Weekend movie tip

Friday again! A week goes by fast.

If last week’s movie was a feelgood movie than perhaps this week’s movie is quite the opposite of feelgood.

Im talking about Rob Zombie´s The Devil Rejects(2005).

“In Ruggsville, Texas, the police under the command of Sheriff John Quincy Wydell attack the house of the sadistic serial killers Firefly family (a.k.a. The Devil’s Reject) and they arrest mother Firefly, but Otis B. Driftwood and Baby Firefly escape from the siege. Tiny is wandering nearby the house and also escapes. Otis and Baby call their patriarch, the mad clown Captain Spaulding and they schedule to reunite at an isolated motel in the desert. When Otis and Baby arrive, they kidnap two families of singers, using sadism and violence against the harmless persons. Meanwhile, Sheriff Wydell promises to capture and kill the runaways, seeking revenge for the death of his brother, the Deputy George Wydell.”

I enjoyed this movie a lot…it is brutal and sadistic at times, but also quite witty, with sharp dialogue and dark humour. The protagonist Sheriff Wydell is just as twisted and evil as his antagonist gang of Captain Spaulding, Otis and Baby. Its just that he’s got the law on his side.

I was very surprised by the quality of this movie, after seeing Rob Zombies prequel House of 1000 corpses…which sucked big time (no need to bother seeing that). But for those of you looking for a movie with a little different touch than most horror movies, I truly recommend this movie!

But be warned…there is sadistic violence which some people might find disturbing.
