    I heard about this on AMC’s History of Horror.

    The soundtrack features some melodic fretless bass too!

    Reknowned horror makeup man Tom Savini has a (brief) onscreen appearance in this one, just as he did in Dawn of the Dead which you previously posted.

    Some interesting stuff behind the scenes from this one. Joe Spinell, the lead, was actually the highest paid actor from The Godfather (part 2 I think) due to how his pay rate worked out.

    Your title’s 50 years off though ;)

    Maniac is a rough one. The remake with Elijah Wood is pretty rough as well. I'm a horror fan, but one viewing of each was enough for me.
