Say it ain’t so Frodo! IFC Midnight acquired North American rights to the Franck Khalfoun-directed thriller Maniac, with Elijah Wood playing the title role in the remake of the William Lustic 1980 slasher pic. Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur wrote the script for a film that made its debut out of competition at Cannes. Frank (Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 his long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill. »
