Movies For Nimrods From The Vaults Of Archive.org: MANIAC (1934 - Dwain Esper)
From the absolutely essential Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film by Michael Weldon (click and get your own copy):
"Don't pass up an opportunity to see this incredible old adults-only oddity based in part on Poe's 'The Black Cat.' ...Highlights include the eating of a cat's eye, body snatching, two woman locked in a cellar fighting with syringes, a rapist who thinks he's a gorilla, and a bit of nudity in defiance of the Hayes Code...Esper and his scriptwriter wife Hildegarde also made Marijuana: Weed With Roots In Hell, and How To Undress In Front Of Your Husband."
