International Trailer Shows a Bloody Elijah Wood as A ‘Maniac’

Director Franck Khalfoun’s horror thriller is a re-imagining of William Lustig’s 1980 cult film, Maniac. Written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur; this remake stars Elijah Wood as a deranged serial killer who likes to stalk and torment his victims. From the early buzz surrounding its screening in LA, Maniac has been met with high praise. After seeing the unfinished trailer that released months ago I was already on board for this dark new vision. The idea of Elijah Wood as a maniacal serial killer was enough to get me interested but now with this new trailer, it’s safe to say that I’m sold.

“Wood plays the role of a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins. He finds victims on the Internet and stalks them like prey, all the while suffering from hallucinations that throw him back into the past, when he was abused by his own mother. In his twisted mind, he gains a measure of revenge against his mother with each kill.”

  1. This looks intense! I’m scared from watching the trailer alone! I wanted to love the original but found it lacking, this looks like the perfect remake! Can’t wait to see this.

    1. It’s definitely one of those remakes that I don’t see a lot of people getting too up in arms over. It looks very well done and the early reviews are extremely positive. Looking forward to it as well!
