Red-Band Trailer for ‘Maniac’ Shows Elijah Wood’s Dark Side
Written by Alexandre Aja, Grégory Levasseur and C.A. Rosenburg
Directed by Franck Khalfoun
Another slasher film remake? Haven’t we seen enough? Judging by Maniac’s red band trailer, we haven’t.
Elijah Wood as a serial killer sounds a bit far fetched. But, when you consider his turn as a silent, smiling cannibal in Sin City, you know he can get creepy when he has to. And don’t let the fact that this is a remake of a cult classic turn you off; the trailer presents enough disturbing POV shots to tell you that the production chose creativity over mediocrity. And, in the horror remake genre, that’s a triumph.
