This review is from: Maniac / [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
One of the best slasher movies from the early years of the genre (1978 - 1981), as Friday 13th, The Prowler, The Burning, Prom Night, and of course, the influential Halloween. Bloody, violent, pessimistic, sick, anyway, an example of strong direction, coming from the independent film view, almost at the foot of Abel Ferrara's 1979 Driller Killer movie. The issue of Blu-underground brings interesting extras, including the story that the movie would have been an inspiration to an infamous musical picture of the middle 80s. There is nothing to complain for the picture image, very clear, highlighting the bright red of the blood gushed in torrents. For anyone who is a fan of the original period slasher genre, Maniac is a mandatory film, and yet, now that released on blu-ray, brings a new perspective on a film with such a prolific period when the first half of the 80s. Without a shadow of doubt: BUY NOW.
