The Devils Rejects

Rob Zombies's masterpiece. This film is truly a horror film in all sense of the word, it's not the toned down crap of todays horror movies. This film was released in 2005 and is still the best horror film of the decade. The film focuses on a family of serial killers who have escaped from their home after a police raid. This differs from many horror films which focus on the victims, this makes the film unique. The film is set in 1978 and is an tribute to all the exploitation films of that era. Rob Zombie is a huge horror fan and his love of the genre really shows itself in this film, he makes multiple references and tributes to horror movies in the film. The acting is superb, it's not your typical teenage acting crap, most of the cast are older and this makes the film more realistic. The actors keep the balance perfectly of playing their character over the top and realistically . Bill Mosley, Sherri Moon Zombie, and Sid Haig play the trio of serial killers but at times it doesn't feel like there acting but are actually crazy, their performances are terrifying but funny at the same time. The serial killers are funny in a good way, their always cracking jokes, this makes us like them. We the audience like the killers, we root for them even as they are doing horrible things. Ken Forre of Dawn of the Dead plays a pimp in the film who helps the killers and is a very entertaining character. The cinematography is gorgeous, the shots of the desert show the isolation of the killers. the film has a grainy look to it much like exploitation films of that era. The music in the film is excellent, it's a combination of southern rock and rock. Look out for the song Free Bird by Led Zeppelin it's used in a way you never seen before. This is a must see for any horror fan

One of my friends really likes this movie, so I've seen it twice, didn't like it either time. It moves beyond "disturbingly good" into "over the top ********" very quickly. It seems less about horror and more about Rob Zombie's sick fascination with serial killers.

Then again, I'm not a fan of horror movies in general.
