Somebody dies in the first six minutes. That means it’s a good movie. Do you buy Elijah Wood as a serial killer? That’s the essential question behind Maniac, a new thriller directed by Franck Khalfoun. It’s a remake, sure, of a classic William Lustig gore cheapie from 1980, but it’s got potential. Wood plays a mannequin shop owner who becomes obsessed with a young female artist and goes off the deep end into a spree of murder. Why not watch the first six minutes right now and see what you think? Maniac opens later this year.
