TWO THOUSAND MANIACS!:
TWO THOUSAND MANIACS!: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 honor at their centennial celebrations. Little do the Northerners know that the festivities are set to include torture, death and dismemberment!
MOONSHINE MOUNTAIN:A country-western singer Doug Martin returns to rural North Carolina with his fiancée Della to reconnect with his roots. He is greeted by two feuding families, the Carpenters and the Bashams, as well as the town sheriff Asa Potter. However when the sheriff murders Della for resisting his advances and begins a murder spree, can Doug get the warring families to put aside their differences and defeat the crazed lawman?
- Moonshine Mountain was the first film made by H.G. Lewis after splitting with producing partner David F. Friedman.
- Two Thousand Maniacs! stars 1963 Playboy Playmate Connie Mason.
- Two Thousand Maniacs! the second part of what the director's fans later dubbed 'The Blood Trilogy', a trio of films starting with 1963's Blood Feast and ending with 1965's Color Me Blood Red.
- Two Thousand Maniacs! was one of the first to introduce audiences to the Southern gore movie subgenre: Northern outsiders stranded in the rural South horrifically murdered by backwoods Southerners, peaking with the release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Lewis' initial run of splatter movies hold up as being incredibly watchable and have influenced everything in horror from the grindhouse stuff of the 70s, to the slasher boom of the 80s, to the postmodern comedies of the 90s, to the torture porn movement of the 00s and beyond (Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez both owe a lot to his template).
