I Warned You Not To Go Out Tonight...

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."

"Knives only. As in the fact no one in the majority of slasher films use a gun. Only use knives; particularly the killer."

"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."

"Fantastic slasher movie with superb effects by Tom Savini. Joe Spinell gives a memorable performance as the serial killer with a mother fetish."

"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"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Gene Siskel was so disgusted by the infamous "shotgun head explosion" scene that he walked out of the movie, saying on his TV show with Roger Ebert that the film could not redeem itself after the ultra-violence that he had seen. Because they would only have one chance to film the scene where Tom Savini's character gets shot, Savini decided that he should be the one to pull the trigger. He said it felt a little weird shooting the dummy he had created of himself in the face. The film originally"
