Sheri Moon Zombie,
Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned, Hell-like compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns.
Jeff Daniel Phillips
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. The Devil's Reject) and they arrest mother Firefly, but Otis B. Driftwood and Baby Firefly escape from the siege. Tiny is wandering nearby the house and also escapes. Otis and Baby call their patriarch, the mad clown Captain Spaulding and they schedule to reunite at an isolated motel in the desert. When Otis and Baby arrive, they kidnap two families of singers, using sadism and violence against the harmless persons. Meanwhile, Sheriff Wydell promises to capture and kill the runaways, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, the Deputy George Wydell. Written by

When storming the Firefly house, Sheriff Wydell is loading a Remington 1100 shotgun (a semiautomatic), but when he is shown from behind firing upon the house he is clearly using a Remington 870 (a pump action shotgun). See more »

I went to this movie having seen 1000 Corpses which I thought was a great retro B style horror in the Texas Chainsaw massacre genre.
This movie FAR exceeded any expectation I had. Zombie NAILED it in this one. Classic Freeze frames, awesome soundtrack(used with purpose)-Just enough gore with out going over the top.. the essential random nudity shots that we B fans have come to expect. Suspenseful through-out.
I realize that what makes all of these components work:
A- This movie (Unlike 99% of all B Horros) is not predictable. You do not know what is going to happen next.
B- Zombie builds characters. You learn history and connections, and see things from their view.
C- Slight comedic aspect added.
Summary: MUST SEE, MUST OWN
in the words of my horror loving awe-struck friend "This is hands down the best B horror I have ever seen!"
