31 Days of Halloween - Day 21 "Maniac"

Join us all October long as we spotlight different horror movies every day with a brand new video!

I don't approve of many remakes, since more often than not, a good film is being remade. The original Maniac starring Joe Spinell is not a good film. It's very exploitative and feels less like a character study and more like a therapy session. So the idea of Maniac being remade has never upset and more often intrigued. The 2012 remake brought in unique talent both in front of and behind the camera.

While the kills go a little far, I think there's a point to them more than just being needless violence. The first person perspective really puts us Frank's head and are able to see just how screwed up he really is.

I'd like my writing to further represent me as a person by providing different insights into the things currently on my mind. Whether it's writing about a movie, TV show, album, book, wrestling event, experience, or life lesson. I don't plan on making this a personal blog where I treat it like a diary. This is just supposed to represent… Me.
