100 Years of Horror: Maniacs (1996)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another very good entry in the series. This time out we visit the various maniacs throughout film history and this includes films such as HORRORS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM, HALLOWEEN, PEEPING TOM, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, DEMENTIA 13, MANIAC (both Esper and Lustig), Friday THE 13TH and 2000 MANIACS. The documentary covers even more films but the main thing is that we're dealing with messed up nuts and these have been very popular in the genre and especially in more recent years.

Once again if you're familiar with the genre then it's doubtful you're going to learn too much here. There's certainly nothing wrong with that since we're greeted with many great interviews including John Carpenter, Roger Corman, Hazel Court, Hugh Hefner, Donald Glut, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Fred Olen Ray, Jimmy Sangster and Caroline Munro. All of the interviews are nice but I do wonder why Munro was somewhat hard on MANIAC considering in other interviews she's very positive of it. Fans of the genre will certainly enjoy seeing the interviews but don't expect a full blown documentary on the subject as we're given just 22-minutes.
