And the news keeps trucking in this weekend, but this time it’s not AFM related! We just got our claws on a brand new exclusive image from the recently retitled sequel from Tim Sullivan, 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams. Check it out!
After the sheriff refuses to cover up any further for the maniacs causing all the missing persons in the area, they’re forced to hit the road in what’s dubbed the “Pleasant Valley Traveling Road Show,” where the maniacs head across country in hopes of gathering more victims. We’ll follow a young TV crew called the “Road Rascals” as they find themselves mixed up with another one of the maniacs’ deadly festivals.
Dig on our exclusive image below, along with a message from Tim himself. Look for more soon!
As many of you know, this weekend was the scheduled screening of a temp version of 2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS for buyers at the AFM market.
After much consideration, the producers and I all made what I believe was the very wise decision to postpone the screenings till the film was 100% complete.
As wonderful as it looks, there is still a lot of sound work to be done; the current mix, score and ADR is still only temp. It’s all about the “lasting first impression”, and although you can tell buyers and distributors that the sound mix is “temporary”, they still inevitably will judge you by what they are watching on the screen.
Add the additional obstacle of the language barrier with the Foreign buyers, and we ultimately are just not putting our best foot forward… Which I refuse to do, having come this far and having all worked so hard bringing our very best A game to this very mad tea party. We continue to work round the clock with my composer and sound designer Patrick Copeland on the scoring and sound mix- and we anticipate a finished film by the holidays.

Shock and Roll!
PS—Let’s all wish our good Mayor, Bill Moseley a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY this coming Wednesday, November 11th!”
