After the hype surrounding “House Of 1000 Corpses” fans were curious to see what happened to the insane characters Zombie gave us.
Fans didn’t have to wait long, just 2 years later in 2005 Rob Zombie unleashed this sequel to his directorial debut and it was definitely a great throwback.
The film originally had a subplot involving ‘Dr. Satan’. In an interview, Zombie said that he cut these scenes because seeing ‘Dr. Satan’ in this film would be like seeing ‘Chewbacca’ in “Bonnie & Clyde” (1967). It’s a shame as he was a great character.
‘The Firefly Family’ have gone down in the history books of Horror as one of the most disturbing families in film, it’s just a shame Karen Black didn’t return to her role of ‘Mother Firefly‘ but Leslie Easterbrook did a great job of filling in for her.
This film also features one of my all time favourite endings, I won’t ruin it for those of you who have yet to see this flick but those who have know exactly what I mean. It was so perfect and fitting for the film’s tone, it never gets old.
“The Devil’s Rejects” has most certainly earned cult status over the years and deservedly so, I thoroughly enjoy it everytime I watch it.
