3 From Hell

Director: Rob Zombie
Year Released: 2019
Rating: 1.5

Mass murderers The Devil's Rejects (Sid Haig, Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley) - Zombie's nod to the Manson Family - finally get caught and put in prison: Captain Spaulding is executed (it's one of Haig's final roles) but the others manage to escape and wind up in Mexico, where they think they're safe but (of course) are not.  The plot is super thin, but Zombie's never in much of a hurry to get anywhere (he's too enamored with visual effects and abusing slow-motion) - the first hour is him fixated on recording his real-life wife acting like a hysterical psychopath (which is draining in itself), but when it transitions to a very stereotypical version of Mexico out of From Dusk Till Dawn - hookers, dirty feet, Lucha Libre masks, bottles of tequila - it becomes (comparatively) more meditative and less frantic ... until the final shootout.  For being a 54-year-old, Rob (born Robert Cummings) writes dialogue like a 12-year-old who just learned all the cuss-words: I've heard almost all his albums (and a couple of them) and not even they sound this puerile.
