IFC Midnight has acquired all North American rights to director Franck Khalfoun’s remake of the 1980 chiller “Maniac,” starring Elijah Wood.

Wood takes on the role of Frank, a withdrawn mannequin-store owner whose obsession with a young female artist unleashes long-buried murderous tendencies. “High Tension” screenwriters Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur wrote the screenplay for the film, which first screened out of competition at Cannes.

Maniac Remake

Maniac. 2012.

I for one am very excited for this, hopefully it will be faithful to the original 80’s pyscho sleazefest. Can Frodo top Joe Spinell? We’ll see. If you haven’t seen the original do it and do it now it’s a bloody mess!
