Press Release

Quote: Frank Zito (a career performance by co-writer/co-executive producer Joe Spinell of Rocky and Godfather fame) is a deeply disturbed man, haunted by the traumas of unspeakable childhood abuse. And when these horrific memories begin to scream inside his mind, Frank prowls the seedy streets of New York City to stalk and slaughter innocent young women. Now Frank has begun a relationship with a beautiful photographer (Caroline Munro of The Spy Who Loved Me), yet his vile compulsions remain. These are the atrocities of a human monster. This is the story of a Maniac.

Directed by William Lustig ( Maniac Cop, Vigilante) and featuring landmark gore effects by Tom Savini ( Dawn of the Dead and Friday the 13th), this relentlessly shocking and disturbing film was originally censored all over the world due to its graphic violence. Blue Underground is now proud to present Maniac in a new 2K High Definition transfer from the original uncut and uncensored negative, loaded with hours of brand new Extras!
