28/12/2011: The Devil's Rejects [2005]

Once again I watched another of the controversial Rob Zombie's horror movies. I must say while his remakes may be questionable his original ideas are interesting. The Devil's Rejects is the sequel to House of 1000 Corpses (bonus points for no cheesy 2000 corpses style name), and continue the story of the Firefly family. The Devil's Reject is a brutal, gory, bloody horror movie along the lines of your standard Rob Zombie flick.
The storyline is simple, a family of serial killers on the run as they shoot up the county in an attempt to escape the police. I found this disappointing in comparison to the strange supernaturalish elements in the first movie. Particularly that all scenes pertaining to Dr. Satan were cut (DVD deleted scenes I want to watch).
Overall while The Devil's Reject is one hell of a bloodbath and follows the proper formula, it does not capture the same image as House of 1000 Corpses, and that is its main fault.
