|~ Otis B. Driftwood|
Otis B. Driftwood is one of the main antagonists of House of 1000 Corpses and one of the main protagonist villains of The Devil's Rejects. Otis is the most depraved and violent member of the Firefly family. He is a sadist who makes the freaks for Captain Spaulding's museum.
He is portrayed by Bill Moseley, who also portrayed Luigi Largo in Repo! The Genetic Opera.
On two occasions he wore his victims skin as a costume and fights with Spaulding for control of the family. Although Otis is albino in the first film, Rob didn't think it would fit the style and realism of the sequel. Otis is not a biological member of the Firefly family. Gloria "Mama" Firefly adopted him, but not legally.
In the song "Pussy Liquor" the lyrics suggest that Otis' biological father's name is Dane.
He is named after the Groucho Marx character in the film, A Night At The Opera.
Otis is the most violent member of the Firefly Family and probably the most evil, he tortures, rapes, kills, and cuts off his victims skin and wears them as costumes. However despite all this, he does care for Baby, he and her share a strong sibling bond, despite that they occasionally curse at each other. His relationship with Captain Spaulding is somewhat questionable, as in the first film, Otis called Spaulding an "old b**ch." And in the second film they often butted heads eith one another. He also appears to have some little patience with Tiny and Granpa Hugo as he gives Tiny a glare for letting a captive leave, and he berates Grandpa Hugo for not helping them with the murders. However despite these traits he cares very much for his familyand will go thorugh lenghts to make sure they are not arrested. Otis (along with the rest of his family) never explain why they torture and kill people, so its possible that they do it because its fun.
- In the first movie Otis was albino and clean-shaven. But in the sequel he was a regular Caucasian and had a mustache and beard; Rob Zombie did this because he felt Otis being albino didn't fit the style of the sequel.
- Otis is very similar to the following villains:
- Trevor Phillips from the Rockstar Game Grand Theft Auto V. They are both violent, psychotic men who kill whoever gets in their way and they care about ther friends and family. While Otis only cares for his family and no one else.
- Vaas Montenegro from the Ubisoft Game Far Cry 3. Both men are vicious, psychotic, perverted, and violent men who torture and kill people for amusement. Although Vaas sells people as slaves for money while Otis just kills people. Also Vaas is possibly more dangerous than Otis because Vaas has an army of pirates at his disposal while Otis has help from his family.
