Maniac..
7 January 2019 | by ulyssesmierSee all my reviews

Dude I love this movie/ now I'm not saying the original wasn't not great, it was amazing. But this remake was pretty sweet. Alot of gore and great kills. Elijah wood did a great job That dude was on top of his game when he did this movie. Aldo like all the first person killings. Though it brought a little kick to making the movie better.

If your a horror movie lover / serial killer movie well .. see it
