The remake of Bill Lustig’s Maniac will be released in North America by IFC Midnight. However, it doesn’t seem to have an official release date outside of a few film festivals. Yet, some how we have the first 6 minutes of the film online?! The reboot/ remake of the 80’s cult classic film was written by Alexandre Aja (Hills Have Eyes, P2), Gregory Levasseur (Mirrors, High Tension) and features Elijah Wood in the lead role.
The Plot: ”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.”
