‘Maniac’ Review

Maniac
IFC Midnight

'A Clockwork Orange,' 'Last Tango in Paris,' 'Requiem For A Dream,' 'Enter the Void.' These are just a few fantastic movies that use shocking or disturbing imagery and totally earn it. Edit out the brutality or the frank nudity and you don't have the same movie.

Franck Khalfoun's 'Maniac,' like a pipsqueak runt in the back of the class shouting, "me, too! me too!" would no doubt claim its use of sickening gore and first-person perspective isn't an exercise in perversity, but a bold and daring test to see how far one can push an audience, and a springboard for conversation about violence towards women.

Don't believe it for a second.

‘Maniac’ First Six Minutes: See the World Through Elijah Wood’s Eyes

maniac-wood

While 'Maniac' doesn't mark the first time Elijah Wood has played a psychopath (remember his creepy turn in 'Sin City'?), it's certainly showing us a side of Frodo Baggins we've never seen before. Not that you'll actually see much of him in it. The film, a remake of a nasty 80s cult classic, takes place from the Wood character's point of view, so we'll only get to actually view his face in reflections.

If you want a peek inside the mind of this remake, the first six minutes of 'Maniac' have been released online and can be watched after the break!

Elijah Wood Gets His ‘Maniac’ On In This New NSFW Trailer

Studio 37
Studio 37

I don't know what's scarier -- a  6'8 knife wielding maniac or a knife wielding maniac the size of a mini refrigerator. Either one would suck, but we're thinking a dude the size of a Hobbit running at you with an open blade would kill you quicker because you'd be frozen in your tracks from laughing so hard. Although none of the victims in this trailer for 'Maniac' starring Elijah Wood are having a good time.
