New Trailer For ‘Maniac’ Masterfully Captures The Film’s Tone

Maniac

I saw Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac last weekend. And I almost agree with Mr. Disgusting that it’s a masterpiece. I say “almost” because there’s just a few things here and there that kept me from pure elation – but I’d definitely give it at least an 8/10 (Brad gave it a 9/10 in his review). It’s horror’s Drive, stylish moody and addictive. And I have a feeling I’ll like it even more a second time.

Definitely check this out when it opens in select theaters, iTunes and on VOD platforms June 21. I know I’ll be seeing it again. Meanwhile, this trailer is pretty much nails the tone and may be the best promo reel we’ve yet seen for the film.

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 Frank (Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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

    This movie is pretty great. The SO and I watched it about a week ago and both thoroughly enjoyed it. It isn’t a gory slasher but more of a psychological thriller. The way it was filmed was refreshing and it defiantly gave you the creeper vibe. Frodo was very good in it.

    This film was incredible. I never thought this would be able to come even close to the original but to me it was as good or better in certain aspects. I thought the score was phenomenal as well. I actually watched this film twice within two days and I cant remember a film in the last 15 years or so that I have done that with. Everyone involved with this gets an A. This is EXACTLY how a fuckin remake should be done if it has to be.

    OK guys, questions for you all. IMDB has the movie listed at 89 minutes. But the upcoming DVD release on Amazon France has it listed at 93 minutes.
    Does Amazon France have it wrong? Or are there 4 for minutes of carnage that most haven’t seen?

    Please let me know if you know.

      coldblood, from what i understand there is an R rated version AND an unrated. i don’t know about each version’s running time but there are 2 versions to be aware of.

      It could also be you are looking at an NTSC run time on IMDB compared to Amazon France that operates under a PAL format.

        Formatting doesn’t change run time.
