Maniac will be released on June 21st and we have a look at the new trailer and poster. IFC Films will give the movie a limited theatrical release, and on the same day, the movie will be available on cable VOD, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video,, Xbox and Playsation platforms.

Starring Elijah Wood, Maniac is a remake of the 1980 William Lustig cult classic of the same name. The new movie was directed by Franck Khalfoun (High Tension,P2), and written by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur:

“Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 LA, MANIAC is a re-boot of the cult filmconsidered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made – an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.”
