This film absolutely reeks. It stinks to high heaven. Even as a fan of bad movies, this had no redeeming qualities.
I feel robbed.
The film is cheap, and I don't just mean budget-wise. The writing is cheap. Heck, the writing is below cheap. To say it's sophomoric is an insult to sophomoric writers everywhere. The directing is cheap, dreadful and uncreative. The acting is... It was so bad there's no point in even describing it. On the whole, it was like Tim Sullivan and his friends had an extra $58.60 around and decided to make a film. They gathered a lot of ninth-rate fetish show performers and wanna-be actors who were turned down for roles in YouTube fan films, and they were able to blackmail Bill Moseley with something to get him on-board. They collected set pieces from the trash dump after the circus left town, and then they wrote a script on the back of a Waffle House receipt. Yes, it was that offendingly awful and retched.
After watching this contemptible farce of a movie I developed a new appreciation for Uwe Boll and all those Sci Fi Original Motion pictures I used to think were crap.
The problem with this movie is not just the incredibly low production values, but that they turned this movie into a complete farce rather than trying to make any pretensions of it having any horror in it at all, even in a tertiary manner.
While a sequel to "2001 Maniacs" it doesn't even keep the mythology intact. We go from a group of ghosts haunting a cemetery full of people slaughtered during "The Civil War", who can manifest around the time of their deaths each year to claim victims, with each death bringing them closer to being able to pass on, to the ridiculous concept of these same ghosts somehow manifesting permanantly and driving around, pitching tents, and looking for victims.
Add to this ridiculous sequences like faux-music videos being performed (complete with song and record text in the corner), and it's just not all that entertaining. If you liked the original "2001 Maniacs" this is not "more of the same" this is just plain out silly... and in a bad way.
In short, I recommend avoiding this movie like the plague. "2001 Maniacs" had some potential to be turned into a decent genere-hybrid franchise, one that could have obtained a decent cult following. This atrocity has pretty much murdered any hopes of that happening.
