‘Maniac’ Trailer: Very NSFW Footage From the Elijah Wood Thriller

Maniac
Blue Underground

The remake of ‘Maniac‘ starring Elijah Wood continues to release awesome trailers, like this new international one that’s very bloody, very creepy, and very not safe for work.

While we still have no official release date for ‘Maniac,’ the film has been making the festival rounds and pleasing crowds since its premiere at Cannes back in May. We’re hearing good things about the remake of William Lustig’s 1980 slasher film, which is directed by Franck Khalfoun (‘P2′) and produced by Alexandre Aja, the French filmmaker with a taste for remaking horror flicks, like ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ and ‘Piranha.’

Elijah Wood takes the lead role in ‘Maniac’ as Frank, an introverted and disturbed owner of a mannequin store (they have those?!) with a irrepressible desire to murder and scalp women because unlike love, hair lasts forever. Much of the film, as illustrated in the new trailer below from The Film Stage, seems to be told from the perspective of Frank — lots of POV shots and using mirrors to let us get a look at this creepy character. The new trailer is also much more violent than the previous ones that have been released, with the horrific slash of an Achilles’ tendon and Wood getting scalp-y in bed with a young woman. Also, if you like naked boobs, there’s some of that, too.

We’re on the edge of our seats just dying to see ‘Maniac,’ but until then we’ll just watch this gruesome and unsettling trailer again:
