Maniac (1980)

Snoogans - wrote on 11/07/11

A gruesome and grimy looking slasher that focuses entirely on the killer. The intent is to show the killer's mental illness, and to a point I guess it does shine the maniac spotlight on him, but all I ever got from his psyche was a troubled past with an abusive mother. The slayings are graphic, disturbing, and sleazy, with very detailed effects work adding to the grossness. I find the whole film to be an empty, but effectively sickening experience. Take that however you like.
