Directed by William Lustig
A twisted psychopath displays his victims' scalps on mannequins in his apartment in Bill Lustig's iconic 1980's slasher movie. The pretty women who encounter Frank Zito (super creep Joe Spinell) all wind up dead. But when Frank meets a female photographer named Anna (cult-horror star Caroline Munro), his interest in her - and her affection for him - leads to a battle between his good and bad sides. MANIAC's famous tagline read "I WARNED YOU NOT TO GO OUT TONIGHT," but no matter whether you watch it inside or out, you run the risk of being scared to death.

The sweat budget on this thing must’ve been out of control.
I loved this movie....so bloody and violent. Joe Spinell really pulled it off. I thought this was way better than the remake, probably because Elijah Wood looks like a child. Great film.
a few good splatter, one good breath taking moment. Other than that, I was not very impressed... :/
No one but Joe Spinell could pull this off so perfectly.
Couldn't even finish. So boring.
