Franck Khalfoun’s remake of Maniac looks scary as hell. Imagine Elijah Wood from movies like Lord of the Rings where he plays a timid halfling. Fast forward and he stars in Spin City in which he showed us a terrific bad guy. Now Elijah Wood is set out to play a real brutal killer in Maniac, I can’t wait.
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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
