One of the worst movies i've seen in a long time....The first 2001 was ok not a masterpiece but was fun enough to be good.This one just seem so low budget and low rent.The acting is the worst ive seen in years and Bill Moseley got to be one of the worst actors around at the moment..Just stay clear of this turkey at all costs...I just cant believe this was made be the director of the first 2001 Maniacs..
Poor follow up to a well made remake. A few gory moments and some juvenile laughs done Troma style but its poor audio, bad editing and unlikeable cast bury this one deep.
An absolute failure of a film. The first 2001 Maniacs was an enjoyable film. Gruesome, humorous, but most of all fun. It was also a well-made film. This is a completely different story. A hundred steps back from the previous film. Sullivan returns, but his budget and skills do not. The first major problem is that this is shot on digital. It looks fucking disgusting. Like a home movie. Every shot is flat, lifeless, with a very limited amount of artistic imagery or thought put into it. There's no clever use of lighting or color, just point the camera and shoot. The acting is painful at best. It even has Jar-Jar Binks in it. The original wasn't going to win Oscars, but at least they carried the film through to its conclusion. The replacement cast are mostly Z grade. Only Mosely captures a bit of entertainment. Harper, a supposedly good looking character, is now a hideous guy, and the sheep is no longer a real sheep, it's a stuffed animal. Failing to get Englund back is one thing, failing to get a real sheep...? It's a horrible experience this film so just skip it. Watch 2001 Maniacs, as this film can't even afford a village full of people.
