First Look Studios to Release 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams

It seems like we’ve been waiting to see 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams forever, so it’s with relief that today’s news is helping put an end date in sight.

The film has been acquired by none other than First Look Studios with its official premiere to be at the Texas Frightmare Weekend on April 29th at 9 PM in Dallas, Texas.

When this year’s round of unsuspecting Northerners fail to show up for their annual Guts ‘N Glory Jamboree, the residents of Pleasant Valley take their cannibalistic carnival on the road and head to Iowa, where they encounter spoiled heiresses Rome and Tina Sheraton and the cast and crew of their “Road Rascals” reality show. Performing “The Bloodiest Show on Earth”, our Southern Maniacs prove more than ratings killers in what John Landis has called “one of the rare sequels that surpasses the original”.

We’ll be keeping a close watch on this one from here on out as the flick seems to be within our grasp! Hopefully a Blu-ray/DVD release won’t be too far away. From everything we’ve heard about this one, it’s going to be a blast!
