Join FEARNET's own Rob Galluzzo, Fangoria's Rebekah McKendry and Inside Horror's Elric Kane for their special 50th episode of the 'Killer POV' podcast with very special guest William Lustig, director of 'Maniac,' 'Maniac Cop,' 'Vigilante,' 'Relentless' and more!
For those of you that are fans of the 1980 seminal "slasher" cult classic 'Maniac,' we've got a treat for you. Not only are we streaming the original 'Maniac' on our website for free this weekend to celebrate the release of the new remake, we've got a brand new video interview with William Lustig, the director of the original giving us all of his thoughts on the new 'Maniac'!

If you're a horror fan, then you're either in one of two camps. You've either seen Bill Lustig's 1980 seminal "slasher" cult classic Maniac, or you haven't. And if you have, no doubt it's because of the legendary reputation the film has garnered over the years...
