This Alexander Aja penned and Guy Who Directed P2 directed remake of William Lustig’s Maniac shows a whole other side of Frodo. Filmed predominantly in the first-person, Maniac takes the viewer on the vicarious journey of stalking pretty French woman, cutting off their scalps and gluing them to mannequins. I’ll assume the film doesn’t force the viewer to also witness firsthand the purchasing of mannequins because that could kind of drag.

At a certain point in the trailer, the killer is revealed to be Elijah Wood. I’m sad to see him fall victim to the child actor’s curse. I’d thought he was better than that.

We all know that horror movie remakes suck. Except when Alexander Aja is behind the lens. The man is just so good at being disturbing. That’s why we suddenly find ourselves excited for the remake of Pet Sematary.

Paramount is actively trying to sign the Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D director to reanimate Stephen King‘s classic. It seems like a perfect marriage of talent and material. Should the deal work out, horror fans will have the rare pleasure of looking forward to an unnecessary remake knowing that Aja will bring something original and creepy to the film. So here’s hoping that a brand new generation have the opportunity to be mentally-scarred by Pet Sematary. (Twitch)
