Holy Shit. A word that flew through my mind more times then I could count. More than a movie, this piece of work directed by William Lustig felt like a peak into the mind of a maniac; First Hand. Set in the early 80’s in New York, Following the everyday life of a man named Frank Zito; everything from his apartment to the conversations he has with his mirror regarding the violent deaths of people... read more

"7.11 Rankka kuvaus ihmismielen synkimmistä syövereistä. Spinell tekee loistavan suorituksen pääosassa, muistutti taas kuinka aliarvostettu hän eläessään oli. Ahdistavia hetkiä löytyy paljon ja elokuvan yksinkertaisuus onnistuu nappaamaan heti mukaansa."

"24th July, on DVD Not really as great as I expected. Maniac is really repulsive, but that's the point. At its best it's magnificent. The problem is that the film is very inconsistent: there are too many moments when nothing really happens and the film becomes a bit of a chore. If this problem was fixed, Maniac would easily get 4 stars."

"He is terrible in all capacities, though his performance is more immediately objectionable. Watching him act like a psychopathic killer with a mommy-complex is like watching someone else throw up. - Vincent Canby, New York Times"
