The Devil's Rejects Review

When the police raid the house of the Firefly family, they have already hightailed it, and set off on a cross country killing spree. Heading for Captain Spalding's half brother Charlie Altamont, they are pursued by an obessed bounty hunter.


Given that writer-director Rob Zombie (who should call himself something sensible like Robert Zombie if he wants any respect) is a rock musician, it’s no surprise that his second film is less a sequel to his first, House Of 1000 Corpses, than a cover version performed in a different style. That was schlocky carnival horror, but this is a gruesome road movie about a serial-killer family (clown Sid Haig, Manson-look Bill Moseley and cutie-pie Mrs Zombie) on the run, being nasty to everyone they meet.

A nasty, sticky exploitation flick from Mr. Zombie.
