Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In the heart of San Francisco, the legions of the damned lay waiting beneath the Golden Gate Bridge. As night falls, this battalion of butchery in unleashed upon the city to carve terror into the souls of the innocent. But when one young woman named Natalie (Leilani Sarelle of "Basic Instinct") escapes a bloody teen slaughter, she can't convince anyone that a rampaging army of psychotic 'monsters' has mutilated her friends. Now haunted, hunted and having a hard time in high school, Natalie must arm herself and her classmates for one final bizarre battle against the horror of the NEON MANIACS.

Gloriously campy and fun!

To try to tell the plot of this movie is like trying to tell someone about a bad dream,it was real to you but makes no sense to anyone else.
John D. Page
He passes a big metal door beneath the bridge and finds a bunch of Tarot-like cards in a bleached white cattle skull (sure, why not?).

There is one virtue in having a movie that just jumps headlong into a mindless and disoriented story---at least there's no slow beginning to put you to sleep. Not coincidentally, this is the case with Neon Maniacs, a movie that involves a little maniac but virtually no neon. I remember as a young lad of about sixteen seeing bits and pieces of this movie, and since I had never again endeavored to look for it, until, by happenstance, now, I had begun to believe the movie to be something mythic. But no, it's real, right down to the latex masks. Apparently, these cataclysmic goons live inside a bridge, and they have a deck of Tarot cards with their likenesses. The Neon Maniacs are the Village People of the Horror world. You have Samurai Maniac, Biker Maniac, Army Maniac, Doctor Maniac, Indian Maniac, Monkey Maniac, Crossbow Maniac, Robo-Maniac, and the list just goes on and on.
Earlier on (like in the first five minutes) you have this pretty high school girl emerge unscathed from the massacre of her friends by the Neon Maniacs, because the Maniacs are chased away just before they can finish the last girl, by rain, because the Maniacs, for reasons unknown, turn to green slush when they come in contact with water. So, the pretty girl, the sole survivor, bravely goes back to school, where she is pestered about the disappearance of her friends, and then suspended from school because she claims monsters (the nefarious Neon Maniacs) as the culprits. Fortunately, her time spent lounging around the house gives us the opportunity to see her poolside in a bikini. Hoo-wah! Anyhoo, eventually she teams up with her boyfriend and a younger horror-fan girl, and they prepare to do battle with the Maniacs.

Neon Maniacs takes me back to my younger days when late night television was a veritable smorgasboard of underrated and highly enjoyable B horror films. This film makes me long for the days of USA Saturday Nightmares and TNT Monstervision. Set in San Francisco, this far fetched tale of crazed monsters on the rampage is a great way to recall those low budget horror masterpieces from the 80's. If you are looking for a film with big name actors, highly developed storylines, and million dollar FX then this film is probably not for you! If, however, you are searching for a fun way to waste some well earned R&R and love this film genre then look no farther than Neon Maniacs. For anyone who is a fan of B horror films I give this film 4 stars, and highly recommend it!

Beware! The gates of heck have been thrown open, unleashing the NEON MANIACS! Virtually unstoppable, these odeus freakers are immune to every known defense, save one. It's a rare chemical known to savvy scientists as "H-2-O"! So, unless it rains, or someone uses a squirtgun on them, these maniacal murderers will inherit the globe! Sure, their get-ups are dorky and their shambling needs work, but hey, their masks are fairly cool! Leilani Sarelle is okay as Natalie, the girl who knows too much about these critters. Donna Locke (in her one and only role, ever) is very good as Paula, the horror-obsessed / Nancy Drew type gal who tracks the Maniacs to their lair. She's probably my favorite character in NM, as she reminds me of the horror movie nut in DEADLY SPAWN. The rest of this movie is hit and miss, w/ the "battle of the bands" sequence being the most wretchedly inept part. I cheered when the Maniacs arrived, hoping for an 80s big-hair bloodbath. Alas, only a scant few were slaughtered, leaving the vast majority to run aimlessly back and forth in the gym. What good are maniacs that can't wipe out a gaggle of trapped teenagers?? Sheesh! I also had my hopes up for a rainstorm flesh-melting massacre ala DEVIL'S RAIN. Nope, just a little sprinkle! Still, NEON MANIACS is harmless, mindless fun if you're in the right mood...

NEON MANIACS is a slice of B-Movie greatness that is overlooked far too often. It offers all of the 80s Horror cliches that many fans grew up loving in its corny teen characters, synthesized electric score, and abundant latex monster designs. A lone teen survives a brutal attack by a group of mutant freaks beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, and she must convince two unlikely friends to help protect her when the monsters return to finish the job! The film is clearly a fan-made fantasy Horror effort that was used as an excuse to showcase the creative make-up and gore FX. Unfortunately, the concept was just too large for the script or director to handle. There are constant struggles with pacing as the plot meanders between a teen drama and full-blooded monster flick. The actionless exposition serves as nothing more than filler between the killings, stifled by throwaway characters and empty dialog Once the creeps hit the scene, though, it is all mindless murder and gratuitous gore, but these bloody moments are few and far between. Though it is a small film, it is given a large feel as the mutants take to the streets and subway in pursuit of the teens. This creates the impression of a city overrun by monsters in just a few short scenes. The maniacs themselves show an array of unique and interesting designs, creating a group not unlike the inhabitants of Midian from Clive Barker's NIGHTBREED, though lacking the mythical qualities and lore inherent in Barker's conceptions. In the end, NEON MANIACS is a mixed bag. It is awesomely entertaining at times, while mercilessly boring at others, but even in its worst moments, it remains a nostalgic look back at the height of 80s cheese.
