Trivia

The shoot out at the beginning of the film is very reminiscent of Australian bush-ranger Ned Kelly and his gang's last stand at Glenrowan. The armor, and the scene's presentation, are very similar to other film representations of Ned Kelly's tragic final defense. See more »

It can't get much better...
14 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, I loved "House of 1000 Corpses". I loved it for completely different reasons than I loved "The Devils Rejects". The mood in the first one is far more campy, almost cartoonish. The actual fear and horror mixed with that weird wink is perfect. "The Devils Rejects" on the other hand seems almost real. These people are out there...these people do not care about you or your children. Hell, they don't even care about your dog or furniture. The music, the angles, the complete disregard for the feelings of others. Blantant hedonism at it's best. Some folks walked out...I sat singing "Free Bird" till the screen went black. If it's for you, don't miss it. If you believe you are the least bit squeamish...go get that new direct to DVD Stitch movie!
