The first 6 minutes of the slasher film Maniac have landed online, and they're pretty tense. Be sure to watch through to the end, unless you're particularly faint-of-heart:
Elijah Wood (The Hobbit) stars as Frank Zito, a lonely, mentally disturbed man whose mother's death sets him off. A deep desire to kill and scalp young women overtakes him, causing him to go on a killing spree. That is, until he begins to form a relationship with a potential victim.
Maniac is a remake of the 1980 horror movie of the same name. Nora Amezeder (Safe House), Liane Balaban, America Olivo, Jan Broberg, and Morgane Slemp also star.
Franck Khalfoun directs the film, which will open some time in 2013. Watch the Maniac trailer for more.
