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.

Twitchfilm got the full-length trailer for Franck Khalfoun's remake of 'Maniac,' starring Elijah Wood as a killer who uses his knife for everything. Including cutting the power on electric boxes with his open blade. The film also stars Nora Arnezeder as Anna.

A teaser was shown at Cannes, but sites that ran it had to pull it until a more official trailer could come out. It looks like a creepy little thriller and hopefully it releases soon here in the States. Why should the Europeans have all the fun?


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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
