2001 Maniacs

2001 Maniacs is much better than Herschell Gordan Lewis’ 2000 Maniacs. This was no surprise to me as I thought 2000 Maniacs was complete trash (not even good trash). Lewis no doubt has a serious phobia of the south. 2001 Maniacs director Tim Sullivan at least has some lowbrow talent (as proven with 2001 Maniacs). It is most likely that Lewis’ eyes become dilated with dollar bill signs when he keep up with the idea to do cheap gore. Blood Feast is still a classic regardless of its gimmick.

Nothing would please me more than a bunch of college students being murdered by the ghosts of Civil War Southerners. Unfortunately for them they would no long be able to play beer pong, poker, or watch football (which they have never played in their entire lives). For them, the South threatens their hedonistic obsessions.

The film features a variety of big natural breasted Southern women that trap the university clowns into a trance of lust. These Southern women don’t need to buy their sexual goods. The most slutty of the Southern madams even has an extra pair of teeth to prevent the act of sodomy. The old South sticks to it’s conservative roots.

Camcorder auteur Giuseppe Andrews exuberates Charm with a twang in 2001 Maniacs. Andrews always delivers the goods. Robert England sports a “stars and bars” eye patch like no other. England’s 2001 Maniacs charismatic performance is even comparable to his role as Freddy Krueger in the Nightmare on Elm Street films. To be honest, most of the performances by the Southerners are excellent. I can't say that about the northerners. Their deaths put a genuine smile on my face.

Eli Roth makes a appearance (I hate when he does that) in 2001 maniacs as a very silly armadillo throwing fellow. I would have to say that 2001 Maniacs is better than both Hostel 1 and 2. Roth seems to take himself seriously as a director. I believe that Tim Sullivan was just glad he could make a film that he and other people could enjoy.

Once again there was some pansy faggot bullshit in this film that almost spoilt it for me, when i watch a horror movie i only want to see naked chicks and all heterosexual sex (preferably filmed in POV).
