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.

An absolute classic, you gotta appreciate the practical effects of Savini for a film this old and with such a low budget. The story is disturbing, the music is eerie, and the unflinching violence is brutal. One of my favorite classic horror films, and one of the few films were I can say the remake was actually pretty good too.
One of my favorites. I had no idea what to expect when I saw it in the original run in a theater. It was uncut and it blew me away. We need more like this.
this original was great but the remake is awesome too!
scary classic horror movie!
hell ya. bring it
