BLOOD AND NUDITY IN OFFICIAL NSFW MANIAC REMAKE TRAILER

Last week a partial teaser for the MANIAC remake trailer hit the web. Whether released purposefully or not to raise interest, certain horror sites received cease and desist notifications after posting it. Not us, so we left it up. Not long after all the lawyering, however, an official complete NSFW trailer was released that begins in much the same way as the original leaked teaser but then things really get interesting with more insanity, violence, blood, and nudity which, needless to say, has us here at Backwoods Horror finding ourselves incredibly excited for the film.

That’s right, boils ‘n ghouls, we’re excited about a REMAKE! Elijah Wood simply oozes maniacal rage and insanity and this trailer doesn’t hold back on the goods. There are few remakes that can even hold a candle to the original, but if this trailer is any indication of what’s in store for Franck Khalfoun’s take on William Lustig’s masterpiece, this film may join the ranks of such remakes as THE THING and THE FLY.

SYNOPSIS:

Directed by Franck Khalfoun (P2), and written by Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES remake, HAUTE TENSION) with his producing/writing partner Grégory Levasseur. MANIAC stars Elijah Wood (THE LORD OF THE RINGS) and Nora Arnezeder (SAFE HOUSE). In the film, Wood plays the role of a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins. Finding victims on the Internet, he stalks them like prey, all while suffering from hallucinations that throw him back into the past, when he was abused by his own mother. In his twisted mind, he gains a measure of revenge against his mother with each kill.
