While aware that there is another Maniac review here on Nerdly, I felt the urge to review it myself after sitting down with the movie for the second time and being filled with the need to unleash words.

The original Maniac hit our screens in 1980 with Joe Spinell sludging up our televisions with his disturbingly dirty portrayal of Frank, the scalp obsessed nut-job with a heart of mould. It was a great horror movie with a fantastic lead performance and top notch gore courtesy of the maestro of visceral explosions, Tom Savini, who also has a small but memorable part in the original film.

Upon hearing the news a couple of years ago that Maniac was going to be

Maniac Final Poster

Maniac Final Poster
Armed with a razor-sharp hunting knife, Frank (Elijah Wood) goes on the hunt in Los Angeles for fresh victims in the latest poster for Maniac. Franck Khalfoun (P2, High Tension) directs this intense thriller that follows Frank as he tries to keep his bloodlust under control, when he meets a young art student (Nora Arnezeder) seeking help for her upcoming exhibit. Hopefully, for Frank's sake, he doesn't wander out in public too often clenching a knife and a fistful of human hair, because people tend to notice that type of bad behavior in L.A.

Maniac comes to theaters June 21st, 2013 and stars Elijah Wood, Hank Azaria, Nora Arnezeder, Sal Landi, Délé Ogundiran, Dan Hunter. The film is directed by Franck Khalfoun.

Mad Cowgirl Director Returns With Blue Dream

Director Gregory Hatanaka is, to put it mildly, a madman. His films are wild concoctions of disparate influences jammed together with an urgent energy, the sorts of things that seem steeped more in experimental theater than they do with any sort of mainstream film culture. He first came to attention here thanks to his 2006 effort Mad Cowgirl and he's back now with Blue Dream.James Duval, Dominique Swain, Pollyanna McIntosh, Kayden Kross, Noah Hathaway, Walter Koenig, Sal Landi and Richard Riehle star in the story of a news writer who finds himself caught up in a world of sex, drugs and corporate takeovers as he tries to solve a series of murders. This, of course, only scratches the surface of what Hatanaka is up to....

Elijah Wood’s ‘Maniac’ Remake Gives Us A Terrifying Look Behind-The-Scenes

P2 director Franck Khalfoun is the man behind the modern day remake of William Lustig’s 1980 exploitation classic Maniac. The original film (written by and starring the late, great Joe Spinell), told of demented Frank and his horrific killing spree on the streets of New York City, following years of childhood abuse. Elijah Wood takes over Spinell’s twisted role in a new script penned by horror remake masters Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur.

Check out this four minute international featurette (in English with French subtitles) taking us behind-the-scenes of the (re)making of a murderous masterpiece, which includes a look at the new chilling Pov-style scalpings.

Maniac co-stars America Olivo, Nora Arnezeder, Liane Balaban, Megan Duffy, Morgane Slemp, Sal Landi and Sammi Rotibi. The film is slated for cinemas in the UK from the 15th March 2013, while a Us release is still to be arranged.

Horrific New Stills From Elijah Wood’s ‘Maniac’ Remake

Growing up in the UK during the ‘video-nasty’ era of the 1980s meant I managed to see my share of demented and exploitative genre offerings. Amongst the mountain of dreck their really were a fair few gems that crawled under the skin and left their memorable mark. Once such effort was William Lustig’s Maniac (which also recently featured a scene in our greatest gory deaths feature), a superb, gruesome thriller focusing on damaged individual Frank, whose pent-up anger from early childhood abuse in let loose during the night on the sleazy streets of New York. The film was written and headlined by the great Joe Spinell and a remake is just around the corner.

Directed by Franck Khalfoun, Maniac will this time see Elijah Wood in the lead role of troubled Frank and while some of us here at Thn caught the impressive film at FrightFest (read our thoughts

Intense Teaser Trailer for Elijah Wood’s Maniac Remake

An incomplete French teaser trailer, unfortunately. But what you do get (around 90 seconds) is pretty intense, it is in English, and more importantly, Elijah Wood is pretty wicked.

Until then, this will just have to do. Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt.
