Wow is pretty much all I have to say. I just recently rented this out of curiosity, having never seen House of 1000 Corpses, but it was a great
decision. I expected just a typical slasher film, but this is so much more. It's brutal, unrelentless, and one of the few films(well actually, probably the only film) where one can sympathize with a person who just cut the face off a man and made his wife wear it. The character deveolpment was fantastic, I loved seeing the Sheriff slowly lose it over the course of the movie, even when he began to torture the Rejects, I was still rooting for him, because they were getting exactly what they deserved. The sheriff dying was extremely predictbale(and very disappointing I might add), but thankfully Zombie didn't choose to end the movie there. And to top things off, the music really fits the movie, I'm no fan of country and find "Freebird" extremely overrated, but it fits TDR
perfectly. Overrall, this is a great movie that any horror fan should get around to viewing. Didn't see a talkback thread for it so I decided to do the right thing.
