Maniac 2: Mr. Robbie (1989)

**** (out of 4)

This five-minute short was produced by director Giovinazzo (Combat Shock) and star Joe Spinell and it was meant to be used to get financing for a sequel to William Lustig's hit Maniac but sadly Spinell died before the entire movie could be filmed. The story was to center on a television clown named Mr. Robbie (Spinell) who was abused by his father as a child so now, as an adult, he goes out and kills men who abuse their children. This clip features a basic set up followed by one of the murders and it's just as graphic as what was seen in the original film. The death scene is extremely graphic but it looks incredibly good for a promo film like this. It's a real shame that Spinell died because this could have been another wonderful treasure but at least we've got this short.
