hall of fame porn actress Ginger Lynn is in this one, taking a long horsey ride on a clown. a sexy disc or two, highlighted by the lack of sentimental delusions as played by these characters: dog eat dog, indeed. that can be a relief of a sort, when swimming in the frothy environment of culturally conditioned maya is all you've ever known......

The sequel to House of a 1000 Corpses is different in tone and approach. The three surviving killers from the previous film are center-stage here, and while the film is darker and more stripped-down from it's predecessor, The Devil's Rejects is a far bloodier and bleaker ride. There are still some fun moments but Zombie's new direction makes for more a serious film.
I prefer the genre-homages of House of a 1000 Corpses over this film. It's just a lot more fun. However, the story in this film is still entertaining.

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.
