Previous photos and trailers from Franck Khalfoun’s remake of Maniac have shown Wood is can be even scarier and the first six minutes are very NSFW.
It shows Elijah Wood following in and murdering his first victim.
Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.
A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present-day LA, MANIAC is a re-boot of the cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made – an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.
Although this won’t be for everyone, but I do feel it is going to be an excellent slasher type movie.
