3 From Hell (2019)

Following the climatic end to The Devil’s Rejects it turns out that our three favourite psychopaths Otis (Bill Moseley), Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), and Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) are still alive “despite taking twenty bullets a piece.” Their story since that time is told to us over grainy grindhouse like news footage with a reporter commenting that “no one would have thought it possible that a human body could survive that.”

Since their arrests The Devil Rejects have grown in cult like status and are seen by some as folk heroes against the establishment. All behind bars on death row, we follow more news footage montages that show how some of the public are now on their side (“Free the Three”) and they now have celebrity status.

I’m just a clown dancing to the sins of mankind.” – Captain Spaulding

Unfolding events across an awesome soundtrack include Captain Spaulding (delivering some of his best lines yet) being taken out early in the movie when his death sentence is carried out. He is basically replaced by the previously unmentioned long-lost brother Winslow Foxworth “Foxy” Coltrane (played by Richard Brake – The Night King in Game of Thrones, Joe Chill in Batman Begins). The reason behind Spaulding’s shocking early death would seem to link with Haig’s poor health that resulted in his recent sad passing. We then see events unfold as Foxy saves Otis. Their plan to spring Baby, and then…

Verdict: 6/10. With an awesome soundtrack and the craziness and violence you would expect from this franchise, 3 From Hell delivers to its captive audience. Will it draw it any new fans, I’m unsure, but it remains both gruesome and funny at its core and try to the vision it has grown and developed from. With awesome cameos from Clint Howard as Mr. Baggy Britches the party clown, Dee Wallace as prison guard Greta, Danny Trejo, and the always reliable Emilio Rivera each scene delivers both unnerving uncomfortable action as well as some sort of sick humour you know you shouldn’t be laughing at. A welcome addition to the franchise, whilst not the strongest, does carry its own weight. Sadly the only thing missing can never be replaced. R.I.P. Sid.
