Frodo is freaking me the eff out in the MANIAC teaser

Javi here. I'm not gonna lie that if it wasn't for Mondo, I wouldn't be so excited for this movie. You see, during the last year's Fantastic Fest, they offered the vinyl for a movie I'd barely heard of MANIAC. Being such a damn hipster, I totally bought it. And you know what? It was a badass score, plus I'm pretty sure I got one of the few crazy colored vinyls, check it out:

Anyway, when Netflix got it on NWI, I watched it and I really enjoyed the movie. It was full of great atmosphere and apart from the ending, it was a solid movie. When I got word that Elijah Wood would be starring in the remake, I got freaking excited. And now, the teaser trailer has been released at the Cannes Film Festival with fancy French subtitle. Thanks to Badass Digest for posting this. Check out the trailer below: 

Damn straight, I'm looking forward to this. I don't know why, but I'm thinking of Edward Norton in both AMERICAN HISTORY X and DEATH TO SMOOCHY where he plays the two very different types of characters. Elijah Wood usually plays not so creepy dudes, and he's got the full on creepy vibes here. I couldn't find a release date, but we will keep you updated 

MANIAC is directed by Franck Khalfoun. It is stars Elijah Wood, America Olivo, and Nora Arnezeder
