Maniac TAGS

It's the booze talkin', We may have another solid year of horror in 2016!

Every so often I feel like we’ve been blessed as a horror fan. Yet it is increasingly more and more difficult when so much of what we see on the big screen is utter garbage.

Horror Whores: Maniac (2012)

Ever since it came out a couple years back I've been kind of iffy on the MANIAC remake. Don't get me wrong, it's easy to picture Elijah Wood as a litte psycho but just as a rule of thumb I'm usually stand-offish when it comes to remakes. I've got to say though, this one doesn't look half bad. For today's Horror Whores we're taking a look at MANIAC and a scene that kind of makes me want...

Looking back, if I had to think of six high points for the...
