4.0 out of 5 stars 2001 Maniacs - A Great Remake! February 20, 2006
By Steve67
The film starts out like any other , basically a group of friends and fellow peers take a wrong detour and end up in strange southern town,where all the towns people are dressed as if they where stuck in a time-warp of the 1800s. Of course the travelers decide to stay the night with promises a grand celebration to be held shortly after. Sadly the group is unaware that they'll be the main course of the feast. It does'nt take long before members of group are seperated and picked off one at a time by the townies, each reulting in a horrific, gore-tastic death; speaking of which , one of my favorite deaths probaly have to be one of the first ones involving horses and the tearing of limbs. When the movie isn't focusing on the younglin's getting themselves killed, we're treated to an abundance of boobs and campy humor to keep the pace going. The original was slow paced and boring at times but that not the case here. When it all comes down to it, Maniacs kept its promise and delivers the goods, which should be enough to please us horror fans. Overall the promise of T&A and loads of gore were delivered. Added with the campy humor,Maniacs ends up as a fun and entertaining no-brainer,gore filled ride that horror fans should not miss. I say check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars 2000 MANIACS + 1 April 1, 2006
Re-making '2000 Maniacs' a minor 'classic' of sorts was risky business but Tim Sullivan knows his gore and he succeeds in spades. Maybe it was the extra maniac that did the trick. The plot is basically the same and other reviewers have already detailed it and while the killings were more gruesome and convincing than before I was curious about where the ghostly Southern belles got their Fredericks of Hollywood bras, bustiers and undies. But they sure looked good so who cares?

4.0 out of 5 stars REFRESHINGLY VULGAR AND COMPLETELY UN-PC! February 21, 2006
Those already familiar with the original will know what they've gotten themselves into as our main characters follow a bogus Detour sign-just after narrowly avoiding Justin and Professor Mambo, character favorites from CABIN FEVER who are trying to hitch a ride-and 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 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars extremely crass and un p-c.........LOVE IT!!! March 10, 2006
This has got to be the most crass horror flick to ever come from a studio other than Troma. I loved it. While watching this last night, I thought to myself, "I have not enjoyed a horror movie this much in quite sometime". Plot....College kids on their way to Florida for spring break get side tracked in a town call Pleasant Valley. Nice town. The people take them in, give them rooms and food, etc. Sounds nice doesn't it? Yeah....except for one thing....the townspeople are raving, lunatic cannibals with a very big appetite. Full of stereotypical characters and black humor, blood, guts, squishy heads, and hot girls. Not to mention Robert Englund,and, for once, some of the most original kills I've seen in a long time. Easily offended? Don't watch. Not a fan of guts? Don't watch. Hate gratuitous nudity? Skip it. I, however, love all of these things. I recommend this to horror fans and anyone in general who likes to watch something different. And don't get all pissy when you hear the few black jokes. I'm's funny.....get over it. If you can deal with Dave Chapelle(funny as all hell), you should not have any problem with this. Turn off your brains for a minute and enjoy a highly entertaining, refreshingly adult horror flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cant wait to get this on DVD January 22, 2006
By Jeremy
My selection for this year's Best Horror Film is a dark horse, 2001 MANIACS, a remake of a 1964 horror film that courted controversy. While sticking to the original story, the movie declines to pontificate: messages (racism, jingoism) are diluted within a six-pack libation. Circumventing the original, director Tim Sullivan cues the viscera not as the film's raison d'etre but instead yields to Tex Avery. Sure, there's entrails and decapitations, but Sullivan-who could have leaned on today's technology for clinical realism-opts to tail the Road Runner: 2001 MANIACS is a hybrid of Grand Guignol, ersatz Tennessee Williams and drive-in movie. Unlike the already fossilized movies of last summer, Sullivan forfeits formula and reinvents "splatter." Behind the film's cheerful sadism, and the cynical fade-out, there's a suggestion Pleasant Valley's ghosts will never be exorcised-some of them, in fact, have crossed over to the Six O'clock News.
