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.

Cast: Joe Spinell, Caroline Munro, Abigail Clayton
Spinell is great in this! It’s a total classic for me although never in a million years would she be interested in him haha never the less Savinis work it great as ever and love the cameo
I wasn’t expecting this film to be as good as it was honestly. A lot of parts give me the chills, but the ending was really intense. Very well done, amazing acting. You really get to see inside this guys head, unlike many other horror villains, which is also on its own terrifying.
This was good! Always heard about this film in various horror discussions but never could catch it. Obviously I was thrilled to see Shudder had it in it’s collection. Good slasher with a good storyline. Joe Spinell is as good as advertised
Spinell is great! Remake has a more fluid story but I prefer the Savini effects.
Killer flick. Great atmosphere.
