->''"I am the Devil, and I am here to do the Devil's work."''
-->-- '''Otis B. Driftwood'''

''The Devil's Rejects'' (2005) is a {{horror}} {{film}} directed by Music/RobZombie. It is the sequel to ''Film/HouseOf1000Corpses'', picking up two years later as the remaining members of the psychotic Firefly family are on the run from a posse of of State Troopers who want them to answer for over 75 murders and disappearances over the past several years.

Of course, we all know this isn't going to be easy, and when Baby and Otis escape from the resultant firefight, they'll be out for one thing: Mayhem. Gory, stomach-wrenching mayhem.

Good times.

!! This movie contains examples of:

* AlasPoorVillain: ''Cause I'm as free as a bird now, and this bird you can not change.''
* AllInTheManual: The official website had character bios that explained the backstories of Otis, Spaulding and Baby.
* [[HeroAntagonist Anti-Hero Antagonist]]: Wydell to some.
* AscendedExtra[=/=]BreakoutCharacter: Sort of; in the original film Captain Spaulding's connection to the Firefly family was tenuous at best and after the opening half was absent from the rest of the film. In the sequel it's revealed that he's the family patriarch and has a considerably more prominent role in the film.
* AxCrazy: The Firefly family themselves.
* BadassBoast: See page quote.
* BashBrothers: The Unholy Two are so badass that they take on the Firefly clan and win!
* BavarianFireDrill: "I need to borrow your car. Official clown business."
* BerserkButton: If you ever, ''ever'' say a derogatory word about Elvis Aaron Presley in Sheriff Wydell's presence, he will kick the living shit out of you!
* BigDamnHeroes: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. "You want [[{{Badass}} badass]]? I'll show you [[{{Badass}} badass]]!"
* BlackComedy: The movie is hilarious when treated as this.
* BlondesAreEvil: Baby.
* BolivianArmyEnding: The surviving trio goes out like this.
* BrickJoke: One of the prostitutes suggests using a star wars -theme for attracting more customers. Later on she is seen wearing Princess Leia -hair
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Tiny appears at the near end of the film to kill Sheriff Wydell.]]
* CerebusRetcon: In the original film, most of the Firefly family were named after various Creator/MarxBrothers characters. The sequel reveals that these are in fact aliases and deliberate references to Marx by the family.
* ClusterFBomb
* ColdBloodedTorture: The Firefly family is notable for engaging in this quite a lot. The sheriff turns it back on them towards the end.
* DaylightHorror
* DeletedRole: Rob Zombie filmed a scene for Dr. Satan from the first film but ultimately cut it out, saying that it would be like having "[[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]] in ''Film/TheWildBunch''."
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: This line from Marty Walker, the film scholar:
-->"I happen to be a self-proclaimed Marx Brothers expert, if I say so myself."
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: It's clear by the end how much the Firefly Family loves one another.
* EvilVersusEvil: The Firefly family vs. Sheriff Wydell. Ultimately very few named characters and no major characters in the film wind up being entirely sympathetic. A film where the protagonists are vicious serial killers and their opposition is a religiously fanatical RabidCop [[spoiler: seeking vengeance]] is ultimately how the story winds up. A telling example of the fact that this film [[SlidingScaleofIdealismVsCynicism leans very heavily to the cynical end of the spectrum]] is that all the named characters that are not in some way involved with either the [[AxCrazy Firefly family]] in some manner or the police wind up being innocents get caught up in the situation and wind up dying horribly.
* FakeBand: Banjo & Sullivan. It's a plot point that Adam Banjo and Roy Sullivan are country musicians, but we never actually hear them perform in film. One of their songs appears on the soundtrack album, while a full fake GreatestHitsAlbum, titled ''The Ultimate Collection 1972-1978'', was released as a tie-in: In both cases, the music was provided by country performer Jesse Dayton.
