When this year's round of unsuspecting Northerners fail to show up for their annual Guts N' Glory Jamboree, the residents of Pleasant Valley take their cannibalistic carnival on the road and head to Iowa where they encounter spoiled heiresses Rome & Tina Sheraton and the cast and crew of their "Road Rascals" reality show. Performing "The Bloodiest Show on Earth", our Southern Maniacs prove more than ratings killers in what John Landis has called "one of the rare sequels that surpasses the original".

"Revenge is sweet when you're munching on the meat of a Yankee"
Hard to match the ground-breaking Herschell Gordon Lewis gem from '64 or Tim Sullivan's fun blood-soaked remake from 2005. Although Sullivan's latest entry is a step back in comparison, it still has enough offensive and fabulously gory good times to make this a worthy addition to the video blood bank. Let the flesh chomping commence!
Cult horror stud Bill Moseley stars as George W. Buckman. He steps in for Robert Englund as the mayor of Pleasant Valley, a small Southern town with a violent past. Buckman actually leads a pack of Confederate ghosts seeking revenge on any and all Northern tourists. Hungry for blood, this crazed group takes their Traveling Jambouree on the road in search of some fresh Yankee flesh.
They soon meat up in Iowa with a stranded bus full of Road Rascals, a reality show crew from California. This is an obvious spoof of The Simple Life, and is pretty darn funny. This group of pretty boys and ditsy models plan to film their show under the fake pretense that they are down in the South. They obviously get more than they bargained for when they kick it with Buckman and his insane hillbilly squad.
2001 Maniacs Field of Screams has some fairly awesome blood splatter, highlighted by some vicious table saw action. Good times. Throw in some nice shots of nudity with a hefty serving of raw unbridled humor, and you've pretty much summed up this low budget affair. Nothing ground-breaking, but this film is much better than most of the recent, larger budget Hollywood flicks polluting the theaters. Ignore these bad reviews, grab this instead of the new Halloween 2, Last House on the Left, Friday the 13th, The Amityville Horror, My Bloody Valentine, Nightmare on Elm Street, or The Wolfman.
