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 »

Goofs

Officer Ray Dobson: Sir, you think we're gonna die here today?
Sheriff John Wydell: Dyin's not an option. Now, you stick that back in that gray matter of yours and you make that stick. 'Cause any other thought is gonna get you cold slabed, toe taged, and mailed home to your mamma in a plastic bag. Are we crystal?
Officer Ray Dobson: Crystal, Sir.

great B-movie characters
6 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

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.
