Anyone old enough to remember or has seen Willam Lustig’s ace-but-infamous 1980 exploitation horror MANIAC, will be interested to see just how a new remake lives up to the original. Elijah Wood takes over the role of Frank, originally played by the late, great Joe Spinell, in which we followed a rather troubled psychotic man on an orgy of gruesome violence – and an obsession will a stunning female photographer. The film featured gag-inducing gore effects from make-up master Tom Savini.

Here we have the first images from the film that has P2 director Franck Khalfoun at the helm. MANIAC will also feature America Olivo, Nora Arnezeder, Sal Landi and Megan Duffy. The film is written and produced by PIRANHA 3D and THE HILLS OF EYES’ Alexandra Aja and Gregory Lavasseur.
