Damn, I just watched this movie tonight. F'ing INTENSE. With two pillows in my lap I could feel my arms and shoulders getting tight. It's an evil F'ing movie. I like how the good cop went bad and delivered some vigilante justice. And of course you know I really appreciated Freebird at the end of the movie when the final three rejects shot it out with the law. I have to admit though that I thought it was also a bit warped to use Freebird in that scene, but the song and the scenes of the bloody rejects pullling themselves together for one more fight worked very well.

I really liked the way the movie kicked off with the studio version of Midnight Rider and then how Saturday Night Special got a little air time and then later Freebird was used.

And isn't that Deborah Harry in the movie?

Anyway, for an EVIL GOREFEST with a lot of SADISM The Devil's Rejects is still a pretty entertaining and WELL MADE film. Too bad also that SERIAL KILLERS and SADISTS were glorified. For KILLERS the characters seemed SADISTICALLY COOL.

It's hard to believe that the movie is based on some REAL LIFE KILLERS.

I saw Amityville Horror, that scared the crap out of me the first time I saw it. Another good movie was 30 Days Of Night....

I just got through watching 1408. Pretty good. I'd recommend it. No slashers, but some good psychological horror, e.g., Stir of Echoes, The Ring, etc.

Also, the DVD had previews for the two films that made up the "Grindhouse" pairing. Anyone have any comments on either of those?



Droog, I watched 1408 but thought it was pretty weak. I also watched Number 23 with Jim Carey, also weak. I have The Ring on vhs, good flick. I also have Ringu and Ringu2, the Japanese versions with English Subtitles, both of them are good. I have yet to see the American version of The Ring 2. I hear it is not good.

By the way, The Devils Rejects got TWO THUMBS UP by Ebert and Ropert. I remember watching the episode where they reviewed the movie. They thought it was well made and well acted and very GRISLY and SADISTIC.

I thought the Grindhouse flicks were dreadful, especially Tarrantino's one, words couldn't describe how shockingly awful it was .

Have you heard it ?

Kenny, I don't have the dvd with which to check out the commentary, or believe me, I would. I watched the movie via Comcast's "Free On Demand" movies. And normally I don't watch stuff like that but lately my tastes are getting well, perhaps a little sick! I've been enjoying B movies and zombie flicks for the last few years. I also watched The Incredible Melting Man on YouTube. It was in about 10 parts and it had Mystery Science Theater commentary. Anyway, the melting effects/makeup looked pretty cool. The movie is stupid and almost shot in the complete dark, but still worth watching for the melting effects.

I just watched See No Evil from around 1971 with Mia Farrow. Today is the last day for that movie so I checked it out. Tonight I am going to watch another Mia Farrow flick, and I think that one may be The Haunting of Julia. There were two or three Mia Farrow movies that all end today.


Also, I knew of course about John Wayne GAYcy! Have you seen the movie with that fat blonde guy, you know the local sheriff who was after Rambo in that first movie? Well, I think he was Gacy in that movie.

Well so much for this movie having had any factual documentary value. That means it was just good sick movie making. And the language, it was F this , F that from just about the first frame to the last. Still, a good intense filick.


Dean, I'm tellin ya man...listen to the DVD with the actors commentary, you will get some good laughs and interesting facts about the movie. The Bad guys do the commentary.

Actually Dean it was not really based on any true group of psycho's in real life.

A lot of Horror movies will add that caption, when in fact it's not true. It was a gimmick...to freak people out.

The names of the villains were taken from the names of Groucho Marx characters. (Animal Crackers' "Captain Spaulding", A Night at the Opera's "Otis B. Driftwood", Duck Soup's "Rufus T. Firefly" and A Day at the Races' "Hugo Z. Hackenbush", among others.) While this was left as a subtle allusion in the first movie, the sequel The Devil's Rejects brought it out into the open, with the names becoming integral to the plot.
----------------------





There was a Clown that killed by the name of John Wayne Gacey:

Born John Wayne Gacy, Jr. at the Edgewater Hospital, Chicago, Illinois, he was raised a Catholic in a suburb of Chicago. He had a troubled relationship with his father, John Gacy Sr. (Illinois, June 20, 1900-December 25, 1969), a physically abusive alcoholic who often called his son a "sissy.". He was close to his mother, Marion Elaine Robinson (Racine, Wisconsin, May 4, 1908 Cabot, Arkansas, December 1989).

After graduating from high school, Gacy worked briefly in Las Vegas before returning to Illinois. He attended a business college and started a moderately successful career as a shoe salesman in Springfield, Illinois, where he became a prominent member of the Jaycees. Gacy married in 1964. The same year, he had his first known homosexual encounter while his wife was in labour with their son, Michael. Years later, Gacy would deny that he was gay, stating that he was in fact bisexual.
He moved to Waterloo, Iowa, where he managed a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant belonging to his wife's family.

Gacy's marriage fell apart after he was convicted of child molestation in December 1968 and was sent to prison. He was paroled in 1970 after serving 18 months of a 10-year sentence. During his incarceration, Gacy's father died from liver cirrhosis on Christmas Day 1969. After Gacy was released, he moved back to Illinois. He successfully hid this criminal record until police began investigating him for his later murders.

