  1. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Maniac

    Joe Spinell is the best possible maniac on screen...his twisted expression and psychopath attitude make the whole film. An undisputed classic in the genre. Disturbing one, Deranged comes close.

  2. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Maniac

    kind of like if Jim Thompson had a hentai nightmare directed by Abel Ferrara, and also the music was really good. the last 15 minutes sell it

  3. Louis Léonard's rating of the film Maniac

    That's pretty much the kind of film I'd make. (3.5 / 5)

  4. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Maniac

    The first 49 minutes of Maniac is often overlooked as an avant-garde film, mainly because general audiences fail to see the horror genre-- let alone slashers-- as experimental, unless it's obvious about its intention or meaning, akin to most dramas. Yet, the bulk of this film is truly an avant-garde slasher that exchanges narrative for a gritty and lurid atmosphere that sucks you into its world and works you over.

  6. Donia shohdy's rating of the film Maniac

  7. Rocco's rating of the film Maniac

    Is it bad that I prefer the remake?

  8. sacajawèale's rating of the film Maniac

  9. DanOffen's rating of the film Maniac

    Awful. Painfully boring, with every sequence dragged out to it's extreme it's about an hour longer than it needs to be. Occasionally veers towards "so bad it's good territory". Despite the films attempt to have "THEMES" there is nothing of any interest to be found here.

  10. kakaok's rating of the film Maniac

    one of the best slashers after Halloween. very disturbing. exceptional soundtrack.

  11. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Maniac

    The epitome of b-movie: 10 bucks for budget, terse, over the edge and with a visionary ending.

  12. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Maniac

    La idea de plantear esa doble personalidad, además de los traumas maternales es lo mejor de la película. Las escenas alucinatorias del cementerio y el final son logradas. "Maniac" es también una de las pocas películas que por entonces contemplaba al asesino desde primera persona.

  13. Junda Mane's rating of the film Maniac

    A nasty but fun exploitation classic. Mostly memorable for the brutal gore effects by the legendary Tom Savini. The recent remake is terrific & actually surpasses the original.

  14. cmuela's rating of the film Maniac

  15. pivic's rating of the film Maniac

    Quite a dated, yet decent slasher film. I've not seen many of those, but I like the silence in the film, which is quite rare. Of course, the "maniac" is really a fantastic monster, built from shallow prejudice. Still, it's a ride, if one can take how dated it feels. Still, it's scary at times.

  16. Amin Lumière's rating of the film Maniac

    one of the best head blast scene ever!

  17. Silenzio's rating of the film Maniac

    Extremely disturbing exploitation film. From a technical point of view the remake with Elijah Wood improves on this in several ways but nevertheless I much prefer Lustig's film partly due to Spinell's creepy performance which in my opinion Wood does not match in the new version

  18. João R's rating of the film Maniac

    Great idea, bad execution. Basically, the sequences with the mannequins and the ending (they are alive!) make the movie.

  19. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Maniac

    great, dark & sick movie - the end was just awesome.

  20. Shelley's rating of the film Maniac

    the ending was pretty spectacular

  21. Erick's rating of the film Maniac

    The shotgun scene says it all.

  22. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Maniac

    Monótona y reiterativa, pero vale la pena por la brutal y memorable escena del parabrisas.

  23. SDSM's rating of the film Maniac

    A stand out horror film that is criminally underrated. Joe Spinell gives a brilliant performance as a twisted and truly disturbed serial killer. Great gore effects by Tom Savini and a dark and dirty atmosphere makes this a must see for genre fans.
