Damn…looks like I’ll be eating crow. That opening shows great potential….still wish it didn’t have to use the title of Maniac or the character of Frank Zito. I think this could have easily existed as an original premise that merely paid tribute to the original. I think if anything, the idea of originality through homage resonates better with an audience rather than trying to piggyback on a predecessor’s notoriety and lazily branding it a “re-imagining”. Oh well...whatever sells I guess.
Whoa…awesome. Who hasn’t fantasized about strangling an annoying bitch with hideously ugly and nonsensically placed tattoos? Die hipster scum!
