“None of the individual segments feels of lesser quality than the rest, either in content or in technical quality. As nice as it can be to settle in with some filmmakers we’re familiar with, it’s also nice to find new ones and check out their work, and this one has a good mix of both. Maniacal represents what a well put together, independent horror film can be, despite the lack of budget or star power.” Horror News

Maniacal is an anthology shot by a wide range of British directors which consequently has a bit for everyone, from the darkly comedic to the downright creepy, the gruesome to the atmospheric. And even if the films are of slightly varying quality, the general standard is very high” Search My Trash
