Elijah Wood's upcoming horror remake, "Maniac" has received this awesome "Making-Of" featurette, which offers us a look at some nice behind-the-scenes footage. Plus, writer/producer Alexandre Aja and director Franck Khalfoun reveal how they brought their own spin to the classic 80's slasher film.
Set to open in France on December 26th (US date has not been announced), "Maniac" sees Wood as a mannequin store owner who meets a beautiful young artist looking for an exhibition to host her talents. After agreeing to help her, he soon becomes fascinated by this new found friendship and in-turn triggers his first true love, massive serial killing.
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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
