Fun remake...perfect for fans of blood, guts, and boobs! (by 2reelers)
Tim Sullivan's remake of TWO THOUSAND MANIACS, to me, was nothing but fun from start to finish. From the first kill to the last, this film rocked. Like EVIL DEAD 2, this is more of a comedy/horror, which Sullivan himself describes as "Splatstick"...sure it's over-the-top, but it's supposed to be, and that is what makes it so much fun. Robert Englund and Lin Shaye are a blast as "Mayor Buckman" and "Granny Boone", but I must say there were some excellent casting choices for everyone involved...the group of gorgeous girls who play both hapless victims <more>
and charming? Southern Belles...Giuseppe Andrews, who lends his unique style to the film...Dylan Edrington who plays the perfect smart-ass...and the actors portraying incidental characters like "Hucklebilly" and "Lester" really help add to the film's humor and creepiness.While some are complaining about the few off color jokes the film offers, and these might get some people's panties in a bunch, this is not a racist picture. Personally, I found the jokes to be pretty funny Malcom, a black character, is told to "wait just a cotton picking' minute" at one point in the film . Others are criticizing the acting...I thought the acting was fine. Not Shakespearian by any means, but remember, this isn't GHANDI and it won't be nominated for an Academy Award and exactly how many of your favorite films have been? Bottom line is enjoy this for what it is, a throwback to good old-fashioned blood n guts, T & A horror.
After a run of awful remakes we have at last something that will go down in history as an all time classic!2001 maniacs is a non stop thrill ride and with masses of respect to mr lewis,tim sullivan has done a grand job.I am a huge fan of the original so was understandably a little apprehensive when i learnt they were making this movie.Believe me there is no need to worry it's an awesome movie!There are plenty of blood and guts to keep us horror enthusiasts happy and it is certainly comedy induced.When watching this i found myself enjoying it certainly as much as the original without any <more>
doubt.Whether it is released in the cinema uncut i do not know,my fingers are crossed! I wonder what could come next....possibly Blood Feast?I hope so.Does anyone fancy a spit roast?
Wait 'til the MPAA gets to rate this! (by reelcobra-1)
This is the most violent thrill-ride ever filmed. Non-stop T & A. The hottest chicks ever seen. Must be seen on the big screen for full effect. The Montreal Fantasia premiere was like a rock concert. I have never seen more people standing during a movie without pissing off those behind them.Lions Gate needs to put this in theaters by Halloween, because 2001 Maniacs will live longer than The Rocky Horror Picture Show in midnight screenings for the next 20 years. It's that good.Only a true internet nerd/geek, sitting in his room in his mother's house, calling in sick to his security <more>
2001 Maniacs Delivers The Goods! (by JoeHorror2006)
When you go through the long list of films in horror that could use a major overhaul, the films of Herschell Gordon Lewis are the last films that tend to come to mind. Today, Hollywood's exploitation consists of a PG-13 rating and Jennifer Aniston and they want films with a wider fanbase established. It just doesn't seem likely that's there's ever going to be a bunch of suits sitting around a conference table, pitching ideas and coming to the conclusion that Two Thousand Maniacs must be remade.Thank God for Tim Sullivan.It's so damn refreshing to know somebody out there is <more>
hearing the fans. Sullivan's 2001 Maniacs is set to prove to the mental midgets making cookie cutter horror for my little sister that horror fans really do want original, adult horror.Three college screw-ups head out on Spring break in search of a bit of fun and relaxation when they hit a detour that lands them smack dab in the middle of a sleepy little southern town by the name of Pleasant Valley. The town is a' jumpin' as the townsfolk prepare for their Guts & Glory Celebration! They're greeted by the boisterous Mayor Buckman Robert Englund and asked to stick around as the Guts & Glory Celebration's guests of honor! The three decide to stay in town when a few girls they met at a gas station show up. The two carloads of college kids aren't the only guests though as a motorcycle roars into town with Malcolm Mushond Lee and Leah Bianca Smith aboard. