Let’s face it, if you were inclined to see nice guy Elijah Woods’ turn as a serial killer in director Franck Khalfoun’s “Maniac”, then you probably already took the time to catch it at the dozen or so film festivals it’s been playing at for the last two years. But in case you missed it and still want to see it, the film will be getting a very limited theatrical release at the IFC Center and on VOD this VOD June 21, 2013.
Until then, check out a new poster for the film. Yes, it looks a tad familiar. Can you name the movie it’s cribbing from?
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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
Also starring America Olivo, Nora Arnezeder, Liane Balaban, Morgane Slemp, Sammi Rotibi, Sal Landi, and Genevieve Alexandra.
