New gore-soaked trailer for Maniac: watch now

Definitely, definitely NSFW

Maniac has released a new red-band trailer, in which Elijah Wood perfects his lunatic routine as the scalp-happy proprietor of a store full of grizzly mannequins.

The film sees Wood star as the titular loner, who finds his life beginning to change when a pretty young artist asks him for help with her new exhibition. Little does she know, she’s asked the wrong guy…

The new trailer is startlingly violent and covered head-to-toe in blood, so if you’re of a nervous disposition, you might want to give it a wide berth. You have been warned…

Take a look, below…

Yep, that’s the first trailer we’ve seen in a while in which a woman is slowly scalped in front of the camera. Oh Elijah, whatever would Gandalf say, hmm?

Directed by Franck Khalfoun and co-starring America Olivo and Liane Balaban, Maniac will open in France on 26 December 2012, with a UK release to follow shortly after.

What do you think of the new trailer? Tell us, below!

      Some red band trailers barely live up to the expectation, but, my word, that one does. I think the achilles tendon got me more than the scalping at the end.

      Yeah, the ankle-cutting was pretty horrible - i didn't know they could put that sort of thing in a trailer, but at least it you know what you're in for. I want to see this, as I've heard it's good and has a Drive-like feel, but i'm worried that violence of this level could shake me up something special
