Maniac

Writer-producer Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) and director Franck Khalfoun (P2), update director William Lustig's legendarily sleazy 1980 slasher Maniac by sticking cute, non-threatening Elijah Wood (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) in the lead role. Wood plays an utterly psychotic New Yorker who owns a mannequin shop and spends his nights dressing said mannequins up in the scalps of young women he's slaughtered. When he befriends an attractive photographer with a grim eye for beauty, he thinks he might have found a kindred spirit. But that doesn't last long. 89 minutes Unrated.
