‘2001 Maniacs.’ You could sort of leave the review there. If the title alone doesn’t tell you everything you’ll need to know about the film then nothing will. It’s a film like ‘Snakes on the Plane’ where you should know whether you’ll like it or not before you even sit down. Basically, it’s a pretty ludicrous premise – a handful of those annoyingly good-looking American teens end up in the wrong town at the wrong town where – guess what – they come a cropper up against 2001 complete nut-jobs.

The stars, i.e. those we’re supposed to root for, are pretty run-of-the-mill. They’re basically there to be dismembered in as many gruesome ways possible. The real stars are the people we hope we never have to meet (and yet still enjoy seeing on screen). The town is filled by Americans from the ‘North versus South’ era of U.S. history and they’re not too pleased with the way the war turned out. Therefore, now led by the ever excellent (and possibly insane) Robert Englund and Lin Shaye, they’re looking to reap revenge on those stuck-up ‘Northerners.’

It’s effectively a slasher film, only the town is basically one great home to slashers. You don’t watch this sort of film for its character development or deep and meaningful story arcs. You watch it because it’s daft and silly (and pretty damn gory – it does have some pretty inventive death scenes). If you’re into your gore-fests then you’ll probably enjoy it simply on Englund and Shaye’s performances alone.

Just put your brain on hold and appreciate it for being a very low-brow and completely twisted piece of entertainment. But, whatever you do, don’t go near the sequel. This is one film that’s best left on its own.

Horny teenagers on spring break end up getting diverted to an old rundown town filled with hip singing, twisting dancers and an extremely happy jovial community who look like they have just stepped out of the 19th Century. We get the usual fare for our soon to be slaughtered teenagers. The handsome jock, the nerd, the token black guy, the beautiful ladies......

Robert Englund and Lin Shaye star in prominent roles as the town weirdos- both of A Nightmare on Elm Street and a super quick eye will catch Eli Roth and Kane Hodder who played Jason Voorhees. Gore fans will love this, as the kids are killed in some inventive ways, the best one being a woman who is dismembered after having her limbs tied to a moving horse, yeek!

Apart from the gore and decent enough ending there isn't much in between. The characters are unlikable, they have no depth and you watch just to see the next kill. The script is non existent, and you leave thinking there goes yet another good opportunity. The film obviously isn't taken itself too seriously, but if so then you need some lines in here that will make your audience go from laughter back down to tension. That never happens. You end up feeling that even at 84 mins the movie is about 30 mins too long.

A note to the BBFC- having a woman kiss a woman is no right to suggest there is strong sex scenes in this movie. Pathetic in 2014.

Based on an earlier film from 1964, with Robert Englund as mayor of a town in the Confederate south ravaged by Union soldiers and burning for revenge beyond the grave. The movie also features Giuseppe Andrews from Cabin Fever & Independence Day, the deaths are gruesome, including death from drinking acid, torn apart by horses, crushing underneath a huge bell or what about being skewered through the executive cat flap for a giant kebab.The Pleasant Valley Singers who follow their guests around playing ukuleles are funny too, It's not the gruesomeness you see in Wrong Turn or Hostel, but still there. Some good lines, Andrews as Harper says to his victim, my Daddy proposed to my mama right here and his victim replies "My daddy proposed to my moma in the back of a '69 chevy". Well worth adding to the collection.

After seeing this film advertised I knew I had to see it, and unlike some other reviews suggest I personally did really enjoy this film. Like most horror film attempts this is sheer comedy with a laugh every second at the ridiculous full on over theatrical redneck cannibals that will have you rolling in your seat with laughter. There are some really gory but funny deaths as well which sparked a conversation with my mates at the end about which would you choose if you had no other options than to be killed via A) been skewed up the ass and out thought the mouth, or B) having all your limbs pulled off by horses.

This film may fail on the scare factor but its is quality entertainment which is what a good film is all about and has to be one of the strangest and most unique films I have ever seen. Watch this film its BRILLIANT!!

Cant believe I watched the full movie. My dad loves it and has seen it too many times.
On his recommendation I gave it a viewing. The DVD was for him after I'd seen it. Worth one watch but be warned you will look at the countryside differently.

A remake of the Herschell Gordon Lewis gore-fest, this is low on outlandish gore yet high on elaborate death sequences, high on cult performers but low on good acting, with plenty of indecency and campy one-liners, stupid moments that border on embarrassing, and horror without any scares.

The plot will be familiar to anyone who has watched any horror film in the past fifty years - a group of friends on a road trip become stranded in a strange town with stranger inhabitants and have to fight for their survival. It opens like any number of 90s, early 2000s films introducing a group of detestable caricatures on their last day of University before heading off for Spring Break. On the way the meet more annoying stereotypes before taking a detour and ending up in Pleasant Valley, a town which is apparently stranded in Southern Civil War era cartoonishness. We have buxom milkmaids, inbred hicks, Huckleberry Finn-alikes, good old boys, howdee y'all housewives, and all the rest of it. Rather than immediately leaving, the group decides to stay the night and enjoy some free Southern hospitality, and possibly boobs. Before long limbs are being torn from torsos, shlongs are being bitten off, and bodies are being squished, all in the name of.... zombies/vampires/ghosts/torture freaks/revenge? It doesn't really become clear until the finals scenes, and by that point we've fainted due to the inanity of it all.

Every cliche in the Great Big Book Of Cliches is here, with no attempt to inject any surprises, tension, or ounce of interest. Some may say that's the point - it's simply a remake of a silly grindhouse film. What's the point then? Why not just go back and watch the original?
