While traveling on vacation to Florida, the college friends Anderson Lee, Cory Jones and Nelson Elliot meet the gorgeous Joey and Kat in a gas station traveling with their gay friend Ricky to the same location. Anderson gives his phone number to Joey in Florida. The teenagers decide to take a shortcut and they find a detour through an old road leading to the Southern town of Pleasant Valley.

Goofs

When Anderson and Joey are about to jump the fire on Malcolm's bike, you can see that the bike's headlight is on. However, when they jump the fire and land, the bike is seen in rear view driving down the dark track with the headlight most definitely not on. And again when they're driving back from Pleasant Valley the next morning, the bike's headlight is on. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Professor Ackerman: Unprecedented, historic casualties. More Americans died in the so-called Civil War than in the two World Wars combined. 618,000. Although the popular media usually portrays the Civil War as a series of epic battles for honor and glory, the reality is far from either. General Sherman's march through South Carolina alone cost over 8,000 innocent Southerners their lives.

The South kind of rises again
14 December 2006 | by bergma15@msu.eduSee all my reviews

As a big fan of the HG Lewis "Blood" trilogy, my heart leaped for joy when it saw this title. It didn't hurt that Robert Englund was starring in it and that it looked to have more gore than the original. I thought this would be an updated sequel that would be purposely campy but still deliver on the gore (much like Blood Feast 2). I was rather disappointed. The gore was pretty good, but it didn't have the same sense of humor that "2000 Maniacs" did. It also seemed to be more of a remake than an homage to the original.

The plot is pretty much the same as 2000, but throw in an interracial couple, a bi-sexual guy, and college kids. These folks are lured into an antiquated southern town for a festival, which has very dark undertones (I think anyone can figure this out pretty easily). Englund plays the mayor/civic leader/pater familias/ whatever of the back water southern community. Anyone who has seen the original should already know who will get the chop and when. There is a small twist at the end (in addition to the same twist as was in 2000 Maniacs), but it's pretty predictable.

I didn't think this was a bad movie. Some of the gore was pretty good, and there was decent acting (Englund is always a stable horror actor). However, I think that what really let me down is that I expected the same tongue-in-cheek humor that the original had. I don't think that HG Lewis had anything to do with the production and it shows. Not to say that it's bad, it's just doesn't deliver on the fun aspect as much as one would have expected.
