The Devil’s Rejects
Controversial for its gratuitous use of exploitative violence and gore "The Devil’s Rejects" is unredeemable for its wrongheaded attempt at glamorizing a band of detestable serial killers. Writer/director Rob Zombie’s vaguely kindred sequel to his slapdash "House of 1000 Corpses" finds the satanic "Firefly" family of quasi-cannibals forced on the lam after a bloody showdown with cops attempting to bust up their murderous enterprise. William Forsythe takes on thankless acting duties as the film’s temporary protagonist Sheriff Wydell before a third act bait-and-switch substitutes the serial killers as the would-be empathetic characters the audience is expected to side with. "The Devil’s Rejects" is a fascist piece of neoconservative filmmaking that should be ignored with a vengeance.
Rated R. 101 mins. (F) Zero Stars
