Artistic, shocking and brutal NSFW international trailer lands for Franck Khalfoun’s superb ‘Maniac’ remake





I braved director Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac remake at this years Fright Fest, and for me it was the best film I saw. The Elijah Wood starring horror is an endurance test, a film that will truly test those who claim to be hardened horror fans. This was not an easy watch, but it was a remarkable film and incredibly well made. It has left a lasting impression on me, and it might take some time to build up the courage to sit through it again.

The latest trailer goes some way in showing the mixture of art and pure horror on offer here, and Maniac is NOT a film to be missed. You will need to have a strong stomach for this though I can promise you that! Check out my review here, and the new trailer is below.

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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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