Easily making our top three films of the year so far, The Devil's Rejects is not set to be released until 26th December in the UK (that's a fair bit behind the US release of November 8th), but the cover artwork for Momentum's release of the film has popped up online, and what a nice design it is too.
The film will be available in the UK in two versions - the first being a film-only single disc 'vanilla' version, which will be available to rent from 12th December and to buy from 26th at £15.99. But true horror fans and collectors really should hold back and wait for Boxing Day when the double-disc Special Edition (£19.99) will become available.
Still no details on the Special Edition specs over here as yet, but the US version will be laden with deliciously gory Special Features including two commentaries and a monstrous behind-the-scenes documentary.
Extras already announced for the US version include a blooper reel, the full version of Captain Spaulding's Monkey/Fried Chicken commercial from the film, a Captain Spaulding Christmas spot, The Morris Green Show (the TV talk show seen in the movie, with Daniel Roebuck as Green), a Home Movie from Otis, an Otis Rush Video, a Buck Owens video and the standard deleted scenes.
The unrated R1 version will also feature "a two-and-a-half-hour documentary that diaries every day of the filmmaking process, starting with preproduction meetings". Let's hope we get the same over here too...
The Devil's Rejects centers on a band of bounty hunters led by Sheriff Wydell's brother who is fueled by revenge when he finds out that his kin was slain by the Firefly family.
The film picks up shortly after the first (House of a 1000 Corpses) with the Firefly clan going on the road after their house is burned down and a few family members have been gunned down during a police raid.
The Devil's Rejects cast list includes Sid Haig, Sheri Moon, Michael Berryman, Ken Foree, Kane Hodder, Steve Railsback, Tyler Mane, P.J. Soles, Danny Trejo, Brian Posehn, Leslie Easterbrook, Daniel Roebuck, Duane Whitaker, Rosario Dawson, Ginger Lynn and Mary Woronov...
