Blu-Ray & DVD Blue Underground Reveals Bonus Features for New 4K Restoration of William Lustig’s ‘Maniac’ Published 2 years ago on September 17, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet William Lustig’s ruthless 1980 horror classic Maniac is getting a new 4K restoration Blu-Ray release from Blue Underground on December 11th, stacked with some awesome bonus features. The Notorious Horror Classic! New 4K Restoration! Directed by William Lustig (Maniac Cop 2, Vigilante) and featuring landmark gore effects by Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, Friday the 13th), this relentlessly shocking and disturbing film was originally banned or censored all over the world due to its graphic violence. Now Blue Underground is thrilled to present Maniac in a brand-new 4K Restoration from its recently discovered 16mm original camera negative, overflowing with hours of new and archival Extras! Synopsis: “Frank Zito (a career performance by writer/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.” Disc 1 (Blu-ray) Feature Film + Extras: Audio Commentary #1 with Producer/Director William Lustig and Producer Andrew W.
