When hobbits go bad, they look like Elijah Wood murderin’ women in “Maniac”, a redo of the 1890 movie of the same name by William Lustig. Check out some set images from Wood’s latest, which finds the former happy-go-lucky hobbit engaging in some, er, not so happy-go-lucky actions with an unfortunate female victim.
“Maniac” finds Wood playing Frank, a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins, who gets his jollies off murdering women in an attempt to exact revenge against his mother, who had, not surprisingly, abused the little chap when he was a wee tyke.
“Wrong Turn at Tahoe” and “P2’s” Franck Khalfoun directs. Wood stars, with Hank Azaria, Nora Arnezeder, Sal Landi, Délé Ogundiran, and Dan Hunter in the cast. “Maniac” features a screenplay by co-writer Alexandre Aja of “Piranha 3D” fame (though for my money, he’ll always be the guy who gave us the ridiculously entertaining “High Tension”).
