10 NEW STILLS FROM THE MANIAC REMAKE STARRING ELIJAH WOOD

Ten new stills from the upcoming MANIAC remake based upon the Bill Lustig grindhouse classic of the same name have been released to the web.

Recently picked up for all North American rights and distribution by IFC Midnight, the film stars Elijah Wood as a psychopathic serial killer. The film premiered out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

Written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur, MANIAC is a reboot of director William Lustig’s 1980 cult pic of the same name.

Thomas Langmann, Aja, Levasseur and Lustig produced the remake, while Antoine de Cazotte, Daniel Delume, Andrew W. Garroni, Pavlina Hatoupis and Alix Taylor are attached as executive producers.

SYNOPSIS:

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.
