Not sure if anyone has posted on this movie yet, and You can take my opinion for what it's worth but this film is a masterpiece, if you can handle violence in a movie I urge you to see it, if you, like me, love some well-done violence in a movie well then YOU MUST SEE IT!

I was skeptical after seeing house of a 1000 corpses, which i didn't like too much(but it wasn't bad), but this rob zombie guy really knows what he's doing... if you don't believe me look it up on roger eberts website, he sums it up pretty perfectly, although he didn't love it as much as I did.

I'm curious about this movie. I haven't seen House of 1000 Corpses yet, but I'm planning to. I understand that The Devil's Rejects is somewhat of a sequel. Right?

yeah it's technically a sequel but the only thing they really have in common are the characters... I'd recomend forgetting about 1000 corpses and just go see devil's rejects, it's light years ahead as far as quality and greatness.

Devils Rejects was shot on a 16mm arriflex, then blown up to 35mm for that classic 70's grainy film look.
I enjoyed the film for its guest cameos as well as the violence.
PJ (Halloween and Carrie) Soles
Mary (Death Race 2000) Woronov
Michael (Hills Have Eyes bald creepy guy) Berryman
Ken (Dawn Of The Dead and From Beyond) Foree
William (Cockeye) Forsythe
Geoffrey (High Plains Drifter) Lewis
Tom (Henry portrait of a serial killer) Towles
Deborah Van ( Warriors) Valkenberg

Check it out

I was sorely disappointed with the film, and wrote about it at length in my blog after seeing it.  I'd quote from my writing here, but there's extensive spoilage and I don't want to taint the experience of anyone still thinking about seeing the film.

Rob Zombie's cinematographer definitely knew what he was doing with this picture, and I'll agree that the look is one of the most impressive things about the film.  I'd like to see Zombie tackle the western genre directly, though I doubt that will ever happen.

Ken Foree was in this film? I'm not a fan of Zombie and therefore the film doesn't really appeal to me at all.

I saw House of 1000 Corpses a few weeks ago. I thought it was pretty decent. It actually felt more like a Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie than the remake of TCM did. I'm sure I'll get around to The Devil's Rejects within the next few weeks.

Watched this the other night, slasher flick with William Forsythe (OUTIA) and Geoffrey Lewis (My Name is Nobody) pretty grusome reminded my of "Last House on the Left" & "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" not for all tastes thats for sure.

I loved it...

http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=2222.msg19934#msg19934

one of the best movies to come out in the past decade as far as i'm concerned... and as far as the horror genre is concerned it's a diamond in the pile of horses**t... forsythe made the movie though.

It was much better than Zombies previous HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES, probably the worst horror film of the past several years. DEVILS REJECTS is not a slasher though. It's a throwback to all those vicious grindhouse movies of the 70s that played drive-ins and 42nd Street in New York and it wasn't even as nasty as some of those earlier films it pays tribute to. here is a brief list of some of those savage 70s movies(at least ones I can think of at the moment)if you're interested-
I DRINK YOUR BLOOD 1971-A group of hippies beat up an old mans granddaughter and his grandson gives them meat pies injected with rabies which causes them to become rabid lunatics who proceed to massacre everyone in sight and spread the disease creating more psycho killers in the process.
HILLS HAVE EYES 1977
THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT 1972
MOTHERS DAY 1980 An old woman teaches her two lunatic sons to rape beat and kill women until three ladies turn the tables on there attackers.
I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 1979
THE LAST HOUSE ON DEAD END STREET 1977-A porno filmmaker wants to show the world what he is capable of and begins making snuff films killing off people held captive in a house.
SALO-THE 120 DAYS OF SODOM 1975-From Pier Paolo Pasolini(KILL & PRAY)The one film that had me turning from the tv screen. After WW2, some italian aristocratic Fascists capture young men and women and subject them to tortures unmentionable here.
ILSA, SHE WOLF OF THE SS 1974-Dyanne Thorne committed career suicide with her performance in this and three sequels. One of the nastiest movies you'll ever see with bordering on hardcore sex and scenes of extreme violence and torture. Shot on HOGANS HEROES sets and the first two photographed by Dean Cundy, John Carpenters future DP who also went on to do JURASSIC PARK.
ISLAND OF DEATH 1975-Banned in many countries. About a couple that gets off on mutilating in a variety of ways anyone they come into contact with. A double shocker of an ending on this one.
CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 1979-The granddaddy nasty. Sticks with you long after you've turned it off. A professor goes into the amazon to find out what became of a documentary film crew lost and presumed eaten by cannibals. After witnessing countless atrocities, he finds the crews film cans and brings them back to NY. The professor and a group of television executives who want to air the footage, watch what the crew filmed including there deaths. BLAIR WITCH owes a lot to this one.
FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE 1977-William Sanderson(NEWHART)and two cronies escape prison and take a black family hostage subjecting them to cruelty and torture until the family exacts revenge on their captors.

Not many horror flicks hit my buttons but this one did, so over the top, but so entertaining liked it so much that I rented House of a 1000 Corpses, a little let down by that but still worth the rental price.

Don't get me wrong, I really (do think that I) am one funny bastard, but you're giving me way too much credit.
