Ambused at their homestead by Sheriff Wydell and a squad of armed men, the Firefly family awakens with guns blazing. Only Otis and Baby, his sister, manage to escape unharmed. Taking refuge and hostages in a back-road motel, the wanted siblings rendezvous with Captain Spaulding, their deranged partner in crime, killing whoever happens to stand in their way. As the body count mounts higher, Sheriff Wydell decides to take the law into his own hands and paves the way for one of the most depraved and terrifying showdowns.

The Devil's Rejects, Rob Zombie's follow up to his surprise hit House of 1000 Corpses, is one of the few horror sequels that manages to not only live up to the original, but it also manages to surpass it. Influenced by the classic exploitation/horror films of years past (Last House on the Left, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Zombie has given the Devil's Rejects a much grittier look than his last film, as the story picks up with the homicidal Firefly family on the run from the law. Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Otis (Bill Moseley), and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) are on the lam from a revenge driven and slightly deranged sheriff (William Forsythe) who plans to give the killers a taste of their own medicine. Along the way, the trio adds more to the body count, resulting in a climactic bloody showdown that is surprisingly well weaved. While it doesn't necessarily offer anything new to the horror genre, it doesn't try to, and the cast that Rob Zombie has assembled here does great work.

Musician (I use the term loosely) turned director Rob Zombie's sophomore feature is a depraved, brutal, and unrepentant bloodbath that pays homage to 1970s horror and exploitation movies. In its defense, many of those movies ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre," "Last House on the Left") were pretty sick too. It's perhaps a more faithful homage to the era than the Tarantino/Rodriguez "Grindhouse," as it looks cheap and grainy and has no redeeming values. Roger Corman vet Sid Haig, Zombie's wife Sheri Moon, and some other guy are a Manson-like family of killer who go on the lam, pursued by a merciless sheriff (William Forsythe, giving the best performance). It's not for everyone, it goes on too long, and the word subtle is not in Zombie's vocabulary. I mean, his last name is Zombie. There's very little original about it and the astute viewer will pick up bits of "Bonnie and Clyde," "Butch Cassidy," "Badlands," "Night of the Hunter," "Spider Baby," "Natural Born Killers," and about 100 half-forgotten b-pictures. I would advise eating before watching this.

good but not great as someone else said, it is brutally violent and disturbing, but not as weird or gross as 1,000 corpses, I liked this better. did love the soundtrack.

Good but not great, Rob Zombie's tale of twisted torturers on a trip is sick, savage and brutal all the way through. It's soundtrack comprised of southern rock goes with it perfectly.
