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 Rings 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.
