Patricia Farley in Maniac / Narcotic

Maniac / Narcotic

1934 NR

Produced outside the studio system, these two exploitation classics take on themes that explicitly violated the Motion Picture Production Code of the time. Narcotic follows the downward spiral of a medical student as he embraces drugs, brothels and finally the barrel of his own revolver. Maniac offers a tour through the mind of a bona fide lunatic, distorted by fragmented scenes and ugly realities that mimic insanity's warped perspective.
