Elijah Wood loves horror films. Not the kind of thing you’d expect from a hobbit that talks to dogs. He is perfectly cast as the mousey introvert who loves three things: restoring French mannequins, his promiscuous mother, and scalping girls with pretty hair. It’s as brutal as it sounds and although the Norman Bates overtones are nothing new, the twist here is that the movie is shot almost entirely from the perspective of the killer (making the audience responsible for each brutal act). Maniac is a rare remake that outshines it’s predecessor – it’s a dark, grim, extremely gory and an utterly compelling 80’s-tinged serial killer movie for those who can stomach it.