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that a black guy and Asian girl are the unwelcome guests! Pleasant Valley is a quiet little town full of smiles and hot freaky babes but there's only one problem one by one the guests are disappearing and being dispatched in horrifying ways including being drawn and quartered and drinking acid from a hose! If that wasn't bad enough we get a long steel pike up the ass! As guests start dropping off like flies we're left with brave Alexander Lee Jay Gillespie and his gal, Joey Marla Malcolm . A final confrontation ensues between the two, Mayor Buckman, Granny Boone Lin Shaye and the townsfolk! Will they escape Pleasant Valley? Will they become the main course?! Will poor Cory Matthew Carey finally get some from the kissing cousins? The town of Pleasant Valley will not rest until the slaughter of two thousand and one of the townsfolk are avenged on the Northerners! Watch the movie! Do yourself a favor, buy some beer, grab some chili cheese corn chips, give little Suzy and Sarah a few bucks to go see Stay Alive, put the dog out and send the wife to the store because this is one of those movies only a horror fan can truly appreciate! We get blood, boobs, gore, comedy, guys chasing sheep, kids killing cats and super hottie cousins "boning" each other! The comedy is actually funny the gore is actually well gory! The T&A is top notch its Christa Campbell guys! and the acting was excellent.Not only do we get a damn good horror film but we get a DVD that actually puts most "Special Editions" to shame! This release is packed with extras! I would like to point out to readers though that no matter how hard a DVD company tries to convince you subtitles and closed captions are not bonus features.I'd like to point out a few facts as well for starters; Eli Roth is back to reprise his role from Cabin Fever as wonky drifter Justin Eli Roth and his good buddy Dr. Mambo the dog is back as well! Eagle eyed viewers may also spot Tim Sullivan hammering on a coffin and Scott Spiegel Evil Dead 1 & 2, The Dead Next Door as one of the hillbilly banjo singers that constantly wander about the movie! I'm also officially going on record as having said that I consider Lin Shaye to be a hottie. There, I said it! So, for those of you looking for a damn good film, run, don't walk, to your nearest Best Buy and purchase 2001 Maniacs. Don't hesitate! Remember to keep your eyes peeled on Sullivan's upcoming horror flick, Driftwood!
I am huge Hershall Gordan Lewis fan, always have been. Going from Blood Feast to his newest Blood Feast 2 I have seen just about all of his films. So when I heard that a remake of 2000 Maniacs was on its way I was a bit skeptical. As well I should be since most remakes of classic horror films are horrible and not worth the time because you just get angry watching them. This movie on the other hand rather entertained me and definitely has re-watch value to it.The storyline is roughly the same except we have several college boys, 3 other people that I am guessing are on vacation wasn't <more>
paying close enough attention and a biker and his girl. So obviously the deathtoll is a little higher in this movie. Robert England does a great job at playing the Mayor of Pleasant Valley and there are a few other actors that did a farely decent job as well. I will admit, when I first put this movie in my DVD player and the first 15 minutes of the movie passed I became really worried that I had waisted my money. At first it seems like a typical teeny bopper slasher film with a bunch of sex crazed idiots who you give a rats arse about. But when that first gore scene comes in I found myself saying "Holy S***!". I was caught I must admit. I was a little bit upset with the choice of music in the movie. It was kind of like they mixed some modern crap music in with the folk music of the original. They did what sounds like a bad remix of The Souths Going To Rise Again but I just ignored it really. One more thing I wish they had added in also was just one more remake of the scene with the guy in the barrel that they push down hill with all the nails in it. But oh well.Anyway, if you are a HG Lewis fan and are really skeptical of seeing this movie I hope you won't be disappointed. It really does become rather enjoyable and once when the victims go to Pleasant Valley it is a really fun ride. 9/10 stars
I loved this movie. It was funny and the death scenes were just freaking awesome! I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. Good stuff right here. The people of Pleasant Valley were just cruel and very unusual. You were either on the killers side or the victims, whichever way you go the movie is still great. The ending was funny and gory. 2001 Maniacs was definitely a good rebel south horror movie. 2001 Maniacs follows it's original, Two Thousand Maniacs, very well. Stayed very true. The Twilight Zone twist was pretty good, so look out for that. The acting was mediocre, but <more>
overall the movie was great. 2001 Maniacs is a fun movie, you'll enjoy it.
I saw "2001 Manacs" last night at a midnight screening at the Fantasia Festival and I really enjoyed it ... so did the 300-400 other people in the theater with me. Tim Sullivan and Christa Campbell introduced the movie and held a Q&A session after I had to leave, it was 2am but I'm sure they were pleased with the audience response. It was great to see Robert Englund again, he always does a great psycho. The movie was funny and gory ... sure the plot wasn't Oscar caliber, but anyone looking for that is going to the wrong movie. If you want to see a good horror movie, <more>
the real 'guts & glory' kind, this is the movie for you. I feel confident in recommending this movie and plan on picking up the DVD especially since the version that was screened hasn't gone to the ratings board yet, so the DVD will probably be the only place to see this exact version .
