There’s good news for horror fans: Maniac, a new slasher directed by Franck Khalfoun (Wrong Turn at Tahoe) and co-written and produced by Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes), is finally going to get a limited release in the Us this summer. We’ve been looking forward to this one ever since the first six suspenseful minutes were released online as a teaser.
Elijah Wood is at the center of this film – literally – as Frank, the introverted owner of a mannequin store who goes off the deep end after the death of his mother and begins killing and scalping women, using their hair as gruesome decorations for his mannequins. Maniac‘s unusual quirk is that it appears to be filmed entirely from the first-person perspective of Frank, with Wood only appearing onscreen when the character catches sight ...

Today we have a new poster for Elijah Wood's upcoming "Maniac" remake, which has been getting great reviews at film festivals. Check out the poster below, which features a tagline taken from the original 1980 horror movie. Plot: 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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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. The new movie is directed by Franck Khalfoun (P2, Wrong Turn at Tahoe) from a script by Alexandre Aja (director of "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Piranha"). It will hit theaters in the UK on March 15th. A Us release has yet to be set. »
There are many sides to Elijah Wood's acting career. One is the Frodo in Lord Of The Rings side, another the Kevin in Sin City side. As you can probably tell from this exclusive poster below, Maniac is definitely in the latter category.Directed by P2 and Wrong Turn At Tahoe's Franck Khalfoun, it's a remake of the 1980 film of the same name, with Wood playing Frank Zito, a disturbed young man who becomes a ruthless serial killer until, that is, he meets Anna (Nora Arnezeder), and falls in a very strange form of love.The annoying thing about Frank's love is that it reveals itself in a rather disturbing and rather bloody way. Think... scalping, basically, and you're 100% there.To get a better look at the film, check out the very gory red band trailer below. As for the poster, designed by Sam Ashby, that's a much less red affair, »
