Watched The Devils Rejects yesterday. I knew nothing about the film, other than it was written and directed by Rob Zombie. I knew nothing about the film it was a sequel to either, House of 1000 Corpses. I was actually for some reason expecting it to be a bit of an indy art film, so I was in for a bit of a shock. The Devils Rejects is the term the press use in the film for a family of murderous rednecks, who kidnapped and murdered 70 or so people. The film starts as the family's house is being raided in an attempt to catch them. I won't give any more of the story away, in case anyone else decides to watch it. Suffice to say it was excellent in some ways. It felt like it was made in the 70s, and really captured the atmosphere of other films such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Deliverance. Of course being in that 70s style, and also with the recent resurgence of that style, again such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Cabin Fever, it's extremely gory and generally horrific. So not recommended for the sensitive. I have to say as much as I used to love these films as a teenager, they don't appeal so much now (a good sign I guess?). 4/5
