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.
Maniac is 100% better than those films (Except maybe Hills) but If I would much rather watch Last House, Evil Dead or Dawn of the Dead.

Like you said, Maniac is dark and very disturbing. Need to be in the right mind set to watch it IMO.
