The Devil’s Rejects (2005)

Like most of Rob Zombie’s films, “The Devil’s Rejects,” which is arguably his finest, shot around Southern California.  The opening standoff at the Firefly house was shot at Sable Ranch in Santa Clarita, California, which is not open to the public.  Quite a number of buildings at Sable Ranch were lost, due to a wildfire in 2016.  The Firefly house, however, was one of the buildings which survived the fires.  In case you’re wondering, the Firefly house is not very visible from the road, if you were to drive up to the ranch entrance.

Captain Spaulding’s house can be found in Lancaster. No address seems to show up on GPS, but the house can be found on E Ave J, between 60th St E and 65th St E. Exact GPS coordinates are listed below.

On the run, Baby, played by Sheri Moon Zombie, makes a phone call to Captain Spaulding from this gas station.  It’s never seen in a wide shot in the film, which is why it may not look immediately recognizable.  The gas station is located right beside the motel location seen later in the film.

Otis and Baby make their way to the “Kahiki Palms Motel,” where some unsuspecting guests have the unfortunate luck of crossing their paths.  The real location is the Club Ed movie set, out in Lancaster, California, in an area of mostly desert terrain.  The building is not an actual running business and is used strictly for filming purposes today.  This too is private property and closed to the public.  However, unlike Sable Ranch, these locations can be seen quite easily from the road.

Another angle of the motel, including the rooms to the left, where many scenes with the hotel guests were shot.  Club Ed has been in many films, including “Nothing To Lose,” “Rubber” and “Eye Of The Storm.”

After Captain Spaulding’s truck runs out of fuel, he stops at Buck’s Grab ‘N Go, where he steals the vehicle of a mother and her son. The same location appeared in the film “The Last Starfighter.”

LOCATION: 9411 Soledad Canyon Rd, Santa Clarita, CA 91390

The film’s climactic standoff with the police was filmed on a closed section of Golden State Hwy in Castaic. We’ve provided GPS coordinates below.

LOCATION: Golden State Hwy, Castaic, CA 91384 (GPS coordinates: 34°37’21.6″N, 118°44’40.6″W)

The police set up a barricade at this bridge, which runs over Piru Creek.

Here’s a wider view of where the car speeds towards the police.

While this last shot is not seen in the film, this is the furthest point you can drive on Golden State Hwy before the road is blocked. The road to get to this point from the 5 freeway is a bit rough, but it is also a scenic drive, free from traffic. It is permissible to continue on foot or bike from this point and its about a half mile to reach where the scene was filmed. The path is flat and a modest walk for most.
