DVD Review: 2001 Maniacs

2001 Maniacs was a pleasure to watch. A great mixture of horror, comedy, gore, and southern hospitality! A group of college co-eds are heading down to Florida for Spring Break when they get detoured to the lovely town of Pleasant Valley. They're just in time for the big barbeque festival. Led by the mayor (fantastically played by Robert Englund), the town does it's best to make the strangers feel welcome. Unfortunately, Pleasant Valley's idea of feeling welcome is down right nasty. This one is a gem in an ocean of crappy movies, so do yourself a favor and check it out. It's a promising debut from an up and coming production company, I hope they keep it up. It gets ****1/2 out of *****.
