Maniac Synopsis

Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 L.A., Franck Khalfoun's Maniac, produced by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Haute Tension), and composed by Rob of the band "Phoenix", is a re-boot of the William Lustig cult film considered by many to be the most suspensseful slasher movie ever made - an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and projoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

Sure, it’s a gimmick like anything else, but it’s one of the more fitting gimmicks I can think of. Maniac, starring Elijah Wood as the mentally troubled Frank, is the kind of movie that probably never would have been made in the pre-DVD era, given its ridiculously dark tone and gory splendor. Khalfoun obviously made the film with a bigger budget than one would have had back then as well, so it looks quite slick throughout. I have to wonder how well the film will look transferred to a grainy magnetic tape.

When you think back to Elijah Wood's part in Robert Rodriguez's Sin City it's a lot easier to imagine him as a psychotic, blood-thirsty, cannibalistic killer and not just that kid from Flipper and Frodo from The Lord of the Rings. He has played other unstable characters since, most notably in the FX series Wilfred, but now he's back to doing it on the big screen as the lead in Franck Khalfoun's remake of William Lustig's Maniac.

After the insanely successful The Lord of the Rings films, Elijah Wood had a problem. After playing the wide-eyed Hobbit Frodo for three films, he was in serious danger of being typecast. If he didn't act quickly, he could be consigned to a future full of family films or acting opposite singing puppets. His solution? A turn in Sin City as the demented, mute serial killer/cannibal Kevin.
