Maniac Hits Blu-ray and DVD in October; Artwork Revealed





Maniac Hits Blu-ray and DVD in October; Artwork RevealedWith all of the incredible bits of artwork for the Maniac remake released throughout the year (and yes, there were many), it feels like an incredible letdown that IFC chose to go with this generic Photoshopped mess for the film's home video bow. Look for it in stores on October 15th.

Expect official details and specs soon.

Synopsis:
Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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. A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present day L.A., Franck Khalfoun's Maniac, produced by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Haute Tension) and composed by Rob of the band Phoenix, is a re-boot of the William Lustig 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 spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

Who the hell got paid to do that shitty artwork? That's horrendous.

I've always wanted to see a film shot in POV (NOT found-footage). Taking us into the mind of a maniac with that style was a stroke of genius! Really captured a realistic and unpleasant nature - well, for the most part.
Was pretty darn good.

Shame on the artwork... and here I was thinking our UK DVD covers for Maniac looked bland.
