P2 helmer Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac, a remake of William Lustig’s cult horror film about a serial killer, has a partially complete trailer our of Cannes that’s actually pretty intense. The picture was written by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D, Mirrors, High Tension) and his producing/writing partner Grégory Levasseur. It stars Elijah Wood (The Lord Of The Rings and Nora Arnezeder (Safe House).
In the film, “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.”
Head inside to check out the trailer, courtesy of First Showing. It’s only partially complete but we’ll update when we have the whole thing. Oh, and it’s definitely NSFW what with all the nudity and killing etc…
