Apollo Guide

Best described as the diametric opposite of a refreshing shower, William Lustig's Maniac has long been reviled as one of horror's truly ugly films.

Reel Film Reviews underwhelming, uninvolving product of its time that simply possesses no relevance in 2010.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Distasteful on every level and none to coherent either.

Lessons of Darkness

An unapologetically twisted study in pathological murderousness.

Rob Gonsalves

Seen today, the movie has more in common with the grungy Times Square aesthetic of Abel Ferrara than with the multitudes of slasher flicks that followed it.

Cinema Crazed

It's a surefire memorable horror film with a horrifying glimpse into the mind of a merciless killer.

This old chestnut from 1980 is worth revisiting for fans of the nouveau 'old skool' horror films of today.
