Franck Khalfoun’s stunning Maniac remake is getting prepped to stalk US cinemas, and in the build up to the films release on 21st June, a new trailer and two posters have been unleashed.
The trailer is another collection of scenes we have had before in the UK trailer, but there is also some new stuff, and thankfully the films awesome soundtrack is used to brilliant effect. The two US posters are rather excellent too: the first showing a creepy mannequin, while the second is more of an onslaught of chaotic and violent images. Check out all the good stuff below.
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.

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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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