"I am the Devil, and I am here to do the Devil's work."
Otis B. Driftwood

The Devil's Rejects (2005) is a Horror Film directed by Rob Zombie. It is the sequel to House of 1000 Corpses, picking up two years later as the remaining members of the psychotic Firefly family are on the run from a posse of of State Troopers who want them to answer for over 75 murders and disappearances over the past several years.

Of course, we all know this isn't going to be easy, and when Baby and Otis escape from the resultant firefight, they'll be out for one thing: Mayhem. Gory, stomach-wrenching mayhem.

Good times.

Tropes used in The Devil's Rejects include:

"I happen to be a self-proclaimed Marx Brothers expert, if I say so myself."


Otis: There's no fucking ice cream in your fucking future! *cuts to Spaulding and Baby eating ice cream*

  • I Am the Trope: See page quote.
  • I Hit You, You Hit the Ground: "I hit you, your dick hits the dirt!"
  • It Runs in The Family: The Fireflys.
  • Knight Templar: Sheriff Wydell.
  • Large Ham: A lot of characters, but especially the Fireflys.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After spending most of the movie (and untold years before that) torturing, raping and killing, the three Firefly's are captured, tortured and beaten by Sheriff Wydell. After escaping thanks to Tiny, they don't get very far, thanks to a roadblock of pissed off cops with guns. They go out fighting, but still go out.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Robert Trebor as Marty Walker, the aformentioned film scholar.
  • Pet the Dog: Captain Spaulding trying to protect Baby during interrogation.
  • Politically-Incorrect Villain: Otis uses some homophobic slurs.
  • Precision F-Strike: For a movie that holds the record for F-bombs, it has an F-strike made all the sweeter by the fact it actually lampshades the F-strike itself!

Adam Banjo:
Otis B. Driftwood: That's what they all say. (mocking) "Fuck you!" Well it ain't gonna save you. It don't scare me none and it don't suddenly make you a fucking hero.
