Director William Lustig appears on Thursday, October 25th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Forbidden Planet for an exclusive meet and greet!
He is an exploitation titan with an insane list of genre-defining films like Maniac, Vigilante, and the Maniac Cop series on his directorial resume. Coupled with his work restoring and releasing under-appreciated cult classics through his company, Blue Underground, Lustig is and continues to be one of the most important and influential people in the world of genre cinema.
Pre-order the brand new Blu-ray release of the seminal New York City horror classic, Maniac. This limited edition Maniac Blu-ray is a new 4K restoration from the original 16mm camera negative and will not be available until December 11th, but if you come down to the event and pre-order a copy, you will receive the Blu-ray cover and a limited edition poster to get signed. Then, when the product is officially released, you can come back to Forbidden Planet to pick up your copy. But wait, that’s not all! Maniac will have a special reduced price of 29.99 at the event, what more could you ask for?
Immediately available at the signing will be DVD and Blu-ray copies of Lustig’s other films.
