Elijah Wood will be mixing it up a bit, playing a serial killer in the remake of William Lustig’s 1980 horror flick Maniac. The film was co-written by producers Alexandre Aja and Grégory Levasseur, with P2 director Franck Khalfoun helming. Wood plays Frank, a man obsessed with finding women on the Internet and killing them, all the while flashing back to the abuse his mother subjected him to. The teaser trailer for the series was just released today on The Hollywood Reporter.
The following trailer is not safe for work, with brief nudity, violence and lots of slashing sounds. Consider yourself warned.
