Maniac - International Trailer (United Kingdom)

Reported by Outsiders - 2013.02.13

So, what's behind Elijah Wood's piercing blue eyes? Well, apparently, it's the soul of a psychotic killer with a twisted penchant for slicing women's scalps. Who knew Frodo could be soooo damn creepy? Get a load of a deeply-disturbed Woods in this new UK trailer for the slasher flick "Maniac," in which he plays a mannequin store owner who develops a murderous thirst for young ladies.

The film is a modern-day remake of William Lustig's cult horror pic, and it was produced and written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur (the creative team behind the The Hills Have Eyes remake). Director Franck Khalfoun puts his own spin in this version by shooting most of the film through Wood's point of view. Get a taste of the killer's ghastly visions as he cruises the streets for his female victims in the new preview, posted above.

Though a US release date has not been announced, "Maniac" will open theatrically in the UK, starting on March 13th.

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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
