Sheri Moon Zombie,
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
Five people are kidnapped on the days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped, they must play a violent game called 31 where the mission is to survive 12 hours against a gang of evil clowns.
In Ruggsville, Texas, the police under the command of Sheriff John Quincy Wydell attack the house of the sadistic serial killers Firefly family (a.k.a.

Otis and Baby call their patriarch, the mad clown Captain Spaulding and they schedule to reunite at an isolated motel in the desert.

That's what they all say "Fuck you", well it ain't gonna save you. It don't scare me none and it don't suddenly make you a fucking hero.

A sequel to the 2003 film House of 1000 Corpses, Rob Zombie's 'The Devil's Rejects' is Bad-Ass! A Brutal, Unforgiving, Gruesome Horror Flick that works in most parts.
'The Devil's Rejects' Synopsis: The murderous, backwoods Firefly family takes to the road to escape a vengeful police force which isn't afraid of being as ruthless as their target.
'The Devil's Rejects' is NOT meant for the faint-hearted. Its extremely dark, brutal & gruesome. But for those who enjoy violent films, 'The Devil Rejects' does deliver enough moments to earn itself a viewing. The characters are evil, their journey is unforgiving, but Rob Zombie's execution is well-done & appealing.
Performance-Wise: Sid Haig, Bill Moseley & Sheri Moon Zombie are repulsive, but effective. William Forsythe is superb as the brave sheriff. The Late Matthew McGrory is decent.
On the whole, 'The Devil's Rejects' is sadistic but fun.
