Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac starring Elijah Wood as the owner of a mannequin shop who develops a dangerous obsession with a young artist played at the Cannes Film Festival this year, but I didn’t have a chance to see it. It has since played in Melbourne, Zurich and most recently Chicago. IFC Midnight holds domestic distribution rights to it and has not yet set up a release date, but it will be hitting French cinemas the day after Christmas and as a result Warner Bros. France has released a new red band trailer for the film for you to consider.
Just sifting through the trailer for the screen capture above I can tell you this is going to be one gruesome picture as that image above is hardly indicative of the blood shed in the trailer alone.
Here’s the complete synopsis:
You can check out the red band trailer below and I also have another one which was released during the Cannes Festival right here if you’re interested.