"Over the top" is just scratching the surface... (by horrorfan921)
Those already familiar with the original will know what they've gotten themselves into as our main characters follow a bogus Detour signjust after narrowly avoiding Justin and Professor Mambo, character favorites from CABIN FEVER who are trying to hitch a rideand arrive in the town of Pleasant Valley, whose residents are hard at work preparing for their weekend "Guts and Glory Jubilee." Soon the Confederate knife fodder arrive with Yankee good looks and are declared "guests of honor" by the one-eyed Mayor Buckman, played pitch-perfect by everybody's favorite <more>
sadist, Robert Freddy Krueger Englund. But what else can you expect when there's a population of, you guessed it, 2001 maniacs, that is! What follows, surprisingly given our times and political climate, is refreshingly vulgar, completely un-PC and, much like the original, an expected excuse for extremely sadistic humor and gore. Where the first film now seems boring and slow, the new version is upbeat and well-paced. Happily and sadly, the first and only fully clothed female victim to get tied up and quartered by horses is the film's only waste of T in a movie overflowing with T&A. Many viewers may be offended by the black humor and straight-up racist jokes that pepper the film's dialogue, but those of you can rest assured that everyone gets their due by the end. It'll be interesting to see how the red states will react to such a searing and scabrous document of the South. Englund seems to imbue Mayor Buckman with a well-judged imitation of President Bush, and even the lives of his two sons in the film appear to closely ape those of the Bush daughters.Longtime Lewis fans will be ecstatic that much, if not all, of his score from the original has been transferred to the new film by way of musical narrators Johnny Legend and his strumming sidekick Scott Spiegel. Somewhat in the vein of THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY, these musical country bumpkins pop up from time to time, like Sullivan's version of a Greek Chorus, hinting at the dangers to soon befall our ethnically and morally diverse blue state victims. "The South will rise again!" The supporting cast is stocked with many fine new actors and veterans of the genre. Fans will enjoy the cool seething evil of Giuseppe Andrews Fever's Deputy Winston as he kills Yankee belles with kindness, and Lin Shaye fast on her way to becoming a middle-aged scream queen after her role in the haunting DEAD END , who stars as Granny Boone, the murderous matriarch of Pleasant Valley. One day, this fine actress will hopefully be cast in a role that capitalizes on her real-life beauty and sassy charm; in the meantime, she here has a ball pushing the envelope, as when she sucks the red gore off a spear protruding from the gullet of a hapless victim! Newcomer Jay Gillespie evokes a REAL GENIUS or TOP GUN-era Val Kilmer with stern good looks and a thrill for the action around him. The rest of the MANIACS cast seem to be having fun with the bloody lowbrow horror and are in on the joke, all ready to "take one for the team" and die in a less-than-flattering manner. As each member is dispatched, you can tell they were having a great time taking it to the next level. This is a movie where "over the top" is just scratching the surface. Just ask Peaches, the Southern belle who wears a "retainer" that would make the shark in JAWS envious when she "services" a good ol' boy! He doesn't last long. By the third reel, characters are walking around town all alone for no good reason, so we know they aren't going to end up much better than their missing brethren. Then Sullivan and crew punch up the action a bit with a scene that doesn't necessarily match the vibe of everything we've seen thus far, but has a maggot-worthy moment that makes up for the switch in tone. If you're looking to get scared, this is not exactly the right film, but if you're familiar with Lewis and his brand of goremongering, you'll squirm, screech and then writhe with laughter. 2001 MANIACS has all the elements of a good time yet still raises a dialogue among viewers that not many have had the balls to address in horror, or film-making in general, since the '70s.
I have never seen the original, so I can't compare the two films, but 2001 Maniacs was one of the crudest, raunchiest, bloodiest films I have seen in years and that's a compliment.With it's tongue firmly planted in cheek, this film was a hoot...and a holler...from start to finish. Previous comments have giving you the plot, so I won't rehash it. But I sat through the film...alternately laughing my *ss off for how far it went...and being amazed that they got away with it. Over the top gore...check. Gratuitous nudity...check. Southern stereotypes turned on their head...check. <more>
Guy in love with sheep...check.If you're looking for a bloody, fun movie that's guaranteed to make you go, "Oh my God, I can't believe they just went there," this is the film for you.
