DVD review: Manniac

Manni is a looser of epic proportions, he´s a peeping tom, he has no girlfriend, his so called friends ridicule and harass him. Soon Manni  begins to break into the homes of the women he spies on and killing and raping them and that´s just the beginning as he becomes more and more insane.
Manniac is directed by A. Simona, it has a running time of approx 120 minutes and is filled to the brim with nudity, explicit sex and occasional gory killings. The film looks and feels cheap with bad camera work, bad sound effects, lousy acting and bad editing. Manniac features several lengthy scenes of sex and masturbation but the actresses are unattractive and these scenes (which take up the main part of the films running time) quickly become very boring and tiresome.
The special fx is mostly bad and very amateurishly done but there are one or two exceptions but I won´t spoil the fun if you´re still interested in seeing the film (I hate spoilers).

The review is based on a DVD released by A Simona Film. it´s part of a limited print of 1500 numbered copies and I have number 556. It is uncut and it´s german language only.
Rating: 1 out of 7. I was at first a bit hesitant to review this film as it lacks english subtitles and my knowledge of the german language is a bit limited but Manniac is pretty straightforward. I my opinion Manniac is just boring. I have three suggestions to the director. First if you are going to make a film which features gratious nudity and sex you should make an effort to have a attractive female cast. Second shorten the the seemingly neverending sex scenes and thirdly add more killings, add more and better special fx.
