Sheri Moon Zombie,

The film originally had a subplot involving scenes with Dr. Satan. In an interview, Rob Zombie said that he cut these scenes because seeing Dr. Satan in this film would be like seeing Chewbacca in Bonnie and Clyde (1967). Zombie then went on to explain that all the Dr. Satan scenes would be restored in the "deleted scenes" section of the the DVD. See more »

The DVD release is altered to include "In Memory of Matthew McGrory" at the end of the film, just before the credits. The theatrical release did not include this, as Matthew McGrory was still alive. See more »
On May 18, 1978. The Ruggsville County police led by Sheriff John Quincy Wydell raided a run down farmhouse owned by the Firefly family (The Devil's Reject). After a deadly shootout, mother Firefly is captured, but Otis B. Driftwood (Bill Moseley) and Baby Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie) escape. They kidnap a group of singers. Then reunite with the crazy clown Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) for a final showdown with the cops.
Rob Zombie certainly has the style and the grotesque correct. He creates these utterly convincing low lifes of unimaginable depravity. Sid Haig is unforgettable in his clown makeup. This is more than the usual low budget slasher flick. This is B-movie heaven. This is certainly not a movie for everyone, but it's a great movie for those who love the genre.
