EXCLUSIVE TRAILER: Elijah Wood Stars In 'Maniac'

Posted: Updated:

Elijah Wood has come a long way from Middle Earth, judging by his latest film, 'Maniac', in which he plays a mannequin owner who develops an obsession with a young artist who comes his way.

HuffPost UK is pleased to host the worldwide exclusive trailer of this film - WATCH ABOVE.

'Maniac' premiered in Cannes in the Midnight Screening Session. Here's some blurb...

Just when the downtown Los Angeles streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new photo exhibition.

As their friendship develops and Frank's obsession escalates, it becomes clear she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.


And, in an interesting variation on a theme, 'Maniac' is shot completely from the killer's point-of-view.

'Maniac' is in UK cinemas fro 15 March 2013.
