IFC‘s remake of Maniac starring Elijah Wood is something that should be on everyone’s to watch list. The film will be released to VOD this upcoming June 21, 2013. Elijah has come a long way after playing timid Frodo in Lord of the Rings huh.
Synopsis: Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 and the number of victims increases, it becomes clear that Frank is far more dangerous than he seems. With a pulsating electronic score by Rob, the film is an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.
Synopsis: As he helps a young artist with her upcoming exhibition, the owner of a mannequin shop's deadly, suppressed desires come to the surface.
