Excellent video quality for a DVD version. No jarring cuts or plot holes... my only quibble would be mentioning the film critic and then not showing his scene. I was looking forward to seeing how this ended and, woah, he won! A great, alternate version to watch, especially if you aren't viewing this back-to-back with House of 1000 Corpses.
The horrormovies House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil Reyects are on my list as a Double Feature
But this one is really my favorite edit
I must say that this cut is great in every way
This is a example how a edit must be
I love the character of Widell played by the always great William Forsythe
But what i like the most of this edit is that Wydell "Wins"
A great ending
One thing that was cut out was his admiration for Elvis Presley, because i am also a big Presley fan so that scene was very funny to watch in the original and too bad that this was cut
But for the rest of it:
Two thumbs up for this cut!
I thought this was a pretty awesome edit. Devil's Rejects is the only Rob Zombie movie I really like so I enjoyed this cut down version. I thought the title was slightly misleading as it's still focused more on the Fireflys than on Sheriff Wydell. But everything was well edited and it played out very well.
I sampled a little bit of the B&W version and it looked good from what I saw. And I listened to about a half hour of the commentary and thought that was sweet.

First off, I’m not a huge fan of Zombie’s film and that’s probably due to the corny dialog and making heroes out of monsters. This family should be hated, period. I am a big fan of revenge movies (just went to see LAW ABIDING CITIZEN) so I enjoyed the focus of this edit being put on the revenge factor. Love him or hate him, this Sheriff kicks ass! So this edit removes a lot of the silly dialog which is a big plus and I love the ending that gets right to the point (I won’t ruin it for anyone). So I don’t want to give anything away but I just wanted to comment on the work put into this edit which is seemless and very impressive. I really prefer this version over Zombie’s because it does make me hate the Firefly family. I’m a big fan of films from the 70′s and this new ending reminds me of a lot of those movies. This disc also has some great extras like a commentary (Tranzor shares lots of great info!), a black and white version of the film (which I haven’t watched in it’s entireity yet) & the DEATH WISH 3 game which I tried a couple of times but got a beat down by a bunch of thugs in a prison cell. As I already mentioned, I’m not a huge fan of this RZ film but I do like it and this new version is much better because it removes lots of stupid dialog and makes us fear the Firefly family which is what Zombie should have done to begin with. A+
