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.

This is what you want? this is what you like isnt it????? 🗡️ lol
Great early slasher film.
I have never seen more realistic gore and considering it’s the 80’s I’m impressed lack of plot though
No...just no!!! Terrible and the heavy breathing at the start should have told me right then and there to 'do not proceed further'. Unsure how this got such a good rating. I will say however the ratings are likely based on comparisons of the 1980s when it would have been a good movie back then..so surely a cult classic to some
NYC version of Ed Gein. Delightful.
