I am turning this into the "Week of Hammer," fuck it! Sticking with our Hammer Films set chock full of rapidly declining quality movies comes The Maniac! A film with more heel turns than the WWE Network... and I don't mean just because they'll reinstate Hogan to the hall of fame but still act as if Benoit never existed!
|Mustache rides: 5 cents|
This movie is just treachery everywhere. The American betrays the daughter for the mother but then betrays the mother because she was trying to betray him by not actually helping her husband escape but another man that murdered the husband upon escaping and the two of them were going to betray the daughter as well in hopes of... I don't know. I guess elope? Have crazy mustache babies?
I'm really beginning to regret not shelling out the extra $10 for the better Hammer Films set. The Maniac was just as poorly paced and boring as the last two films. The acting was decent, aside from the couple's dance where the two couldn't look more bored with each other despite one of the characters saying "look how happy she is!" Whatever, fucking next. I'm over this.
I give The Maniac 0 butane torches out of 5:
