What are the hobbies of Hyla Marrow? 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.
It was an intense movie with great special effects, it almost feels dirty and grimey which is a major positive I feel.
Joe Spinell's performance is undeniably briiliant and flawless.
Hyla's first film stunt was in 1975 where she had to dodge a speeding car by leaping over its hood just before the car crashed into a newsstand and flipped over.
This movie isn't just another awesome showcase of the great Tom "Sex Machine" Savini's brilliant gore effects but a well thought out masterpiece.
Cinematography is by Robert Lindsay.
