Look, I'm no longer in the game of bagging on remakes. I've been doing this for far too long to be judgemental. So, when Franck Khalfoun (P2) stepped behind the camera for a remake of William Lustig's Maniac, with Alex Aja and Gregory Levasseur producing, I eventually shrugged my shoulders and took a "wait and see" approach. Now, I'm kind of eager to see it.
Maniac is premiering at the Cannes Film Festival and three official stills were released (via Playlist) showing off the eponymous killer himself, played by Elijah Wood.
Khalfoun has proven he's got a good eye (his background is in music videos) and with Aja and Levasseur scripting...we might have something cool. Head inside for more imagery.
