Today's horror movies barely register once the credits stop rolling, but not so Maniac.

...an underwhelming, uninvolving product of its time that simply possesses no relevance in 2010.

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

Lessons of Darkness

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.

too good to be dismissed as simple exploitation, but also too inept in too many ways to be taken seriously
