Maniac (1980) | 🤮 Sick Flicks


Joe Spinell is stalking the women of New York in William Lustig’s 1980 slasher film classic, Maniac in today’s installment of Sick Flicks!

Featuring Tom Savini FX (including one of the greatest exploding head gags in movie history), scream queen Caroline Munro, killer mannequins, mommy issues, inept cops, and another gritty, grimy version of NYC, Maniac has earned its reputation as a grindhouse masterpiece. They don’t make ’em like this anymore.

How will it fare on the Sick Flicks Gore Card? Watch and find out — and remember…I warned you not to go out tonight!
