New US Trailer & Poster For 'Maniac' Remake


Maniac remake US poster - Elijah Wood

We've seen Franck Khalfoun's remake of William Lustig's "slasher" shocker 'Maniac' and we loved it. And now after a several festival screenings and an overseas release, the Elijah Wood fronted flick will finally hit US theaters for a limited engagement on June 21st courtesy of IFC Midnight! With that news also comes both a brand new US poster (above) and a new trailer. Alexandre Aja & Gregory Levasseur (best known for their remakes of 'The Hills Have Eyes,' 'Piranha 3D,' and their original French cult classic 'High Tension') are the producers behind this update along with original director Bill Lustig. The new trailer below is a pretty good tease of what to expect from the point-of-view style feature, but most notable is the really terrific original score by the composer simply listed as "Rob." Have a gander and while there will be a VOD option to see 'Maniac,' we strongly suggest getting out and seeing it on the big screen when it opens on June 21st.
