  1. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Even knowing the movies - and water’s - reputation, I still found myself shocked at moments. These weren’t as much the visual aspects (i.e. the puke eating, the lobster rape, etc.) but some of the insane things that are said. Things like a seeming confession to the extremely recent (at the time) Sharon Tate murder. The other shocker was just how funny it was. “I’m so happy I could shit!”

  2. Christopher McQuain's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

  3. James Mackin's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Oh, to be a maniac, to be so far gone into one's own depravity. To be a man-eater, a woman-killer, to be simply divine.

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Everybody says that once they get into it.

  5. Jason's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Who would have imagined in 1970 this era of ubiquitous hardcore pornography, anarchic international manifestations of incipient facisms (in concert w/, and at odds w/, seemingly endless permissiveness), and 4K restorations of MULTIPLE MANIACS brought to us by Janus Films? Well, nobody. I would hope. This is the end of 1969. And the beginning of the end of everything (and not just the counterculture). And what a joy!

  6. Erik F.'s rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    A star for the deliciously demented Divine ... and an extra star for that lobster! ;-)

  7. Vanessa Martinez's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    so many good outfits in this movie, i can hardly stand it.

  8. Rocco's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    If Waters ever made an "important" film, it's this one.

  9. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

  10. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    This early gem from John Waters is an absolute treat and a great trip to his cavalcade of madness!

  11. yasdnil's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Did anyone else think of Judge Trudy? Movie dismissed, bring in the horny lobster.

  12. cevausername's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

  13. Dorabella's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    John Waters at his best. I love Divine of course. Love, loved this movie. The church scene is my favorite. Very funny film.

  14. Cbarky99's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    The Gospel according to Divine

  15. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    I don't know why I liked this crap so much. Maybe because Waters is the only one who can make trash look like art ,because his films are the best definition of cinematic absurdism or because the very "realistic" stabbing scenes and a rapist lobster?actually I do know,but I'm afraid I'm going to disdain myself if I go any further

  16. Rolph90's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Any film where a transvestite gets raped by a lobster is my kind of movie

  17. Kevin Cole's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    I've read the screenplay and I love it. They just need to hurry up and release it on DVD!

  18. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    BEST, up there with Female Trouble in my favorites

  19. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Yeah man, this lobster and the ending won it five stars. Unprecedented, brilliant stuff!

  20. nothere's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Campy, trashy, cheap fun from the king of filth. Really fun stuff.

  21. Andrés Pff's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

  22. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Even though it's far from perfect I'm glad Criterion elected a lo fi cult film such as this to get a 4k restoration because it's one of the most entertaining films of the late 60's I can think of watching today.

  23. Matt's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    It's kind of like 'The Room,' except it's intended to be funny.

  24. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

    Waters in waiting. Some grungily amusing scenes and notions - the cavalcade, the rosary job, Divine's Godzilla-like rampage - but a shoddy whole, missing the more focused trajectory of 'Flamingos and 'Trouble. This feels more like a director finding his feet and a series of short films laced together. However, the mighty sight of Divine chasseing down the street is a gem of anti-glam.
