A new year, new horrors to discover. What are we most excited about?
The remake of William Lustig’s 1980 grindhouse classic Maniac takes a new spin with director Franck Khalfoun in the driver’s seat. Elijah Wood stars as Frank, the titular maniac, who scalps women to work out his mommy issues. What sets the new Maniac apart from the old is that this one is all told from Frank’s point of view, which takes the gruesome film to a whole new level of unnerving fright. Maniac made the festival rounds during 2012, and I was lucky enough to see it. What I am looking forward to is the reaction of other horror fans when they get a chance to see this uncomfortable little flick.
I am intrigued to see what could bring original Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell back to the franchise (as a producer.) Although »
