Exclusive Maniac Poster

Mannequin on wire, anyone?

There are many sides to Elijah Wood's acting career. One is the Frodo in Lord Of The Ring**s side, another the Kevin in Sin City side. As you can probably tell from this exclusive poster below, Maniac **is definitely in the latter category.

Directed by P2 and Wrong Turn At Tahoe's Franck Khalfoun, it's a remake of the 1980 film of the same name, with Wood playing Frank Zito, a disturbed young man who becomes a ruthless serial killer until, that is, he meets Anna (Nora Arnezeder), and falls in a very strange form of love.

The annoying thing about Frank's love is that it reveals itself in a rather disturbing and rather bloody way. Think... scalping, basically, and you're 100% there.

To get a better look at the film, check out the very gory red band trailer below. As for the poster, designed by Sam Ashby, that's a much less red affair, all Cosmopolis-style neon colours and Enter The Void typefaces. The mannequin hands on strings are a nice touch too, though it's interesting that it's not a POV number - notable because the film itself is shot solely from the perspective of the Frank character...

Maniac is tearing into cinemas on March 15.
