YMMV / Maniac

  • Jerkass Woobie: Yes, Frank is a psychotic killer... but, as you get the sense of how truly alone he is, its hard to not feel sorry for him.
  • He Really Can Act: This was Joe Spinell's opportunity to shine as a male lead, and by god does he shine with a disturbing and poignant performance.
  • Narm: As Frank is being ripped apart in the remake, he lets out a very Spongebob Squarepants-esque yell of "Augh! My leg!"
  • Signature Scene: The "Disco Boy" having his head blown off, along with the mannequins coming to life, and dismembering Frank.
