Two Thousand Maniacs!

Two Thousand Maniacs!

Screening after Blood Fest

Inspired by the musical Brigadoon and the success of Blood Feast, Lewis served up a moist tale of Pleasant Valley, which arises once a century to avenge their destruction at the hands of Union forces in the American Civil War. A half-dozen poor Yankees find themselves in Pleasant Valley on that fateful day and are subjected to numerous horrifying (yet entertaining) deaths. With more blood than ever before, Lewis also prefigures later films dealing America’s North/South and urban/rural schisms.
