Last week someone got their hands on an incomplete trailer for Elijah Wood’s “Maniac”, and it was quite the intense little affair. Now here’s the full version, still pretty intense, and still pretty NSFW. The film was recently making the rounds over at Cannes, which is also where this French-subtitled trailer hails from, from the looks of it. No release date yet, but late 2012 is probably your best bet. Check out Woods being a killer, and try not to imagine Sean Astin appearing in the background trying to talk him down from his murderous ways.
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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
Starring Elijah Wood, America Olivo, Nora Arnezeder, Liane Balaban, Morgane Slemp, Sammi Rotibi, Sal Landi, Genevieve Alexandra, and directed by Franck Khalfoun.
