Blue Underground has announced Maniacfor release on a two-disc special edition Blu-ray on October 26. Directed by William Lustig and featuring landmark gore effects by Tom Savini, this relentlessly shocking and disturbing film was originally censored all over the world due to its graphic violence. Blue Underground presents it in a new 2K transfer from the original uncut and uncensored negative, with hours of brand new extras.

Special features include:

* Audio commentaries:
o Co-producer/director William Lustig and co-producer Andrew W. Garroni
o William Lustig, special make-up effects artist Tom Savini, editor Lorenzo Marinelli, and Joe Spinell's assistant Luke Walter
* Anna and the Killer: interview with Star Caroline Munro
* The Death Dealer: interview with special make-up effects artist Tom Savini
* Dark Notes: interview with composer Jay Chattaway
* Maniac Men: interview with songwriters Michael Sembello and Dennis Matkosky
* Theatrical trailers
* TV spots
* Radio spots
* The Joe Spinell Story
* Maniac Publicity
* Maniac Controversy

I am surprised they didn't include the Maniac 2 promo reel that he filmed before he died

I forgot, is this the film where Savini's "head" explodes?

Why, yes it is. Savini shoots his own head off in this little bit of sickness. I was never a fan of this one, I just think it's too mean spirited. But it does have some great gore gags if I remember correctly.
