I was beginning to wonder what happened to the remake of Bill Lustig’s Maniac. It turns out that IFC Midnight will release the picture some time next year. This isn’t surprising as a remake of the film wasn’t something everyone was clamoring for. Yet with a certain Hobbit, Elijah Wood, starring in the lead role one would think it would get a bigger release. This reboot/ remake of the 80’s cult classic film was written by Alexandre Aja (Hills Have Eyes, P2) and Gregory Levasseur (Mirrors, High Tension). Check out the new (NSFW) trailer below.
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.”
