Two Thousand Maniacs
Directed by Herschell Gordon Lewis
Psychotic Southerners torture six Northerners during a Civil War celebration in gore godfather Herschell Gordon Lewis' politically incorrect masterpiece. Lured to the centennial bash, the Yanks quickly realize they're to be subjected to macabre, blood-crazed fun and games. One's placed in a rolling barrel lined with nails, while another has her arm hacked off and barbecued! Will any of them live to see another day? Lewis' gleefully gross BRIGADOON-homage paved the way for the entire backwoods horror genre - from THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE to WRONG TURN. Contains violence and gore.
Psychotic Southerners torture six Northerners during a Civil War celebration.

I watched this having already seen 2001 Maniacs and 2001 Maniacs Field of Screams. They definitely kept to the story in the sequels. I enjoyed this film but not as much as 2001 Maniacs. It could be my age, it could be the quality. It could be the fact that Robert Englund and Lin Shay are baddies in the same horror together (which is just fantastic!). If you like 2001 Maniacs, then definitely give this a go, it's certainly better than Field of Screams! If you've never seen any, a brief description would be: a silly, staggered gore fest with supernatural undertones.
Slow, dull, silly.
Loved 2001 maniacs better
More Herschell Gordon Lewis films!!! They're all so terrible. but that's what makes them fun.
