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.

Creepy in the most exciting way. A slasher with a consistent throughline and that Tom Saviny splashy blood we all love so much.
Pretty cool slasher; very creepy. Love the setting, the make up, the gore...can't beat it.
This is definitely a hidden gem for slasher films. This film does a fantastic job portraying the killers delusions and obsessive behaviors. This is a must watch for all horror fans!
One of my favorites on here. Unconventionally creepy with a fantastic color palette and maximalistic yet easy to follow plot line. 10/10.
It's not a bad movie, but the ending was quite mediocre.
