You know, I was almost ready to say, "Fuck that noise!", but I thought about it a minute and I think you're right.
Dawn of the Dead is still one of my favorite zombie movie of all time (yes, the remake), because it's a lot of fun with a lot of great tense moments. It also defied a lot of people's expectations, changing a lot of people's minds on a wider scale.
Maniac, however, just worked on a different level. It was more than popcorn fun, it was dark, disturbing and stays in your mind for a while. I put it on the level of Martyrs, Kill List and └ L'intÚrieur, where it's a real horror fan's kind of horror movie.
