2012, USA, Directed by Franck Khalfoun, Not Rated, 89 minutes, Blu-Ray.
Our Halloween Horror Fest continues with Maniac.
Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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.
A twenty-first century Jack the Ripper set in present-day L.A., Maniac is a re-boot of the cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made - an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.
