A smart and stylish re-boot of William Lustig’s slasher cult classic, the new MANIAC is an intimate, daring and profoundly terrifying trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a murderer and his victims. Frank (an intense, unnerving Elijah Wood) is a withdrawn mannequin store owner whose life changes when a young woman appears asking for his help. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that his long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill has been unleashed.
