Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mania is an "omnibus" film courtesy of Canadian director Paul Lynch. If you haven't heard of Lynch, you might be familiar with some of his films: Prom Night, Bullies, Humongous. This 1986 effort is a TV-style horror anthology (very likely intended for small screen) concerning four separate terror stories, united by a gritty urban setting. The film runs 120 minutes, a bit too attenuated for its subject matter. The cast of Mania is comprised of Canadian actors who are best known in the U.S. for their voice-over contributions to Saturday morning cartoon shows: Deborah Grover, Stephen B. Hunter, Lenora Zenn, Wayne Robson.
