Ok. You can officially colour me impressed.
I have run the full gamut of emotions on this one from anger and denial, all the way through to acceptance and intrigue but now, the full trailer has arrived for Franck Khalfoun’s remake of William Lustig’s Maniac…and it actually looks splendid.
Oh yes. So where is my hat? I’m sure I have to eat it…
The synopsis is as follows,
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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
Produced by Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes, Piranha 3D) and Gregory Levasseur, Maniac stars Elijah Wood (The Faculty, Sin City) and Nora Arnezeder (Safe House).
