Maniac gets an intense new trailer: watch now

Once again, it's not safe for work

Maniac has released a second official trailer, and just like the first one, this latest glimpse of Elijah Wood's lady-scalping nutjob is full of boobs, gore and creepiness.

Wood plays Frank, the reclusive owner of a mannequin store, whose serious mummy issues manifest themselves in an unfortunate penchant for abducting, scalping and murdering assorted young women.

Therefore, when local artist Anna asks Frank for help staging her latest exhibition, it seems as though things might not pan out so well for her…

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



If director Franck Khalfoun has managed to translate the off-beam weirdness of that trailer into the finished article, we could be in for a real treat, with Elijah Wood surprisingly unsettling as the titular lunatic.

Boasting a script from Piranha 3D revivalist Alexandre Aja, Maniac will open in the UK later in the year, with a specific release date yet to be confirmed.

What do you make of the new trailer? Tell us, below...

      Looks interesting but the whole "Boasting a script from Piranha 3D revivalist Alexandre Aja" is enough to put me off

      I think the description of "a lady-scalping nut job" and a film "full of boobs, gore and creepiness." Got me very interested then just as Chris put it "Boasting a script from Piranha 3D revivalist Alexandre Aja" nearly put me off as well but then I realised I probably won’t be watching this for the captivating dialect!

      This makes two new horror movies that I am very interested in seeing. Horror movies of late have not even been the slightest bit creepy save for very few here and there. Hopefully these two movies can bring a cautiously fear back into the genre. The other I am referring to is Lovely Molly, which actually looks pretty intense. I am cautiously optimistic. Wood looks downright upsetting in this film. http://www.videodetective.com/movies/lovely-molly/203403
