The Devils Rejects - sequel to House of 1000 Corpses
 
I like the premise and how it won't be a totally separate film from House:

The unthinkable horror and chaos continues a few weeks after the events depicted in House of 1000 Corpses, as this film's focus shifts to a conflict between the various evil family members of the first movie and a new set of murderous loonies, in a blood-soaked road movie that leaves that 'House' with all its corpses. With two gangs of bloodthirsty bodily mutilation enthusiasts set loose at each other's necks, who will emerge victorious? The conflict starts when the 'house of 1000 corpses' is raided by a S.W.A.T. team, where the events of the first film are discovered in all of their shocking horror... As the maniacs the media dubs "The Devil's Rejects" flee the scene of the many, many crimes as their house burns down, they take off on a bloody road trip...

I personally can't wait and for those of you who despised House of 1000 Corpses.......this thread's for you.

HOUSE was a real let down for me. In fact, I hated it. But some of the casting and this synopsis you posted for TDR makes me want to give Rob Z's movies another try. However, I'll probably wait till it's on dvd.

Groucho 05-29-04 11:19 PM

I'm a little surprised. Wasn't the first film a huge failure (due in part to problems getting distribution)? Is this going to be straight to video or are they trying for another theatrical release? Is Rob Zombie still involved? What is the source of the original information?

gcribbs 05-29-04 11:21 PM

He must have made at least a little money on House if he is making a new movie.

I passed on House and will wait for the future Trilogy Box Set.

I wonder what the Bookends will look like ;)

Is that supposed to mean only good movies get sequels or something? Because we all know that isn't the case.

Rival11 05-30-04 12:53 AM

First, some links:

Devil's Rejects

From upcoming horror movies

Groucho - No, this film is suppose to hit theaters.

Corvin - I was just being a smart ass :D

upcoming horror movies has the most info for this movie so far. I got the original premise from yahoo movies....sorry, I should have mentioned that.

I liked House of 100 Corpses and thought it was much better the 2nd time around (one I knew what I was getting into) and I'm a huge Rob Zombie fan. I'll be there opening day (thats if any theatre around here plays the damn thing.. unlike House which I had to wait for the DVD)

Rival11 07-04-04 03:11 PM

Here's a nice interview from Creature Corner, a funny note is that Eli Roth (director of Cabin Fever) visits the set:

Looks like the release date has been pushed out a little futher as well but what has me really pumped up is how brutal the movie is suppose to be - please note that there are some spoilers (and a few on set pics).

Dr. DVD 07-04-04 04:15 PM

So we might be getting a horror movie with no good guys? Interesting.

Amel 07-04-04 06:52 PM

The first one was good enough to get me interested in this one. And the premise sounds really cool.

Geofferson 07-04-04 08:29 PM

House... was a letdown for me as well, but I too will give him another shot.

Rammsteinfan 07-04-04 09:00 PM

I liked House more the second and third time around. RZ made the first film for about 7-8 million and it made more than that in theatres so it was no problem for him to get another film financed. Maybe we will finally get that uncut House when Devils Rejects hits theatres or DVD.

I hope it's true. I have always wanted to see horror movie from the villains' point of view, and one in which it will be "pure evil vs. just as, if not worse evil" fascinates me. And hey, if Sheri Moon shakes her rump and runs around nekkid again, that won't hurt!

From the interview that's what it sounds like especailly with the hotel scene he mentioned.

Ha, yeah - It should be required that Sherri Moon makes us all drool again :up:

Julie Walker 07-06-04 01:13 AM

I can't wait for this!

Loved the original and will be there opening night...at midnight I hope,just like the original :D

Jray 07-06-04 01:47 PM

I really tried to like the first one. I did. Watched it at the theater and rented it on DVD. I just couldn't get into it.

That said, I will see the 2nd one if Captain Spaulding is back and they do more with his character. He stole the show when he was onscreen. I haven't gone to any of the links yet to see if he is back or not so forgive me if this is known.

Another reason I won't mind watching the 2nd one is that I hope (and count on) that Zombie has learned some lessons and will be a better director. :Fingers crossed:

cultshock 07-06-04 07:25 PM

I really liked the first two thirds of House.., but the final third just kind of fell apart for me. I agree that Sid Haig as Capt Spaulding was the best part of the film, he was great, and if his character has a bigger part in the sequel, I would definitely want to see it.

starseed1981 07-07-04 07:45 AM

I really disliked the first film. For me there was a definite attempt to shock the viewer rather than engage him/her with suspense. But at the same time I think this might have been what the director intended.....a movie that is totally split in two. You either love it or hate it.

But I have to say....a movie with no good guys is something I might have to see....when it comes out in the 2nd run theatres anyhow.

mikewendt 07-19-04 08:39 PM

I wonder why they got Leslie Easterbrook to play Mother Firefly instead of bringing Karen Black back.

Should be interesting anyway.

asianxcore 07-19-04 09:00 PM

as others have said, I hope that with the sequel coming out, maybe a studio will give a shot at the uncut version of House of 1000 Corpses.

I also really tried to like the first one, I really liked the first 20-30 minutes, then it just kind of went in all directions near the middle/end.

Loved the first one.

Can't wait for this one. :up:
