IFC Midnight Apprehends a Maniac
The remake of the 1980 classic slasher flick Maniac has found itself a home, and that means it will soon be prowling around your neighborhoods just waiting to strike. We warned you not to go out tonight!
According to Deadline, IFC Midnight acquired North American rights to the Franck Khalfoun-directed thriller Maniac, with Elijah Wood playing the title role in the remake of the William Lustig-directed gorefest. Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur wrote the script for the film that made its debut out of competition at Cannes. Nora Arnezeder (Safe House) co-stars.
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Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
Look for more as it comes.
