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.

It is a movie that makes you kinda sick. Joe can play a scumbag. I give him that. Early tom savini work. It isn’t fun like a Jason movie. And it isn’t camp like a drive inn movie. I put closer to torture porn horror.
A classic film, absolutely grimy feeling tho.
its fine. didnt love it. the last few scenes were my favorite bits
one of the greatest movies ive ever seen. i feel dirty after watching this and i wish there wouldve been a sequel. 2012 remake isnt bad though starring elijah wood
