It begins with a good old-fashioned gunfight, as the police come a-callin' to the homestead of the homicidal Firefly clan, with destructive results. Before long, Mama (Leslie Easterbrook) is captured, and Otis and Baby (Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie, respectively) are on the run, seeking help from Baby's dad, Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig). While hiding out, Otis and Baby amuse themselves by torturing, raping, and killing. Meanwhile, the lawman on their trail, Sheriff Wydell (William Forsythe), becomes steadily more and more obsessive, seeing himself as a vigilante ordained by God. If you're the sort who likes having at least one well-intentioned character to root for, go watch a John Cusack movie. Here you'll see bad people fight even worse people. The cast is full of cool cult actors past and present, and the movie is great at what it does. It's also brutal as hell, and not everyone will have the stomach for it.
