Maniac

Maniac

Directed by Franck Khalfoun

Elijah Wood stars in this gruesome remake of Bill Lustig’s serial killer classic about a troubled man whose childhood trauma leads him to murder and scalp beautiful women. Director Franck Khalfoun (P2) and screenwriter Alexandre Aja (HORNS) stick to the original’s story structure, but shoot the film entirely in first-person POV, which places the audience in the role of the killer, seeing what he sees and experiencing all the physical mechanics of murder in a uniquely chilling way. Dario Argento and DRIVE fans should appreciate the gorgeous Goblin-esque score.

The original is a special film no doubt about it, but it doesn't hold up well like chainsaw or The exorcist. A modern telling of the same story. Great acting by Elijah wood saves the movie and make it a decent remake which is rare.
