2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams is a 2010 comedy-horror film written and directed by Tim Sullivan[2] and is a sequel to his earlier film 2001 Maniacs.[3] The story and characters are based on Herschell Gordon Lewis' original film Two Thousand Maniacs.

Plot[edit]

When this year’s round of unsuspecting Northerners fail to show up for their annual Guts N’ Glory Jubilee because the Feds are investigating the disappearances of Northerners over the years, the residents of Pleasant Valley take their twisted 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. They begin killing the cast and crew.

At the end, the residents of Pleasant Valley get an idea to use a TV commercial to lure in their victims.
