Franck Khalfoun’s remake of William Lustig’s classic ‘Maniac’ will be making its way to North American viewers next month, and with that IFC has released a new trailer and a couple new posters. Needless to say, I cannot wait for Maniac and I’m interested to see how to first person POV style will work. Maniac stars Elijah Wood and Nora Arnzeder, and will get a limited release as well as VOD starting June 21.
PLOT: Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