In 1971, he bought a house at 8213 West Summerdale Avenue, in an unincorporated area of Norwood Park Township, Cook County, which is surrounded by the northwest side Chicago neighborhood of Norwood Park. He became active in the local Democratic Party, first volunteering to clean the party offices. He eventually earned the title of precinct captain. In this capacity, he met and was photographed with future-First Lady Rosalynn Carter During the search of Gacy's house after his arrest, this photo caused a major embarrassment to the U.S. Secret Service, as the photo depicted Gacy wearing an "S" lapel pin, which meant the Secret Service had given him a high-level security clearance

Gacy's wife divorced him in March 1976; the killings began in earnest the following month. Darrell Sampson disappeared on April 6, 1976. In 1977, David Daniel would state that Gacy offered him a ride at the bus depot, but Daniel refused. He further states that Gacy was very insistent, asking him seven times, offering marijuana as a lure. [8] Daniel is one of only two known survivors alive to describe Gacy's approach, the other being Jeffrey Ringall.

No suspicion fell on Gacy until December 12, 1978, when he was investigated following the disappearance of 15-year-old Robert Piest, who was last seen with Gacy. A search of his house, by Des Plaines detective Joseph Kozenczak, revealed a number of incriminating items related to other disappearances.

On December 22, 1978, Gacy went to his lawyers and confessed to 33 murders and indicated the location of 31 bodies to police they were buried under his house and on his property. The two others he said were thrown into the nearby Des Plaines River. Gacy would often stick clothing in their mouths to muffle their screams. After he would choke them with a rope or a board as he sexually assaulted them. Gacy would also keep the bodies with him for as long as decomposition would allow. He picked up at least one of his victims at the bus station. The youngest identified victims were Samuel Stapleton and Michael Marino, both 14 years old; the oldest were Russell Nelson and James Mazzara, both 21 years old. Nine of the victims were so badly decomposed that they were never identified. The bodies were uncovered from December 1978 until April 1979, when the last known victim was found downstream in the Illinois River.

On February 6, 1980, Gacy's trial began in Chicago. During the trial, he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. However, this plea was rejected outright; Gacy's lawyer, Sam Amirante, said that Gacy had moments of temporary insanity at the time of each individual murder, but regained his sanity before and after to lure and dispose of victims.

While on trial Gacy joked that the only thing he was guilty of was "running a cemetery without a license." At one point in the trial, Gacy's defense also tried to claim that all 33 murders were accidental deaths as part of erotic asphyxia, but the Cook County Coroner countered this assertion with evidence that Gacy's claim was impossible. Gacy had also made an earlier confession to police, and was unable to have this evidence suppressed. He was found guilty on March 13 and sentenced to death.

On May 10, 1994, Gacy was executed at Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill, Illinois, by lethal injection. His last meal consisted of a dozen deep fried shrimp, a bucket of original recipe chicken from Kentucky Fried Chicken, a pound of fresh strawberries and french fries. His execution was a minor media sensation, and large crowds of people gathered for "execution parties" outside the penitentiary, with numerous arrests for public intoxication, open intoxicants, and disorderly conduct. Vendors sold T-shirts and merchandise, and the crowd cheered at the moment when Gacy was pronounced dead.

According to reports, Gacy did not express remorse. His last words to his lawyer in his cell were to the effect that killing him would not bring anyone back, and it is reported his last words were "Kiss my ass," which he said to a guard while he was being sent to the execution chamber.[citation needed]

After the execution began, the lethal chemicals unexpectedly solidified, clogging the IV tube that led into Gacy's arm, and preventing any further passage. Blinds covering the window through which witnesses observed the execution were drawn, and the execution team replaced the clogged tube with a new one. Ten minutes later, the blinds were reopened and the execution resumed. It took 18 minutes to complete. Anesthesiologists blamed the problem on the inexperience of prison officials who were conducting the execution, saying that proper procedures taught in "IV 101" would have prevented the error. This apparently led to Illinois' adoption of a different method of lethal injection. Of this subject, the chief prosecutor at Gacy's trial, William Kunkle, said "He still got a much easier death than any of his victims."

After his execution, Gacy's brain was removed. It is currently in the possession of Dr. Helen Morrison, who interviewed Gacy and other serial killers in an attempt to isolate common personality traits of violent sociopaths. However, an examination of Gacy's brain after his execution by the forensic psychiatrist hired by his lawyers revealed no abnormalities.

She has said Gacy did not fit into any psychological profile associated with serial killers, and the psychological reasons for his crimes will probably never be known. During Gacy's trial, Morrison appeared as a psychiatric witness and told the court that he had "the emotional makeup of an infant".

No thats Priscilla Barnes, that was on Three's Company



Kenny, I knew I recognized the woman, and I knew that Deborah Harry had at one point been quite heavy. I was thinking that Deborah Harry had gotten herself into shape. Anyway, the problem with this movie is it makes SADISTIC, TWISTED, CRAZED, DEMONIC, KILLERS seem kind of cool. The clown guy and the guy with long gray hair seemed kind of cool. Anyway, sick but well made and well acted movie. And did the burned up guy go back into the house to commit suicide?


And what happened in real life when these murders were discoverd, in a nutshell if you know.

Yeah, I checked it out a few months back. If you're looking for "warped, brutal, sadistic, etc.," then this is your flick.

I watched Hostel II yesterday. No where near as good as the original, but it had a few good moments. I liked the way they got a little more into the business of the "elite hunt club" or whatever it was called - particularly the bidding war . . . that was cool, though sick, of course.


Possible Spoiler below . . .







This one was actually a little less brutal than the first one, with only one full-on torture/murder. Although that one scene was IMO more intense than anything in the first movie.
