Tonight’s film was the follow up to The House of 1000 Corpses. It is Rob Zombie’s film, The Devil’s Rejects (2005).

In Rejects we return to the scene of the crime in rural Texas where a family of crazed misfits lead by Otis and Baby and a demented clown that goes by the name Captain.

The Devil’s Rejects is a sick, ruthless, grab you by the throat and don’t let go horror movie. Which is exactly what it sets out to do and it succeeds brilliantly. While the movie is sadistic and violent, the characters are extremely well developed and the movie is extremely well written. I’ve always felt that Rob Zombie would make a good horror director and while Corpses wasn’t so well received it was only his first film. This is something else altogether.

What is your favorite scary movie?
