MV5BMjIwMjM1MjM4NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNTgyMzUzMw@@._V1_SX214_AL_Review (Spoils): The Firefly family get tracked down by a mad Sheriff John Quincy (William Forsythe) who wants them to pay in the worse possible way like they torment their victims. They catch Mother Firefly (Leslie Easterbrook) but Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Otis (Bill Moseley) escape and track down the mad clown Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) to re-locate somewhere in the hot desert. This leads to Baby and Otis kidnapping a group of people as hostages and then they start to torment them until the sheriff and his bounty hunters invade and then this brings the flip of coin to the serial killer family.

This film is not like the first of the series at all. This film is a trip down the Manson Family lane as it has all the ingredients plus a hot babe and a crazy ass clown. We have some basic torture, gun shots, punches to the face, and some long dragging scenes of stupid teasing from Baby and once again a rip off from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 with the mask made of skin. The film is not as confusing and all over the place like the first film but at the same time I just did not feel the horror of the Firefly family nor did I feel for them once the Sheriff came along. I like how the characters are built but at the same time too much wasted time on something that should be intense when it’s not.

Rating: This film is not veil and No it’s not shocking. I get what Rob Zombie is trying to do and I appreciate it as he is a horror fan and knows the gems …but sometimes you can’t create one by rely too much what you love from the past classics. The ending, the skin mask and the huge order of classic actors and actresses does not make the perfect horror film. It’s not terrible but at the same time it is not a classic. Thank god for Sheri Moon Zombie.

Review (Spoils):  Not sure if Rob Zombie did this as a serious film or more as a ode to classic horror films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes, Don’t Look in the Basement and almost every other horror movie out there.  There is not much original in this film except maybe Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) character that is really nothing more than a foul mouth clown. The film is pretty much Rob Zombie trying too hard. The storyline has holes all through it because there are just too many characters for us to follow. The killers are far too many it’s like Zombie tried to remake the classic feel of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the wacko family (Firefly family in this case)and it is just a mess.  The whole Dr. Satan (Gregg Gibbs) thing does not make any sense and the only thing holding the film sort of together is hotness of Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie). Hell even the gory scenes are a rip off, the mask of flesh placed on the woman’s face….hmm can you say The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2? This film is filled with gore, blood, flesh scraping, freaks galore, stabbings, gun shots and lots of dead bodies. Too bad with all this goodness the film is a fucking mess.

Rating:  Dear Rob Zombie I had high hopes for you when you came out saying you were going to get into film making. Being a horror fan and great musician (White Zombie rocked!) I figured you can nail this but instead it just a wild mess of blood, gore and empty storylines.  Thank god for Sheri Moon Zombie she makes it a bit watchable.
