A full red-band trailer for the remake of Bill Lustigâ€™s cult hit â€œManiacâ€ has been releasedâ€”replacing an earlier teaser that was leaked online.
Here is the synopsis:
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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.Â Â
A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present-day LA, MANIAC is a re-boot of the cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made – an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.
The slasher movie stars Elijah Wood (â€œLord of the Ringsâ€) and Nora Arnezeder (â€œSafe Houseâ€).
The Franck Khalfoun-directed horror movie does not have a release date yet.
