Blue Underground Unleashing Maniac on Blu-ray

"I WARNED YOU NOT TO GO OUT TONIGHT!" Those of us thirty-somethings out there who are horror fans still have those words ringing in our ears from the numerous TV and radio spots for the now classic slasher flick Maniac. And now Blue Underground is gearing up to bring those chills to high definition!

The distributor officially announced today that William Lustig's film will be hitting Blu-ray on October 26th of this year, just in time for Halloween. While official specs haven't been announced yet, we do know that there will be some new content to go along with the previously released stuff. Stay tuned for an update soon!

"Frank Zito (a career performance by co-writer/co-executive producer Joe Spinell of Rocky and The Godfather fame) is a deeply disturbed man, haunted by the traumas of unspeakable childhood abuse. And when these horrific memories begin to scream inside his mind, Frank prowls the seedy streets of New York City to stalk and slaughter innocent young women. Now Frank has begun a relationship with a beautiful photographer (Caroline Munro) of The Spy Who Loved Me), yet his vile compulsions remain. These are the atrocities of a human monster. This is the story of a Maniac."
