quietearth [Celluloid 05.17.12] France horror thriller crime



While the majority opinion seems to be that Elijah Wood has pulled off playing a serial killer, I'm not convinced. A remake of William Lustig's 1980 classic, this Franck Khalfoun directed Cannes premierer looks great.. until Frodo shows up. Have your say!

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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.

A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present-day LA, MANIAC is a re-boot of the cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made - an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.




And here's the original Maniac trailer:

I think he is sufficiently creepy, he is a weird looking fella, kind of stuck in childhood or something...
