Stars: Elijah Wood, Nora Arnezeder, Liane Balaban, Morganne Slemp, Genevieve Alexandra, America Olivo, Sammi Rotibi, Sal Landi, Dan Hunter, Megan Duffy | Written by Alexander Aja, Gregory Levasseur | Directed by Franck Khalfoun

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.

Maniac Final Poster

5 June 2013 2:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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

2 February 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

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....
