Directed by William Lustig and featuring some incredible special effects work from Tom Savini, Maniac is the story of a deeply disturbed man who is haunted by his traumatic childhood. Overwhelmed by the memories, he prowls the streets of New York, terrorizing young women.

In Italy, it was considered the 'unofficial sequel' to DAWN OF THE DEAD. In England, it was known as ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS and banned. In America, it was called Zombie, a splatter horror sensation directed by Lucio Fulci that remains one of the most graphic horror hits of all time! Strangers searching for a young woman's missing father arrive at a tropical island where a doctor desperately seeks the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of the undead.
