Classic Slasher ‘Maniac’ Gets Blu-ray Release

Arriving on high def Blu-ray October 26 from Blue Underground is William Lustig’s awesome slasher, Maniac, which features a slew of brand new interviews to go along with features from the previous releases. Frank Zito (a career performance by co-writer/ co-executive producer Joe Spinell of Rocky and The 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.
