Prepare yourself for the ultimate splatter-fest as a psycho killer with a mother fixation (the gritty Joe Spinell - The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Rocky) prowls the seedy streets of New York City stalking, slaughtering and scalping innocent young women.

Directed by William Lustig (Vigilante, Maniac Cop), and featuring landmark effects by gore maestro Tom Savigni (Dawn of the Dead), this notorious classic is presented in all of its psychopathic glory for the first time UNCUT, UNCENSORED and in WIDESCREEN.

Also includes The Joe Spinell Story, a 52 minute documentary on Maniac's cult superstar. Contains interviews with Robert Forster, Caroline Munro, William Lustig, Jason Miller and Richard Lynch.
