Maniac, the remake starring Elijah Wood and directed by Franck Khalfoun, is getting a collectible VHS on October 22nd through Mondo Video.
A total of 500 copies of this limited edition will be available in a clamshell case with a randomly inserted purple cassette.
In this 21st century Jack the Ripper story set in present-day Los Angeles, Frank leads a deceptively peaceful life. To the outside world, he’s a withdrawn and somewhat eccentric owner of a mannequin store. But his quiet façade masks an inner rage that forces him to brutally kill and scalp the women who get too close to him. When a young artist named Anna (Nora Arnezeder, Safe House) appears one day at Frank’s shop and asks for his help with her new exhibition, Frank develops an obsession with her that threatens to completely destroy his already fragile psyche. Soon the streets become unsafe for any woman after dark as this newly awakened maniac begins to stalk and kill.
