Ultimate DVD - 10/01/2006 3 stars out of 5 -- "This film has gained something of a cult following...thanks to its no-holds-barred blend of tongue-in-cheek gory social comedy."
A remake of Herschell Gordon Lewis's 1960s gory classic, TWO THOUSAND MANIACS! (which was inspired by, of all things, BRIGADOON), 2001 MANIACS follows a group of Northern college kids lured into the Southern town of Pleasant Valley to take part in the "Guts and Glory Jubilee," a celebration of the glory days of Dixie. Soon enough, they realize that the "guts" might turn out to be their own, as the crazed Southerners, led by Mayor Buckman (Robert Englund), have planned festivities that involve killing and consuming the Yankee kids. A mix of 1960s splatterfest and 1980s sex-romp, 2001 MANIACS has enough macabre absurdity to offend almost everyone-and delight horror fans everywhere.
