THE DEVIL'S REJECTS: The Critics Rave!

Saw Rob Zombie's THE DEVIL'S REJECTS back in 2005 at a midnight show the night before its big national release. Came home that night and immediately put this together:

THE DEVIL'S REJECTS: The Critics Rave!

"Offensively inhuman, uninspired and cruelly unoriginal."
--Robert K. Elder, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"A reprehensible and loathsome journey of excess...any redeeming value is well hidden. "
--Edward Douglas, COMINGSOON.NET

"The Devil's Rejects doesn't just deserve to be rejected, but to be buried in a hole so dank that no one will discover it."
--James Berardinelli, REELVIEWS

"A Reject Indeed. Zombie horror film unwatchable."
--Angela Baldassarre, SYMPATICO.CA

"Zombie doesn't appear to have any other goals besides assaulting the viewer with gore and callousness."

"...there's little pleasure to be found in a movie of this nature."
--Peter Debruge, MIAMI HERALD

"Crass, vacuous exercise in grind-house stylistics."

"Here is a gaudy vomitorium of a movie, violent, nauseating and really a pretty good example of its genre. If you are a hardened horror movie fan capable of appreciating skill and wit in the service of the deliberately disgusting, 'The Devil's Rejects' may exercise a certain strange charm. If on the other hand you close your eyes if a scene gets icky, here is a movie to see with blinders on, because it starts at icky and descends relentlessly through depraved and nauseating to the embrace of road kill."

See it! You'll be glad you did, you sick bastiches!
