Some interesting news coming out of the camp behind the upcoming remake of the William Lustig film, Maniac. Read on for the chilling details concerning why you should heed the warning not to go out tonight.

According to Badass Digest the entire film would be shot in POV (from the killer’s Point of View) with star Elijah Wood only appearing in reflections cast on mirrors and other reflective surfaces, but their story was then corrected to state that the POV technique would only be employed during the killer’s moments. Interesting.

In other Maniac news, KNB announced today via their Facebook page that they would be handling the film’s effects, so let’s hope for some good old fashioned scalp-a-mania™ to return.

Directed by Franck Khalfoun and produced by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Lavasseur, Wood plays the role of a serial killer who works at a shop that sells antique mannequins. He finds victims on the Internet and stalks them like prey, all the 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. It will shoot later this year.

    I heard about this movie but didn’t know that it was a remake of Maniac. Kinda weird to see someone as good-looking as Elijah Wood stepping into Joe Spinell’s grimy shoes.
