"A film made by exactly those same nitwits who wear Charles Manson T-shirts, and think that there's something really rebellious about that. He is a Nazi - how rebellious is that?!" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5live

Rob Zombie movie that people had expected Mark to like on the grounds of it being really nasty and unpleasant. He didn't, on the grounds that "anyone who thinks that [Charles] Manson was an interesting character - as opposed to just a cheap, scuzzy, verminous git who deserves to rot behind bars for the rest of his life - is an idiot. And I'm sorry, that's it."

Oddly, The Devil's Rejects was only the second-worst film of 2005 to feature Lynyrd Skynyrd's Freebird in its closing moments - the worst being Elizabethtown.
