This is one of my most anticipated films of the year. Remaking the criminally underrated 80′s slasher film of the same name, Maniac tells the story of a serial killer who has an affinity for scalping his victims. Today, we would love to share with you a brand new trailer for the film.
Who is the serial killer, you might ask? Well, it’s Elijah Wood. Do you think that’s a weird casting choice? Watch the trailer and if you’re not immediately swayed, well, I just don’t know. He’s a perfect casting choice, and will bring a whole new level of discomfort to an already fantastic film. From what critics say, this film is extremely raw and very intense.
While the film does not have a release date yet, IFC is doing their best to get this out to the masses. That day cannot come soon enough.
Check the trailer after the break courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, and get excited for what will probably be one of the best horror films of the year.
