Nudity and extreme violence feature in brutal NSFW clip from Franck Khalfoun’s superb ‘Maniac’ remake

A savage new clip has gone on-line for what I believe is the best horror of 2013. Franck Khalfoun’s brutal remake of the 80’s slasher, Maniac, is an experience I will never, ever forget, and it by far THE horror film to watch this year.

Those with strong stomachs will get a very good indication of what to expect from this film in this shocking new clip. However, I must warn you that is is NSFW, and those easily offended should stay well clear of it. The clip see’s Elijah Wood as Frank taking a girl home for sex, and the clips shows not only the horrific violent content of the film, but cleverly shows off Khalfoun’s excellent choice of using a creepy POV way of filming. Basically, we see what the killer see’s! The whole clip is given a rather disturbing edge with the song “Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus playing in the background.

Directed by Franck Khalfoun, Maniac is written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur. Elijah Woodd stars as the killer Frank, and the rest of the cast includes Nora Arnezeder, America Olivo, Liane Balaban and Sammi Rotibi.

Maniac arrives in UK cinemas 15th March 2013.

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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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