* TheFamilyThatSlaysTogether
* FanDisservice: Captain Spaulding in dirty underwear. In the unrated cut you can even see his ballsack for a second.
* FandomRivalry: InUniverse. The police aren't happy about the movie buff's complaining about how Music/ElvisPresley's death knocked that of [[Creator/MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]] off of the front page.
* FlayingAlive: Let's just say Otis has quite a hobby.
* {{Gorn}}
* GilliganCut:
-->'''Otis:''' There's no fucking ice cream in your fucking future! *cuts to Spaulding and Baby eating ice cream*
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Sheriff Wydell.
* IAmTheTrope: See page quote.
* {{I Love the Dead}}: It's hinted Otis is a Necrophiliac.
* IHitYouYouHitTheGround: "I hit you, your dick hits the dirt!"
* ItRunsInTheFamily: The Fireflys.
* KitschyLocalCommercial: Spaulding finds out about his family's predicament when he is watching the premiere of the new commercial for his business on television.
* KnightTemplar: Sheriff Wydell.
* LargeHam: A lot of characters, but especially the Fireflys.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After spending most of the movie (and untold years before that) torturing, raping and killing, the three Firefly's are captured, tortured and beaten by Sheriff Wydell. [[spoiler: After escaping thanks to Tiny, they don't get very far, thanks to a roadblock of pissed off cops with guns. They go out fighting, but still go out.]]
* MonsterClown: Captain Spaulding, although he takes off the clown makeup fairly early on.
* TheOtherDarrin: Rufus and Mother Firefly are portrayed by different actors. In the case of Mother Firefly, Karen Black wanted more money to reprise her role; she eventually relented but Leslie Easterbrook had already been cast in her place.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: Wydell's torture of the Fireflys. Although he embraces HeWhoFightsMonsters, the people he was horrifically abusing and butchering had seventy-five bodies (minimum) worth of victims, ranging from torture and rape to horrific mutilation. The fact that they actively brag about their kills in detail doesn't help their situation.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:Captain Spaulding trying to protect Baby during interrogation.]]
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Otis uses some homophobic slurs.
* PrecisionFStrike: For a movie that holds the record for F-bombs, it has an F-strike made all the sweeter by the fact it actually ''lampshades'' the F-strike itself!
-->'''Adam Banjo''': Fuck...you...
-->'''Otis B. Driftwood''': That's what they all say. (mocking) "Fuck you!" Well it ain't gonna save you. It don't scare me none and it don't suddenly make you a fucking hero.
** Arguably becomes IronicEcho toward the end when Wydell has Baby at his mercy.
* RabidCop: The Texas State Police themselves, especially Sheriff Wydell and Officer Ray Dobson.
* TheSavageSouth: Where else can you find [[spoiler: a family of killers, a freak show made of real former people, and]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Captain Spaulding's Fried Chicken]]?
* ShoutOut: Captain Spaulding, Otis B. Driftwood, and Rufus T. Firefly are all named after characters played by Groucho in various Creator/MarxBrothers movies.
* SoundtrackDissonance: The ending scene is set to "Freebird" [[spoiler: as Baby, Otis, and Spaulding ride to their deaths at a police barricade.]]
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Several Firefly members are killed, captured, or disappear after the opening shootout with police.
* SuicideByCop: [[spoiler: The final shootout.]]
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: "Did I stutter, bitch?"
* {{Villain Protagonist}}s: The Fireflys, Otis, and Captain Spaulding.
* VillainsOutShopping: Enjoying some "[[ShoutOut Tutti-fucking-]][[Film/ADayAtTheRaces Frutti!]]"
* TheVoiceless: Tiny.
* VomitDiscretionShot: Captain Spaulding goes to pee; cut to a shot of coffee being poured.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: There's no mention of Grandpa Hugo from the first film; Rob Zombie decided not to recast the character out of respect for Dennis Fimple, who died shortly after shooting his role in ''House''.
