“Why are you scared? WHY!!!” Savage, brutal and seriously intense NSFW full length trailer arrives for ‘Maniac’





After a teaser trailer for director Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac remake came online and was taken down almost instantly, the full length trailer has now arrived. Thanks to Twitch.com we have that trailer right here for you, but be warned, it is very very NSFW and should be viewed with caution. If you are easily offended or shocked, then it’s best you prepare yourself for one of the finest horror trailers I have seen for a while.

The atmosphere and style being showcased here is superb, and while I am not usually one for remakes, this new version of the classic 80’s slasher looks incredible. Elijah Wood also appears to be very strong in the role of the psychotic Frank, and I just adore the visual style here. The film is shot mostly from the killers point of view, and from what I have read, any actual shots of Frank will be from his own reflections.

Maniac is directed by Franck Khalfoun, and Alexandre Aja is on writing and producing duties. Elijah Wood is playing the role of the killer, Frank, with the gorgeous America Olivo playing his Mother. Nora Arnezeder, Liane Balaban, Morgane Slemp, Sammi Rotibi and Sal Landi also appear in the film.

Synopsis:

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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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

A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present-day LA, MANIAC is a re-boot of the cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made – an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
