Not-Bad Remake of an Unwatched Original

5 years ago at Nov 13 17:24
Admittedly, I have never seen the 1980 original of "Maniac," which, for all it's guts and gore, turns out to be a pretty decent psychological slasher movie. Physically Elijah Wood isn't a great stand-in for the apparently imposing, plain Joe Spinell but he still manages to turn in a good (if slightly over-acted) performance as the lead psycho.

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 Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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

The 50 Greatest Horror Movies of the 21st Century (50 movies items)

"Made in collaboration with Alexandre Aja and Grégory Levasseur, and with the sort of fearless artistic freedom often allowed by European financing, Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac begins with a psychopath’s synth-tastically scored stalking of a party girl back to her apartment, outside which he cuts her frightened scream short by driving a knife up into her head through her jaw. The film deceptively delights in capturing the mood of an exploitation cheapie before latching onto and running with the"

1 - Elijah Wood! (27 movies items)

" Due to the camera perspective shooting, we loose all of Wood's body language and nuances that he could've successfully brought to the character.
