Classic! big fan of Tom Savini and his work. R.I.P Joe Spinell 10/10

One of the most visceral and best horror films of the 80's

This uncompromising slasher classic stars the late, great Joe Spinell as the titular title character. Frank Zito is a mild mannered apartment attendant by day but at night he terrorizes the Big Apple with his gruesome murders. Spinell's Zito is very much in the same vein as Norman Bates. He was raised by a cruel and domineering mother. In fact under closer scrutiny the film bares much in common with Hitchcock's "Psycho" masterpiece. But unlike "Psycho", "Maniac" delivers on the bloody goods. Tom Savini's effects and the overall tone of the film brought a lot of controversy in the early eighties, particularly by women's groups who saw this as a massive blight on the women's lib movement. The film is what it is and never compromises. It delivers on a shoestring as intensity many bigger films could only wish for. Not to mention it has the lovely Caroline Munro. 9/10

M-A-N-I-A-C!! THE ORIGINAL!! 5/5!! ENOUGH SAID!!

Posted by vampbabe 5 years, 9 months ago

This is a classic movie. One of the rare jems that Tom Savanii both acted in and did gorey effects. The pace is good and yes a bit dated, it is the 80's golden era of slasher movies and this one really goes for it. I own this flim and watched it several times a year and it never gets old. It's sexy, sleazy, and just good bloody fun!

I've seen some terrible reviews of this film, but my God, IT'S BRILLIANT!!! What is the matter with everyone? Even seen people say it's too gory... it's about a serial killer who scalps his victims. What did people expect? The scene on the subway is the best part, but the whole film is so claustrophobic and tense. I don't often watch old horror/thrillers, but I'm glad I watched this one. 5/5

This was really good, can't believe I'd never seen it. I slightly enjoyed the original better. Nothing like an 80's horror. 8/10

Cool movie, could have done without the moaning and growling from the Maniac but other than that, it's a horror pic that has got it all. Elijah Woods is decent too. I just don't want to make comparisons.

I just saw the Elijah Wood remake. It's very good and tru to the original. The version I saw was in Foriegn language. I think French? I still loved it. Not as great as the classic Joe Spinalle version, Elijah did a great role. I actually thoght I would find on here, but I guess not yet. In short the new version is not Hollywood glamourized at all. It has a definate Dario Argento look and the way the introduce Elijah wood is very smart. He is creepy.

Elijah Wood is working on the remake for this.
