Maniac

 (2012)

Maniac Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank's obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.

For more about Maniac and the Maniac Blu-ray release, see Maniac Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Elijah Wood, Nora Arnezeder
Director: Franck Khalfoun

Maniac Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Franck Khalfoun's Maniac arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Metrodome Video.

Shot with the Red Epic camera, Maniac looks remarkably clean and crisp. There are many shots throughout the film that look like digital photographs (see screencaptures #5 and 8). Contrast levels are stable, though occasionally brightness fluctuations create the impression that image depth isn't consistent. All of these fluctuations, however, are inherited. Colors are stable and natural. There are no purely transfer-specific anomalies. Also, there are no stability issues to report in this review. To sum it all up, Metrodome Video's technical presentation of Maniac is indeed very impressive, which is why I believe that fans of the film will be very pleased with its transition to Blu-ray. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. Please note that there are a few promo trailers before the main menu appears. However, they are not forced and can be skipped on Region-A machines).


Maniac Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Metrodome Video have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Maniac was shot with a limited budget, but the lossless track makes this rather difficult to believe. The depth and intensity of the lossless track are quite impressive. There is also plenty of good surround movement, though you should not expect it to test the muscles of your audio system. The dialog is exceptionally crisp, clean, stable, and easy to follow.
