tracks which get accompany this great movie, but dare I say it, the best is saved until the final sequence in the movie. Panoramic shots of arid, rocky-sided roads, you feel as if you're flying above the final scene about to be played out, then you swoop down to live it and breathe it with the cast; there can only be one outcome - it's obvious - but for a moment, belief is suspended while the wonderful sound of 'Free Bird' - Lynyrd Skynyrd, unfolds from the speakers and the final battle commences.

It's excessive, it's extreme, it's unbelievable, yet it remains one of the best movies of its kind I've ever had the pleasure to watch. It took me by surprise the first time I watched it (I was expecting HOATC Part 2) and it continues to surprise me each time I watch. Zombie's masterpiece. 5 Stars.

"The Devil's Rejects" is the sequel to Rod Zombie's "House Of 1,000 Corpses" and to appreciate it you'd certainly need to see its predecessor. The Devil's Rejects is the story of the psychopathic Firefly and their flight from the law as the police net begins to close in on them.
The Firefly family are a kind of twisted, tripping version of the Angel family in the old Judge Dredd comics. In 'House' they waylaid travellers into their home for an evening of wild entertainment, usually ending in the bizarre ritualistic mutilation and torture of their guests. In "Rejects" however, they aren't quite so perverse in their actions, being upstaged by the equally psychopathic cop who is tracking them down.
It is possibly because of this that in "Rejects", despite the Firefly family being perverse necrophiliac homicidal maniacs, I actually found myself rooting for them. By the end of the film, in fact, I was somewhat horrified to find myself on their side. Credit has to go to Zombie & Co for being able to make an audience sympathise with such characters!
One minor disappointment was the loss of the "surreal" edge that was found in "House", being replaced by a more straightforward sadism (if that's not too much of an oxymoron). This 'dumbed down' "Rejects" slightly for me. "House" and "Rejects" have never been your standard slasher fare, and whilst more disturbing they're also more intelligent and fascinating which is why I feel so justified in liking them so much :-)
The characterisations of the dsyfunctional, immature and irrational psychopath family are as always excellent with Sheri Moon Zombie shining as the utterly irresistable but deeply disturbed sadistic seductress "Baby".
In summary, "Rejects" is a fast-moving feast of sex, mayhem and violence with some blinding blues music as the score which builds up into a sweeping "high noon" style climax. I truly hope there will be more to follow.

this is one of the best sequals of all time! not only does it equal rob zombies first film house of a 1000 corpse's but surpass'es it in every way possible. this film grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go till the end credits, however this film might not be to every one's taste but if you like your films with vilolence, gore, bad language and lots of dark humor than this is your film. picking up about four months after the fisrt film house of a 1000 corpse's, the film follows the exploits of the firefly family, after a fantastic shoot out a the start of the film 'Rob Zombie' takes you on a rollercoaster of a ride. the film focus's on the characters Otis, Baby and everyones favorite Captain Spaudlin (played brilliantly by Sid Haig), unlike the first film the script is alot sharper the acting is fantastic. what this film manages to do so well is to gain the audiences sympathy for the firefly family that was never felt for in the first movie, this film is about the role reversal that the family take from been the inflicters of pain to the recivers of it from sheriff wydell, avenging his brothers death from the first film. with both their paths heading for a collision course that ends in one of the most depraved and terrifying shodowns ever committed to a feature film.
So go and buy or rent this film, because as mentioned the acting is great the script is tight and sharp and another great advantage this film has got is that Rob Zombie didn't use any heavy metal for the music instead using some classic 70's music that fits the film so well, including one of the best endings a film has ever had.
for any one who thinks their hard enough this film will creep you out especially the motel sceen half way through the film. enjoy.

The Texas State Police are making a full-scale attack against the murderous Firefly family residence for murders and disappearances of the past several years.

But three of the family escape, including Otis, Baby Firefly and Baby's father Captain Spaulding. The trio go on a road trip, leaving dozens of bodies in their wake.

Evading a Texas Rangers squad, as well as a group of bounty hunters led by Ken Dwyer, who's obsessed with finding the deadly killers, the surviving Firefly clan gather at a run- down amusement park owned by Captain Spaulding's half-brother.

He offers them shelter and a new base of operations for their killing spree as Sheriff Dwyer, the Texas Rangers, the FBI and bounty hunters slowly close in......

It's a marmite movie of the highest order, you either going to love it, or hate it, depending on your love for the auteur. While many will strongly disagree, I think Zombie has evolved the horror films in a strange way.

While the foundations of his narrative are still rather simplistic, his visions are stark are visceral, and his characterisations are insane. Every character in his film has some sort of strange trait that on any normal day would appear odd, but for his narrative,suit the film perfectly.

A sequel of sorts to House of a 1000 Corpses, the film is very reminiscent of Cravens 'Last House on the left', as behind its very macabre, surreal visage, is a hazy, almost psychedelic feel to it, with a little bit of steampunk thrown in for good measure.

The cast are wonderful, he film has an unsettling mood throughout, which is always present in Zombie films, and just when you think things couldn't get any more twisted, they do..

In Zombies world, no one is innocent, every character has a dark side, and the Firefly family are there to bring it out that bit more.

Not for everyone, but it's a remarkable experience.
