Template:Infobox Film Maniac (Also known as Sex Maniac) is a 1934 black and white exploitation/horror film, directed by Dwain Esper and written by Hildegarde Stadie, Esper's wife.

The film, a loose adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe story "The Black Cat", tells the tale of a former vaudeville actor working with a mad scientist who attempts to bring life to the dead. The actor kills the doctor, and, in an effort to hide his crime, "becomes" the doctor, taking over his work, dressing like him, wearing his beard, and slowly going insane. The film features an actress named Phyllis Diller who is not the famous comedienne.

Maniac is in the public domain. A restored version was made available in 1999, as part of a double feature with another Dwain Esper film, Narcotic! (1933).
