Watch the First Six Minutes of Elijah Wood's 'Maniac'


Elijah Wood has appeared in many movies before the Lord of the Rings trilogy and will appear in many more after, but to many people, he'll always be regarded as Frodo, the Hobbit who traveled into the heart of enemy territory to destroy the One Ring.

In Franck Khalfoun's remake of the 1980 slasher flick Maniac, Wood won't be doing anything so heroic. If you went in the movie expecting his role to be something along those lines, you'll be in for quite a surprise.

Wood plays a mannequin-store owner who is actually a deranged serial killer. Check out the first six minutes of the movie below. A word of warning, it's not for the squeamish.

IFC Midnight has acquired the North American distribution rights and a release date is forthcoming.

Besides Wood, Maniac also stars Nora Arnezeder and America Olivo.
