Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot.
2001 Maniacs is the long awaited sequel to Herschel Gordon Lewis's 1964 classic 2000 Maniacs. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Lewis he is considered the Godfather of Gore whose influence has inspired horror directors for over 40 years. So it should be only fitting film be made to show how much of an influence he was.
The film has a pretty conventional easy to follow plot. The film begins with a scene at a college. It's history class and the students are feeling restless and bored. It's the last day of class before Spring Break you see and the kids want to go home. This is where we meet our 3 characters Anderson, Nelson and Cory. From the looks of things the three of them are more than ready to get out of school and party and when the bell rings they are fast out of there. They make the decision to go to Daytona Beach, Florida and the story unfolds from there.
Along the way they make a stop in Georgia and come across across three other going to Florida. A bisexual male and his two lady friends. the two chicks are extremely hot and instantly win the affections of our main characters. After shooting the bull for a few minutes our three amigos are off! All seems well until they come across a detour known as Pleasant Valley. Pleasant Valley is a small Southern Town that is in the midst of their guts and glory Jubilee and it seems that Anderson, Nelson and Cory are all invited as the guests of honor by the mayor played the horror icon Robert Englund. And guess who else shows up? That's right the bi dude and his two lady friends. We also get 2 more guests as a Black Biker and his Asian girlfriend also join the mix.This brings the body count to 8 victims. What a Jubilee it's going to be!
From here on the movie is hodge podge of sex and violence. Straight sex, Lesbian sex, Gay sex, Interracial Sex, Beastiality and Incest are all featured in this movie. To top it off the gore factor is incredible. Decapitations, skewering, impalement, and cannibalism are abound in this picture. If you arte looking for sleaze than this is it!
All in all 2001 Maniacs would do Herschel Proud. Nudity, Sex, and Gore. If you want to see a man lose his intestines while he's having sex, this is the movie for you!
