Multiple Maniacs' grimy cinematography, bonkers performances and showstopping turn from regular collaborator Divine make this indispensable viewing for aficionados of the strange, the surreal and the downright depraved.

John Waters interweaves his critique of noxious domesticity into the characters at the core of Multiple Maniacs.

For all its ostensible unpleasantness, Multiple Maniacs is cheapo, indie, queer American cinema at its most adversarial and thrillingly vicious.

This being a film by John Waters no stunt is too outrageous and no idea is too grotesque, and whether you'll personally leave shocked or delighted is as always a case of your-milage-may-vary.

Waters shoots the bravura blasphemy for shuddering passion and keeps upping the fervor
March 26, 2017
"Multiple Maniacs" wallows in perversion for perversion's sake because that's what it's there for. You can fight the ideas, but you can't fight the feelings that John Waters puts out there because his respect for filth runs so deep.

Only John Waters could stage a Charles Manson-style slaughter then think: "This could really do with a giant-lobster rape scene to spruce it up."

Uneven, to put it mildly. But when it is funny, it is priceless.

For newbies, this is the ideal place to start. Just do your best to pretend you're seeing it somewhere that isn't directly adjacent to a Jamba Juice.

Shot for $5,000, this '70s black-and-white curio was the "trainer wheels" for Waters' shockfest Pink Flamingos.

Is it some kind of lost masterpiece? No. It's merely an interesting milestone on the path to Mr. Waters's better-known works ...

Waters has a hard time figuring out where to point the camera in any given shot or how to keep his actors in focus, but he never loses sight, for even a moment, of his ultimate goal, which is to shock the world and crack himself up at the same time.

Waters's legendary second feature, made in 1970, is back to show popular culture what punk provocation really looks like.

Negligible budget and poor framing and crap in the film gate and shots that go in and out of focus and all, "Multiple Maniacs" is a helluva movie.

This genial, sometimes literally obscene mess is strictly recommended to hard-core John Waters fans.
