Check out the first six minutes of the upcoming slasher-horror remake "Maniac," starring Elijah Wood as an ordinary mannequin store owner by day and psychopathic killer roaming the streets by night. Here in this uncut opening scene, we look through the eyes of the killer as he trolls the streets searching for his prey.
The film, written and produced by Alexandre Aja (2006's The Hills Have Eyes), has just been released in France, and should be coming to the States sometime next year.
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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
