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.

This, this right here is some gorey ass shit. Super disturbing and weird serial killer pov. Haven't seen the original don't know anything about that, it was okay but not suuper captivating, elijah wood is a top choice for this type of character though, that poor hobbit looking motherfucker really does look like he slices scalps in his spare time

Liked this, well executed and good in its own right. Not a patch on the origin but what is? Definitely worth a watch if you like good gore...

This movie feels like territory you should not be in. It’s like waking up in a killers shoes and being forced to love in them. Would recommend because it will F you up
