"The Devil's Rejects" is brutal. It celebrates it excessiveness in every scene. It starts off brutal and ends the same way, never really letting off the throttle to give its audience time to breath. The violence, nudity, profanity, or sadistic atmosphere of the film are constant. However, that is kind of the point of this movie. This is a sequel of sorts to "House of 1,000 Corpses" and I will say that where "House" is a "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" wannabe or homage, "The Devil's Rejects" is more self-identifying. The story revolves around the Firefly family, a family of murderers that are evading the law while still keeping up their murderous ways. There is a lot of nauseating sequences and some moments that will make you feel disconnecting from humanity. I think Rob Zombie is really trying to showcase how far humans can get from their humanity, and I really hope that we don't get this disjointed from our morals and values. There are no real heroes in this movie. We follow the murder group around and they are pursued by a cop that is willing to cross the line to have revenge, so he is not really a hero either. There is a real loss of a moral compass here that might have enhanced the movie a bit. It is so deprived of humanity that it makes it difficult to watch. However, a lot of the problems that plagued "House" are not nearly as prominent here, The acting and writing is a lot better and more convincing. Zombie shows that he does have directing chops as well, whereas "House" felt more like a Zombie music showcase at moments rather than a movie. There is some campiness to this movie and some very dark humor, which eases it a tad. Although this movie is better than its predecessor, it is still not a great movie. If you are a fan of this type of movie, go for it. If you are squeamish, easily disturbed, or not a gore fan, pass on this. It is definitely glutinous in its vulgarity, but for what this movie is aiming to be, it largely hits the mark and is a decent gore horror movie. Overall, I give this movie a 5.5/10.
