New NSFW 'Maniac' Remake Trailer Hits The Net


The new NSFW (not safe for work) trailer for the Maniac remake has been released.  When news first broke that there was a Maniac remake in works, I was little bummed.  The original 1980 cult classic is one of my all-time favorite guilty pleasures.  I remember being young and seeing the VHS cover in Blockbuster and being too scared to rent it for that reason alone.

But now, after viewing this new trailer -- I am completely and enthusiastically excited for this new version starring Elijah Wood in the title role.  Without further ado, here you go...




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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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