Grindhouse releasing has announced it’s theatrical re-release of Bill Lustig’s sleazebucket horror classic MANIAC, and I have created the disturbing new poster art which will haunt theatre lobbies. It’s a real honor to pay homage to the film this way, and to the late, great Joe Spinell. When I saw Bill Lustig’s MANIAC for the first time, I literally got sick to my stomach. It was back in the heyday of the slasher film, you know, back in the early eighties, but this wasn’t really a typical slasher film at all.

I’ve been working with Grindhouse on and off for well over ten years now, and they are amazing. That company basically amounts to Bob Murawski and Sage Stallone (yeah, THAT Sage Stallone) sitting in a room together and hatching crazy schemes to take over the world. They’re both pretty major players in Hollywood, but they’re completely insane.
