The Devil's Rejects

The other day I saw The Devil's Rejects, and I don't know why. I never saw House of 1000 Corpses and Rob Zombie as a director really doesn't entice me, but I thought I'd give things a chance.

It wasn't that bad, if you like snuff films, which aren't particularly my cup of tea, but it was an interesting take on the whole crazy-redneck-cannibalism genre. The film starts out with a raid on the crazy redneck house, then a manhunt. And of course during the manhunt those crazy rednecks do more killing. And it's brutal. Rob Zombie tries to be artsy with things and not show the killings themselves, but he fails a few times. How else can you have a girl get smashed by an 18-wheeler and not show something?

Then the movie shifts to the revenge factor. The sherrif, played by William Forsythe, is on a mission of revenge, as his brother was once killed by one of the crazy rednecks, and he starts kicking ass and taking names. Anyway, the film ends well with a nice Bonnie and Clyde-style ending.

Should you take the kids to see this? YES!!!! There's nudity, sex, and gratuitous violence and gore! Every seven year old's favorite movie!
