Southern Discomfort

When it seems no one is going to roll in to Pleasant Valley this year Mayor Buckman (Bill Moseley), Granny Boone (Lin Shaye) and the rest of the redneck clan decide to take their annual Guts N' Glory Jamboree to the North. It's on the road that they stumble across Rome & Tina Sheraton, the spoiled heiresses of their own reality show along with their crew. Well what are some southern dudes meant to do that show these Northern folks some old fashioned Southern Hospitality.

When I watched "2001 Maniacs" I basically said it was the equivalent of a teen sex comedy combined with the gore of a teen horror movie. The thing is that having watched the sequel "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams" it makes "2001 Maniacs" come across as Oscar worthy. Everything about "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams" is weak and it doesn't really have a story or at least not a story which you find yourself following.

Nope instead what "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams" delivers are characters which are even more over the top caricatures than previously with Lin Shaye returning as Granny Boone. It also delivers more over the top gore with scenes such as one which can only be described as sawing the woman in half with a twist. But what you really get a lot of in "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams" is nudity and sex jokes with scene after scene of nubile women or someone mucking about with a stuffed animal.

What this all boils down to is that "2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams" is not only a weak sequel but a movie with an 18 certificate which will probably only entertain any 15 year old boy who finds this in their brother's stash of DVDs.
