Two Thousand Maniacs!

Type: New Blu-Ray

After shocking and outraging the world with his genre-defining 1963 gore-fest Blood Feast, exploitation pioneer H.G. Lewis would seek (and positively succeed!) to outdo himself with the deliciously depraved Two Thousand Maniacs! When a group of Yankee tourists take a detour and wind up in the small Southern town of Pleasant Valley - which has magically rematerialized 100 years after its destruction during the Civil War - they find themselves welcomed by the eager townsfolk as guests of honour at their centennial celebrations. Little do the Northerners know that the festivities are set to include torture, death and dismemberment... Also including H.G. Lewis' fist fightin', hooch-swillin' epic Moonshine Mountain as a bonus feature, this is one double-dose of hicksploitation truly worthy of an almighty "Yeehah!"
