IFC certainly had a lot of choices when it came to their MANIAC blu-ray cover; we've seen about a hundred posters for the remake over the past couple of months, but they studio has apparently decided to go with the below art: photoshopped junk with little to no thought put behind it. Did they even try to make that look like Elijah Wood's hand? What's with the weird production still of Nora Arnezeder in the corner there? Bah.
Oh, and MANIAC will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 15th. Good timing, that.
Frank (Elijah Wood, The Lord of the Rings) leads a deceptively peaceful life: to the outside world, he's a withdrawn and somewhat eccentric owner of a mannequin store. But his quiet fa‡ade masks an inner rage that forces him to brutally kill the women who manage to get too close to him. When a young artist named Anna (Nora Arnezeder, Safe House) appears one day at Frank's shop and asks for his help with her new exhibition, Frank develops an obsession with her that threatens to completely destroy his already fragile psyche. Soon the streets become unsafe for any woman after dark as this newly-awakened maniac begins to stalk and kill. A 21st century Jack the Ripper story set in present day Los Angeles, MANIAC is an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.
