Freaky new trailer for Elijah Wood’s Maniac remake


A trailer for the remake of the William Lustig classic “Maniac”, starring ‘Hobbit’ Elijah Wood in the villainous title role, has been released.

This one, a rather bloody and slightly disturbing sneak peek if I do say so myself (turn down the speakers if you are at work!), was seemingly released at Cannes or in conjunction with Cannes as a sales tool.

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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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
