Today we a restricted international trailer for the upcoming "Maniac" remake, starring Elijah Wood. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where it received very positive reviews. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: 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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
The new movie is directed by Franck Khalfoun (P2, Wrong Turn at Tahoe) from a script by Alexandre Aja (director of "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Piranha"). IFC will release it sometime next year.

No thanks. Another slasher flick trying to be art-house, when all it is is more violent misogyny masquerading as thrilling entertainment. Pass. Although I did like some of the initial night city cinematography.

This is the first 'horror' film to get my attention in a while, Elijah Wood is a decent actor, don't think I've seen him give a bad performance.

Wood was f*cking creepy in Sin City, but for about 10 minutes. Don't know about a full movie.
