“Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.“
MANIAC stars Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder and is directed by Franck Khalfoun, from a script written by Alexandre Aja’ and Grégory Levasseur.
