NSFW TRAILER: Elijah Wood Has Serious, Serious Issues In MANIAC

Hey, are you at work? No? Okay, proceed to watch the trailer below. However, if your boss or small children are present, you might want to wait until later. The preview below isn’t for the faint of heart.

This international trailer for Franck Khalfoun’s remake of MANIAC suggests that things are going to get very, very bloody (and complicated) for Elijah Wood’s character. Poor guy just wants to find a woman to love and scalp, why is that so hard?

Khalfoun’s film makes heavy use of a first-person POV and this trailer shows that. There are many, many shots from Wood’s perspective. I don’t know how I feel about that, it hasn’t worked for other movies (remember DOOM?). But maybe Khalfoun has figured it out and uses it to the film’s advantage. That’s a pretty big cinematic risk, let’s hope he nails it.

As for Wood, the guy seems all too convincing as a homicidal psycho. I wonder what sort of research he did for the part. On second thought, I don’t want to know.

MANIAC will hit our shores sometime next year.
