I’m sure William Lustig thinks highly of this new poster for Maniac (2012) since he and the original film’s screenwriter, Alexandre Aja, helped produce this remake of his 1980 film of the same name. This poster is by far the coolest one yet because we get another look at the killers blade in it. Just like a classic slasher poster from the ’80s. Yes, that limited Mondo poster was also slick, but I’m in favor of this one.
By the way, if you didn’t already know, Elijah Wood stars in the film as Frank Zito, a ruthless serial killer who scalps young women, and attaches their hairs to mannequins. Pretty sweet, huh?
According to ShockTillYouDrop, distributor IFC Midnight is calling this poster the official one. You can take a quick look at it above, and make sure to mark your calender for June 21st, which is when the film gets its limited theater and VOD release.
