Maniac

R / 89mins / Horror, Thriller / June 14, 2013 (Limited)

Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 21st 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 spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

"Maniac" stars America Olivo, Elijah Wood, Genevieve Alexandra, Hank Azaria, Morgane Slemp, and Nora Arnezeder.

Directed by Franck Khalfoun.
Written by Alexandre Aja.
Produced by Alexandre Aja, Grégory Levasseur, Liane Balaban, Thomas Langmann, and William Lustig.
Production company/distributor: IFC Films.
