My favourite horror subgenre would have to be slashers, especially backwoods/cannibal/inbred hick movies (like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wrong Turn, Deliverance). So when I saw that this movie was on FEARnet, I watched it immediately.
2001 Maniacs is about some college kids heading to the beach for Spring Break. But they come across a detour sign leading them to a strange town having a celebration in honour of the Civil War. They decide to stay, unaware that they're being killed off in preparation for the big feast.
This movie is a remake of Herschell Gordon Lewis's film Two Thousand Maniacs, which I haven't seen yet. I enjoyed his film The Wizard of Gore and this movie so I think I'll have to check it out.
I really enjoyed 2001 Maniacs. It mixes gore and humour together perfectly. And it stars a few horror favourites. Robert Englund played the mayor of the town (George W. Buckman) and there were cameos by Eli Roth, Kane Hodder and Travis Tritt.
I don't want to say too much about this movie because I don't want to give anything away. If you like horror movies with a little bit of gore and lots of humour, check this one out.
