Bone Tomahawk Trailer


Life is quite sedentary in the small town of Bright Hope, the people rely on the support of Sheriff Franklin Hunt and as such he and his deputies keep things in order. When a beaten up man arrives in the town, he's soon asked many questions by the town Sheriff Hunt though is given few answers. The man who gives his name as Buddy is injured and the local doctors assistant tends to his wounds.

That night the town is attacked by unknown vigilantes and a person is murdered. When Sheriff Hunt returns to the Sheriff station he finds his deputy, the prisoner and Samantha (the doctors assistant) all missing. With few clues to work with, Hunt retrieves an arrow from the crime scene and seeks assistance from a native American who informs him where the arrow has come from.

The Sheriff and a small group of towns folk set out into the desert to find the kidnappers but they're far from prepared to deal with the brutal and cannibalistic methods of the troglodyte clan. For the future of their small town and to save the captures prisoners, the men of Bright Hope must out maneuverer the cannibals.

The Devil's Rejects Review


Excellent
House of 1000 Corpses, the last song on Rob Zombie's 2001 album The Sinister Urge, also served as the title track to the metal frontman-turned-filmmaker's 2003 directorial debut, but the cut's country twang-inflected ghoulishness would have made a more apt musical accompaniment for Zombie's The Devil's Rejects. Less a sequel than a spiritual follow-up, the director's latest revisits House's serial-killing Firefly clan as they're cast into the backwater dustbowls of rural America by a sheriff (William Forsythe) intent on exacting vigilante revenge for the murder of his brother. A gritty Western-via-grindhouse modern exploitation flick imbued with the ferocity of independent '70s horror, Zombie's splatterfest wisely alters virtually everything (narratively, stylistically, thematically) that characterized his campy, cartoonish and awkward first film. And from its coarse, graphic visual aesthetic, profusion of classic Southern rock tunes, and portrait of unrepentant mayhem, his film reverentially exults in the deranged spirit and impulsive, unpredictable energy of seminal genre masterpieces The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes.

The Devil's Rejects diverges from its predecessor beginning with its opening frames, in which the depiction of the Firefly residence - no longer a remote, forest-shrouded funhouse of horrors but, rather, a dilapidated structure situated in a stretch of open land - speaks to the film's rejection of atmospheric claustrophobia in favor of wide-open anarchy. A fascination with rampant disorder certainly fuels the tour de force intro sequence, a bullet-strewn siege on the Firefly home by Sheriff Wydell (Forsythe) and an army of police officers heightened by Zombie's sly use of freeze frames, Sergio Leone-esque close-ups, and The Allman Brothers' "Midnight Rider." Exhibiting a directorial maturity devoid of his former MTV-ish gimmickry (no hyper-edited montages with varying film stocks or bludgeoning industrial heavy metal here), the director orchestrates the chaotic events with feverish abandon, his shaky handheld camera set-ups and scraggly, sun-bleached cinematography (courtesy of Phil Parmet) placing us directly inside the carnage. By the time murderous siblings Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon) escape their now overrun home to seek shelter in the rotting, blindingly white desert, Zombie has demonstrated a newfound adeptness at lacing nasty action with a breakneck thrust and vicious wit.

Foxy Brown Review


Good
Pam Grier's most notorious role as the title character in Foxy Brown is a cult classic that's best enjoyed with your tongue firmly in cheek and your political correctness gene locked out in the backyard. Stilted acting, absurd sexual shenanigans, and enough hair and wardrobe changes to keep a dozen costumers busy all combine to create a memorable and quite silly moviegoing experience. Plot is minimal: Foxy is looking for revenge when her boyfriend gets shot. And what Foxy wants, she gets. Meanwhile, we get a "whole lotta woman," and not much else.

Zombie Ignores Boring Hollywood Youths

Rocker-turned-film director Rob Zombie turned down offers to work with Hollywood's next big things because he thinks young actors are "boring".

The former White Zombie frontman was inundated with offers after his debut film HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES became a cult hit, but he turned everyone down and chose instead to work with forgotten film and TV veterans in his new movie THE DEVIL'S REJECTS.

Zombie - real name ROBERT CUMMINGS - admits he's always enjoyed the company of older people.
