~ Otis B. Driftwood
I am the Devil, and I am here to do the Devil's work.
~ Otis' most famous quote.

Otis B. Driftwood is the main antagonist of House of 1000 Corpses, and the protagonist villain of The Devil's Rejects and 3 From Hell. Otis is the most depraved and violent member of the Firefly family, a sadist who makes the freaks for Captain Spaulding's museum.

On two occasions, he wears his victim's skin as a costume and fights with Spaulding for control of the family. Although Otis is albino in the first film, writer/director Rob Zombie 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.

He is portrayed by Bill Moseley, who also portrayed Luigi Largo in Repo! The Genetic Opera and Chop Top Sawyer in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

Personality

Otis is the most violent member of the Firefly Family and probably the most evil, which is saying something. He tortures, rapes, kills, and cuts off his victim's skin and wears them as costumes.

He is not without humanity, however; he shares a bond of love and loyalty with his family, particularly his adoptive sister Baby, of whom he is fiercely protective. His relationship with his "brother" Captain Spaulding is more combative; in the first film, he calls Spaulding an "old bitch", while in the second film, they frequently argue.

Nevertheless, he cares very much for his family and will go to great lengths to make sure they are not arrested.

Trivia

  • In the song "Pussy Liquor" the lyrics suggest that Otis' biological father's name is named Dane.
  • He is named after the Groucho Marx character in the 1935 film A Night At The Opera.
