The first 6-minutes of Elijah Wood serial killer film Maniac has been released online for you to watch! The clip sets the creepy intense mood for the film, which is shot from the unique point of view of a serial killer.
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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
Maniac will be released in theaters in the U.S. sometime in 2013. It looks like it's going to be a solid horror film, and is it just me or has Wood always kind of had the look of a serial killer?
