To celebrate the US release of Franck Khalfoun’s stunning remake of Maniac, a brand new making of featurette has been released courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, and we have the shocking and very interesting video embedded below for you.
Maniac is the best horror I have seen so far this year, and there should be no excuse from any horror fan not to see it. Be warned though, a strong stomach is needed!
Franck Khalfoun’s astonishing remake of Maniac finally hits VOD in the US on June 21st, and lands on DVD and Blu-ray here in the UK on July 1st.
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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
