Some crew members also had a minor role as "Additional Maniac" in this movie. They were even credited for this role. See more »
Obvious usage of dummies at times for the death sequences. See more »
Unprecedented, historical categories. More Americans died in the so-called Civil War than in the two World Wars combined. 618,000. Although popular media usually portrays the Civil War as a series of epic battles for honor and glory the reality is far from either. General Sherman's march through South Carolina alone cost over 8,000 innocent Southerners their lives.

I loved this movie. It was funny and the death scenes were just freaking awesome! I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. Good stuff right here. The people of Pleasant Valley were just cruel and very unusual. You were either on the killers side or the victims, whichever way you go the movie is still great. The ending was funny and gory. 2001 Maniacs was definitely a good rebel south horror movie. 2001 Maniacs follows it's original, Two Thousand Maniacs, very well. Stayed very true. The Twilight Zone twist was pretty good, so look out for that. The acting was mediocre, but overall the movie was great. 2001 Maniacs is a fun movie, you'll enjoy it.
