Two trailers for ya today, both for Tim Sullivan’s sequel to his 2005 cult horror hit “2001 Maniacs”, titled, amusingly enough, “2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams”. Our very own James Mudge already reviewed the film here, having caught it at one of them fancy horror festivals overseas. The rated trailer was released on Myspace, and the unrated NSFW trailer showed up on SYTD.
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”.
Starring Bill Moseley, Lin Shaye, Christa Campbell, Nivek Ogre, Andrea Leon, Ahmed Best, Katy Marie Johnson, Asa Hope, Larayia Gaston, Trevor Wright, Miles Dougal, Alex Luria, and directed by Tim Sullivan.
“Field of Screams” arrives on DVD and Blu-ray July 20.
