Sheri Moon Zombie,
Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in an abandoned, Hell-like compound where they are forced to participate in a violent game, the goal of which is to survive twelve hours against a gang of sadistic clowns.
Jeff Daniel Phillips
Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
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. Written by

Outstanding addition to the horror genre - this movie bites!
Wow! Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects" turns up the violence a notch in this sequel to his earlier entry into the horror genre, "House of 1000 Corpses". In this hard-hitting movie, we pick up the tale of the extremely warped central characters a few months after the events of the original tale. The film moves at a great pace and reminded me of a Tarantino project - convincing performances from some familiar genre favourites (including Ken Foree from Romero's "Dawn of the Dead"), sparkling dialogue and loads of over-the-top, uncompromising violence.
The visuals and soundtrack to "The Devil's Rejects" are jaw-droppingly impressive. This film looks like a labour of love. It's a real treasure chest of delights for horror fans and a film that demands a second viewing.
One last thing, just make sure you watch the full-strength, unrated version for maximum effect.
