One of the perks and pains of owning Bloody Disgusting is that I get to see movies early – like, extremely early – which is great for pimping a film, but terrible for conversation. It still pains me that we can’t celebrate the release of All the Boys Love Mandy Lane here in the States, and from what I’m hearing, the release of Franck Khalfoun’s horror masterpiece Maniac is in jeopardy. I don’t know what’s going on just yet, but there’s word that IFC Films is having issues releasing the slasher remake starring Elijah Wood.
So, those of you in the UK need to celebrate the momentous occasion when Metrodome releases Maniac in UK cinemas on March 15. We’re huge fans here on Bloody, and are quite proud of our “A modern horror classic” quote; we stand behind it 110% percent. You’ll see it on the UK quad, as well as on the newly released UK trailer. On March 15 you’ll be able to write your own reviews and tell us if you agree. I’m dying to celebrate with some of you (if only I had an all region Blu-ray player).
In the remake, “Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.“
