Lord of the Ring's star Elijah Wood plays an insane cannibalistic killer in a new film called Maniac. We saw a short teaser trailer for the film not long ago, but now we've got a new red-band trailer that's got blood, violence, and breasts, so it's safe to say that the trailer is NSFW.
Alexandre Aja produced the Franck Khalfoun directed horror thriller. For those of you who don't know, this is actually a remake of a cult classic directed by Bill Lustig. It definitely looks like it will be an uncomfortable movie to watch. It's interesting to see Wood take on such a sinister role.
Here's the 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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
Check out the trailer and let us know if it's a movie you'll want to watch.
