Trivia

This is for all practical purposes an unfinished film. Severe budget and production problems brought filming to a halt multiple times, at one point for such a long period that much of the cast playing the maniacs had to be replaced due to most of them not returning because of other obligations. Also a lot of the script had to be cut or altered to save money, and the originally intended final battle between the protagonists and the maniacs was never filmed, thus leaving the film with its rather abrupt and inconclusive released ending. It is also suspected that better explanations of the maniacs, their motivations and their origins was in the original script but never filmed due to said problems, no copies of this script have been found and the cast and crew either don't know or remember what the creature's backstory was intended to be, don't want to talk about it due to bitter feelings over the production or have since passed away.

excellent movie!
22 August 2001 | by jasonkiller25See all my reviews

after months of trying,i finally got me a copy of the hard to find horror movie"Neon Maniacs"the movie is really cool and it shows.the special effects are also a treat.i like how the maniacs had different weapons and looked different.except for"the thing"i hated that neon maniac.archer(has a crossbow) was one of my favorite.there was some gore mostly graphic violence(heads are sliced off,arms are sliced,arrows in backs etc.)enjoy if you like monsters with different weapons.
