I dont get it you give it 5/5 stars then say you CONSIDER getting it?????? Dont make sense to me.

That is by far the best slasher flick to ever be made IMO. Extremely graffic, violent, Brutal, gory and twisted with Joe Spinnel playing a great psycho, it by far is one of my top 5 favorite horror films. I remeber see'ing it when I was like 7years old couldnt remeber the name and then ran into some kid who was a huge horror fan and I asked him he told me the name and when on the mission to find it. I have had it for 2 years and watch it probablyonce a month.

Anyway this movie was not directed by Zitto the director is William Lustig. Maniac 1980.

Sorry for the misinfo there...I know Zito had something to do with it though, if I'm right. Thanks for the 411. As far as The Prowler, didn't Savini do the FX on that one also?

Yes. The Prowler show cases some of Savini's best work. The guy always delivers. Joseph Zito and Tom also tag teamed Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, which is one of the best in the series.

...I'm not sure if it is a slasher or a serial killer movie....usually slashers dont go indept in the killers psyche...but I not sure...maybe you can call it a borderline between a slasher and a serial killer movie.....

Isnt a slasher movie about serial killers, didnt know there was a difference. Since you say there is maybe you could give me examples maybe 2 or 3 movies under each category?

I never knew there were specific groups for serial killers, I never even knew the two were categorized seperatley. I have always thought a slasher flick would basically be a about any type of person going around murdering people, violently obviousley, but I could be wrong.

I would consider Maniac, Black Christmas, High Tension, Texas Chainsaw Massacre ( 1974 ofcourse ), Last House on the Left, Se7en etc.... to be Slsher flicks, but thats how I look at it. I guess its all a matter of opinion.

Maniac is one of my favorite movies ever, that movie epitomizes sleaze and grime, so much to the point it comes out of the television

Yeah no denying that scene where the Maniac blew poor Tom Savini's head right off his shoulders with a 12 gauge. Talk about your Excedrin headaches..
