YMMV: The Devil's Rejects
  • Awesome Music: The entire soundtrack, but especially Free Bird by Lynard Skynard.
  • Crazy Awesome: Captain. Fucking. Spaulding.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: The Freebird scene.
    • Any time Otis speaks. Action movies wish they had lines that quotable.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The ice cream scene. Tutti-fucking-frutti!
    • The "chicken fucker" scene - "THAT GODDAMN CHICKEN WILL GO CRAZY ON YO' ASS! KAAAAAW!"
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Having villain protagonists, it gets hard to really root for anyone in the film.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Despite being the most sadistic and reprehensible member of the family by far, and being a rapist to boot, not to mention having personal hygiene that would make a monkey blush, Otis seems to attract a number of female fans.
  • Even Better Sequel: Whether you liked or loathed House of 1000 Corpses, most people tend to consider this one better than the first.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Baby Firefly
    • Otis B. Driftwood.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Basically, just about everyone had crossed the line by the end of the movie.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Everything with Otis, including skinning some guy's face off and forcing his wife to wear it as a mask.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Robert Trebor as Marty Walker, the aformentioned film scholar.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Although Rob Zombie said that the movie was intended to have no good guys, some fans felt that Sheriff Wydell's torturing of the Fireflys was morally justifiable and that the Fireflys richly deserved it. Conversely, there have been reports of entire theaters clapping during Wydell's death.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The movie was made at the height of the "War On Terror", and it shows.
    • And the fact that Otis's voice cracks at this.
  • Villain Sues: Guess who?
