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.

Loved it. Frank Zitto is a true Maniac!
Holy shit, that last meltdown sequence was intense. Lol. Not bad! Not bad at all, imo. 🤗
Worth checking out for the NYC location shots and the Savinni special effects, but not much else.
Definetly worth the watch. Very cool character study on a mad man. Love thatbitntook place in early 80s NYC. Tom Savini never fails to deliver top notch Practical fxs, the film however is not without its flaws however but check ot out!
