"2001 Maniacs" (2005) was a great horror movie with an excellent balance between gore and comedy. It also had horror icon Robert Englund (Freddy from Nightmare On Elm Street). Englund did not return for this direct-to-DVD sequel. Instead we get Bill Moseley who I absolutely loved in "Devil's Rejects". He seems to be the only one who actually took acting lessons in the past. The rest of the cast is rather terrible; the characters are annoying and not convincing in any way. But the bad news does not stop here: the sound is terrible and seems to be dubbed later on. The story is dull with really only one cheap location for the entire story. So what about the gore ? There were some great kills in the original one, but here it's not that great with some unconvincing special effects. Instead we get lots of boobs but that can't save the day..
A disappointment for horror fans and fans of the original movie. Only worth watching for hardcore fans; 1 or 2 deaths which are okay, but overall it's unconvincing and really cheap. A total lack of thrills, entertainment and even good production values. 4 out of 10 because of 2 gory deaths which were just OK.
