A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present-day Los Angeles, Maniac is a re-boot of the cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful horror movie ever made.

Shy and withdrawn, Frank (Elijah Wood) keeps to himself, determined to keep his terrifying homicidal thoughts from becoming a brutal reality. His life changes when he meets a young artist who asks him for help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops, his obsession escalates and it becomes clear that long-repressed compulsions are on the brink of being unleashed.

Intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific, this is a downward spiraling nightmare into the mind of a killer that you’ll never forget.
