    Such a sick film anf yet it’s so great.

    Haven’t seen this one and House of 1000 Corpses, but I did see Zombie’s two Halloween movies which I feel is horror’s guiltiest pleasures!

    In 2009, we did get not one but two different horror films that broke the mold of crappy horror films and made horror great again. I’m of course talking about Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell and last Halloween’s Paranormal Activity. Maybe for the next Monster Madness, it would be a nice way to cap it by talking about those movies!

    i agree tht devils rejects is far better than house of of 1000 corpses but i wont go to say i dont like house of 1000 corpses its a very good movie on its own but when you compair it to devils rejects tht just not fair haha i also wanted to ask if anyone else felt like the end was a bit similar to the shinings end
    fire ax
    screaming *shrugs*
    when i was watching it my mom walked in during the maid finding the body and then geting hased to the highway xD she was like “how do you watch this” and i was like “with popcorn”

    I like House of 100 Corpses but Devils Rejects is even more amazing.

    Like you said – they did horrible Things to People but when the Sherrif acutally caught them you see that he isnt the Good Guy in this Movie.

    It’s funny that the names of the characters come from different Groucho-Marx-roles. Someone was a fan, I guess :>

  • June 7, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    Two ideas for future Monster Madness reviews, Dog Soldiers and Pumpkinhead. just a thought

    Dude, you gotta do Trick or Treat. A horror movie for metalheads? Gene Simmons as a radio DJ? The Prince of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne himself as an anti-rock n roll evangelist? A devil-worshipping rock star resurrected by playing his last recording backwards? Yes. Just fucking yes.

    Shit, this film is wierd, I wouldn’t wanna watch this. I think the Sheriff is still the herp, despite his psychotic breakdown at the end.

    Also, for future Monster Madnesses, could you review Pumpkinhead, the Blob, Dog Soldiers, all the Michael Bay remakes of horror films (just to see your opinions) and some Stephen King films like Carrie, It, Christine and Cujo.

    Also James, could you review the Predator movies (even though their more action than horror) and the Invisible Ray with Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi.

  • July 25, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    First, I love this movie. One of my favorite movies ever. Second, regarding this decade, you missed High Tension and The Descent. High Tension is about two young women travelling through Europe, at the beginning. The Descent is like Aliens underground.

    Cannot wait to see next year’s madness.

    Hi James im KaneInsane, I love your AVGN Videos and Horror reviews. I have two horror films for you to review if you choose to 1. Terror Toons and 2. The Last House on The Left. You rock and I respect all that you do keep up the good work buddy.

    This is a great movie, we need more writers and directors that are out to make movies that are original and artistic. This is a very unique movie in that it really shows you these horrible serial killers in a way that seems normal and, I mean you really become to like these characters even though you see the horrible shit they do, and in the end you really feel for them as they’re getting shot to shit, and your rooting for them and not the cops. Overall as a film it’s pretty amazing, unlike the first one where, some of it was good but it dragged on and wasn’t anything amazing, but still a good horror.

    The song free bird at the end is used spectatularly

  • January 15, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    huh I just wanna say that i love that movie never saw it in such a ”deep” way before but wow its awesome. i really like the feeling that your actually a sick person just for watching it (in my opinion) i was about 10-11 when i watched this movie and i still love it its a great one…

    i loved this movie so hard!!! i actually felt like if the murderers were the heroes… and when the sheriff got his neck broken, me and a friedn of mine who watched this movie actually started with hardcore cheering and let up a high five…. man was this a masterpiece!!!

    am i the only one who cryed during the ending

  • July 12, 2011 at 6:52 am

    This was the most fucked up movie i’ve seen in my life. It left me with a bad feeling for days. I guess it did what it was intended to do

    What is the music played at the very beginning? It’s driving me crazy trying to figure out where I know that song from!

    House of 1000 Corpses sucked monkey ass….

    … but The Devil’s Rejects is awesome… by far one of the best horror movie of the past 10 years and a true jewel in a sea of bland unenterataining ‘horror’ movies.

    I’m not really a fan of Rob Zombie (music or film) but I think he did a truly awesome job on TDR.

    Also there is a good balance of comedy and drama.


    BTW I somewhat have the feeling that Ho1000C is a ‘re-imagining’ of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the originale) and TDR is a re-imagining of TCM2.

    I do not know but I see a lot of parallels (for example both in TDR and TCM2 there is a crazy sheriff who goes apeshit against the psycho killers)

    This film surprised me too, since I wasn’t a big fan of “House of a 1000 Corpses”, but I feel this film improved on the first installment by a large measure.

    i absolutely loved this movie, great review…

  • April 29, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    You were confused about who was the good/bad guy? I never felt the slighest amount of pity for those 3, in fact I was hoping they’d get even more torture. How could you possibly feel sorry for them after all the things they did? I find that line of thinking scary.

  • pobO

    July 28, 2013 at 10:54 am

    Shit movie.
    Just a bunch of white trash tards torturing innocent people.
    And no I never ever sympathised with any of the three.

  • February 18, 2014 at 5:39 pm

    Maybe Rob could do a friday the 13th? I like his style. The kills in the new one were kinda lame: deer horn kill 🙂

    I respect James’ opinion, but this film was average at best. It’s shallow, pretentious, and the interactions between all the characters are mostly annoying. Rob Zombie’s wife is annoying. I think that pretty much covers it.

  • July 26, 2014 at 8:46 pm

    Rob Zombie had a unique way to flip every routine emotion you had towards a movie. These are bad guys, hate them… wait now you think they’re funny, now you think they’re evil again… now you feel bad for them.

    Here’s a cop going after killers, he’s a good guy. Now he seems crazy but his intentions are good, nope! Now we think he’s the bad guy. That unique way of telling a story, a story you’d think you’ve heard a million times somehow seems completely original and that makes this movie stand out. It’s a damn good horror movie.

    This movie is the shit! I made my boyfriend at the time go see it with me in theaters. I’d already seen it once or twice. He was scared and REALLY upset with me. Fucking pansy. We broke up soon after.

  • October 23, 2014 at 6:22 pm

    loved this film, i still find myself siding with the sheriff, they got what they deserved, too bad the sheriff got offed. they are monsters

  • fcabanski

    Only a fool is carried to and fro by his emotions. All the people in this movie are evil.

  • March 27, 2015 at 4:42 am

    I liked House more for awhile because House felt like a perfect movie for Halloween Child’s Play 1 & 2 also are perfect movies to watch around Halloween, must be the dark Humor but this one got better with time.

    hey you have to do Hobo with a Shotgun. horror or not, its fucken terrifying!

  • September 30, 2015 at 5:02 am

    I saw this in theaters and thought it was a terrible movie through and through. Didn’t deserve any praise for any part what so ever. Maybe you think I’m overly critical, but it didn’t deserve any praise as a movie what so ever. Its tribute to texas chainsaw massacre was pathetic and nothing but a stolen idea that didn’t play out well. The ending made me sick. That any one would try to paint them in any light as heroes was disgusting.

    I love me some horror films, but this wasn’t a horror film. It was just bad.

    Rob Zombie did a good example of how deep down inside we are all bad guys in our own special way.

  • December 30, 2015 at 3:59 am

    I loved this movie… it’s harder now to say which one I like more, out of this or House of 1000 Corpses, this one’s way sicker. I could comment on it all day.

    The Devil’s Rejects was so much better than House of 1000 Corpses..That one was just horrible

  • Justin Forsythe

    June 12, 2017 at 1:55 pm

    When Forsythe (hey, that’s my name) kills them every thing he does is almost a direct response to something they’ve done. So, it’s hard to feel sorry for them.
