Maniac (2012)

Directed by
Franck Khalfoun

Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder star in Franck Khalfoun's remake of the 1980 serial-killer slasher horror, shot largely from the visual perspective of its central protagonist. 'Maniac' is an incontrovertible description of ostensibly mild-mannered mannequin shop owner Frank Zito. As the narrative unfolds, the catalyst for Zito's horrific actions is revealed, but the experiences he underwent as a child are utterly overshadowed by his reaction to them: a compulsion to stalk, kill and scalp women. He then arranges his trophies upon the heads of his collection of dummies. So, when artist Anna turns up at Zito's shop, interested in using his mannequins in a project, it's a safe bet that something is going to happen. And it does, in deadly fashion. But not necessarily as you'd expect.
