REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..this unpleasant, slasher's-point-of-view flick gives a clue..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
1 of 4

“..the structure of the film is 89 minutes of brutality with a college degree. This is a warning, not a recommendation..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..the movie is essentially a sadistic art-house bloodbath, with opera music and ballet dancers and funky little art galleries..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..Mr. Khalfoun nearly makes the film about pitying the panic-prone killer; the camerawork lacks the ominous, confident glide of much Steadicam horror..”
by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times]
4 of 5

“..Maniac doesn't quite reach the heights of that great horror film; it's a bit too self-aware..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
