The film's script was constantly changing throughout filming, leading to an entirely different ending at one point. Originally Grandpa Hugo was going to be revealed as the mad doctor (who in the rough cut was not even called Dr. Satan). See more »
When Mother Firefly pulls the pistol on Lt. Wydell the revolver seems very large, and the hammer has been cocked back. When she fires, the hammer is already down and does not drop. The gun also appears to be a different, smaller weapon when the scene cuts to Wydell being struck and killed. See more »

Hard to dislike tribute/ripoff of 70s scare flicks, but unpleasant overall.
Definitely a combination tribute and ripoff of both Texas Chainsaw and Hills Have Eyes with a little bit of Warlock Moon and Don't look in the Basement thrown in, and as such it is hard to really either like or dislike this film. It's all been seen before, there's nothing really original here, and it ends up being too much of a mishmash and just too much going on overall. There's one very important element left out here, and that is the one of the protagonist who's gone over the edge and become a mentally battle-scarred nemesis of those seeking to destroy. Zombie changed this somewhat in the sequel with the twisted lawman Wydell seeking vengeance for his brother's murder. In fact, this is one of those rare instances where the sequel, Devil's Rejects, is much better than the first.
