Maniac has managed to achieve cult status among horror fans
for two reasons: Tom Savini’s special effects and Joe Spinell’s unhinged
performance as the titular maniac. Because much the film was shot at night without
the proper permits, it presents an eerily spare New York City. Aside from the lovely Caroline
Munro, most of the cast is made up of porno actors who had previously worked
for the director. Famously, critic Gene Siskel walked out of a screening of the
movie after one particularly gory effects sequence.
