Most psychotic family: 'The Devil’s Rejects's' Firefly clan or 'Texas Chainsaw’s' Sawyers?

Everyone’s family has a little bit of the crazy in them. Parents aren’t doing their job unless they’re embarrassing the absolute crap out of you. However, some families can get, shall we say, extreme. Take the Firefly clan from “The Devil’s Rejects,” who remain terrifying despite having roughly three teeth between the five of them. Or the Sawyers from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” cannibals that love to include their nearly dead grandfather at the dinner table. Who’s more psychotic?

What do you think of when you hear the word “country”? A kindly old woman baking pie for her nine grandchildren? A polite gentleman who calls people “sir” and “ma’am” at the drop of a ten-gallon hat? Bud Lxight? Or how’s about the Firefly family, who wreak havoc across Texas with some of the unholiest of murders that have taken place in cinema? Thanks, Rob Zombie.

Appearing first in “House of 1,000 Corpses” before snagging their own film, “The Devil’s Rejects” (and now getting an even more recent installment), the Firefly family consists of Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Otis (Bill Moseley), Mother (Karen Black), and Tiny (Matthew McGrory). They’re the reason why people don’t take the backwaters roads as a shortcut in the first place, the kind that are more likely to mutilate your body into some gross mermaid creature as opposed to offer you some of grandpappy’s moonshine. Gross? You got that right.

The thing about the Firefly family is that they really don’t care about, like, anything. Their make is of blood and violence, a struggle that they view as fighting some sort of oppressive power. Basically, it’s an excuse to try to break the law in as many ways possible, like a bunch of overgrown, incredibly savage babies. Get that image out of your head.

The sixties and seventies have a pervasive yet slightly inaccurate depiction of being the time of peace and love. Why “inaccurate”? Well, for one thing, have you never read a history book? For another, some of the most effed up horror movies of all times were released within those two decades, one of them being this little film called “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”  

#SawyersCraziest

The original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” found a girl and her brother heading down to their grandfather’s house to check up on him with a few of their friends. That’s basically the sweetest part of the whole movie. From then on out they’re pursued, tortured, and killed by a family of hillbillies called the Sawyers, whose most terrifying member—Leatherface—wears what’s definitely human flesh as a mask. Oh, and he really likes chainsaws. Minor detail, though.

Believe it or not, the rest of the Sawyers aren’t that sane, either. They prefer eating human flesh above chicken or meat (veganism’s not really a Texas thing in general, anyway), and also spend their free time grave robbing when they’re not terrorizing anyone who rolls through their land. Even their mostly dead grandfather likes to sip on blood every now and then. At least they keep the tradition of family dinners going strong.
