That said, I thought The Devil's Rejects was a horrible movie. The depiction of murderers and rapists as anti-heroes is a well-used trope in horror, and I don't have issues with that in general. But in TDR, Zombie takes such delight in the main characters' sick actions - and puts them over with such a level of sympathy in several scenes - that it goes way further than showing them as anti-heroes.

They are given a full-on HERO's death in the end, unerringly facing a hail of bullets, Bonnie-&-Clyde style.
I just found it really difficult to accept Zombie's attitude towards them as some kind of misunderstood outcasts that deserved anything but absolute revulsion.

I'm not saying it's a bad movie, or that it's poorly made. It certainly is Rob Zombie's only watchable film. But am I missing something that so many see in TDR, for people to hail it this huge masterpiece? Honestly interested in replies <img src="https://www.wrestlingforum.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smilie" class="inlineimg" />
I agree with you. That film messed me up and I thought I was pretty unflappable to horror before that. I feel there must be something deeply wrong with Zombie to depict those characters in that fashion. I didn't want to accept them as heroes and he forced me to against the grain. It's a super uncomfortable film to watch lol.



Thanos is only beaten because he allows himself to be, and he only allows himself to be beaten because, in spite of his ambition to attain ultimate power, he sub-consciously knows that he's not worthy of it.

Having seen this thread of so many people that like it, I actually watched TDR again - it's free on Amazon Prime.

Gotta say, I did enjoy it a little more for the dark humour, and the acting was more impressive than I remembered. But yeah, the main characters are just totally unlikable, and that's a real problem when the director is pushing so hard for you to see them as heroes.

Re: The Devils Rejects; Three From Hell (2019)

Evil contra evil isn't pushing for anyone to be a hero.

But The Firefly clan is a great bunch, so I love 'em and glad they're around killing people for fun/on Satan's payroll.

Re: Three From Hell (2019)

Its gonna be a hard sell for me because Momma was always my favourite character. Add in no Tiny, RJ or Hugo and I don't have much reason to care. Yes I'm aware the actors of Tiny and Hugo died.

Re: Three From Hell (2019)

Looking forward to it. I like Rob Zombie's work. Have seen all the Halloween movies multiple times and his two movies are among my favorite. Just watched 31 the other day and thought it was pretty good. Better than I had expected.

Re: Three From Hell (2019)

Lord's of Salem was pretty garbage.

It's been what? 15 years since devil's? I'll probably catch this when it's in the bargain bin two weeks after it comes out.

So was 31. He went back to those characters because the movie remains his biggest success. I think he realized he won't do better.

I wish he stuck to music.
