Movie Info

Hostel director Eli Roth's genre-friendly Raw Nerve film group makes its gore-soaked splash with director Tim Sullivan's kitchy remake of Hershell Gordon Lewis' southern-fried splatter-fest. A drunken group of hard partying college-kids are in for a Spring Break they'll never forget when they take a tragic detour through the small southern town of Pleasant Valley. Greeted by the overzealous mayor (Robert Englund) and promised a wild time at the town's annual barbecue celebration, the

...riddled with precisely the sort of unconvincing and subpar acting that one generally associates with low-budget horror flicks.

...on a level playing field, Sullivan's remake is a better film [than the original] in every regard...Not for grandma, but loads of crude fun otherwise.

2001 Maniacs is a film that had plenty of potential of being a terrific and memorable horror comedy. Unfortunately this film misses the mark, and ends up being a tiresome tedious affair with no redeeming qualities. This is simply put a bad movie and it just fails in every sense. I am actually surprised that this film didn't deliver anything worthwhile with its interesting premise. However, it was a pitiful movie that had some poor acting, and considering there was Bill Mosely and Robert England, two veterans of the genre, this one simply didn't offer anything good for horror fans. I thought that this was a poor horror film, and yes, I do get that it is supposed to be ridiculous, but the filmmakers could have tried to at least make something good and memorable. This film was bad and it was a waste of good horror actors' talents in my opinion. The only scene that was good to see was the part where one of the girls was getting sawed in half by a table saw. However not even that juicy bit of gore was enough to redeem this poorly thought out movie. If you want a good killer redneck horror comedy that is over the top, but very entertaining, watch Trailer Park of Terror instead. 2001 Maniacs is yet another failed remake that just misses the mark. This is a horrible film that fails to really entertain, and you'd be better off watching something else. The idea was good, but the execution was very poor and lazy that the result is a badly acted film that just ends up being a waste of time.

This movie was completely out of its mind. The plot is outrageous as well as the characters. Just a fun movie to watch. I loved Robert Englund and his character of a cyclops confederate. It's reminiscent of b-horrors from the 70s and 80s, where the soul purpose is to entertain.

This is a remake/sequel to the 1964 Herschell Gordon Lewis film. This isn't a film for everyone but if your in the right frame of mind for it the film is alot of fun. Anyway,while traveling on vacation to Florida, the college friends Anderson Lee (Jay Gillespie), Cory Jones (Matthe Carey) and Nelson Elliot (Dylan Edrington) meet the gorgeous Joey (Marla Leigh Malcom) and Kat (Gina Marie Heekin) in a gas station traveling with their gay friend Ricky (Brian Gross) to the same location. Anderson gives his phone number to Joey in Florida. The teenagers decide to take a shortcut and they find a detour through an old road leading to the Southern town of Pleasant Valley. They are welcomed by the local Mayor Buckman (Robert Englund) as guests of honor together with Joey, Kat, Ricky and biker Malcolm (Mushond Lee) and his girlfriend Leah (Bianca Smith) are invited to stay for their Guts and Glory Jubilee with free lodging, meals and booze at Granny Boone's hotel, and dancing, games and a mouth-watering barbecue in the climax of the jubilee. The group accepts the invitation but sooner they find who will supply the meat for the feast.

"2001 Maniacs" is a movie that is sure to become a cult film, gore, black humor, gorgeous actresses and an excellent twist in the end with help make it rise to cult film status. I really did enjoy this film alot, and I thought it had a lot of funny and witty lines. Robert England is amazing in the role of the revengeful southern mayor, giving a perfect touch of humor to his sadistic and friendly character. In the end, "those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it". Like I said before, its not for everyone but its worth checking out if your in the mood for a fun and gory horror film.
