The soundtrack for Franck Khalfoun’s MANIAC remake has already achieved cult status, as it’s clearly one of best albums of the year, full of heavy synth and a pretty awesome single at the end of the soundtrack. Thanks to the folks at IFC Films, we were sent a couple of remixes that were recently done by “Junesex” and “GET A ROOM!”, along with a interesting behind the scenes “making of” for the soundtrack as well. Check it all out after the jump and be sure to check out the film (now available via VOD and in limited theaters) as well!
Just when the streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back and on the hunt. Frank (Elijah Wood) is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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. A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present day L.A., Franck Khalfoun’s MANIAC, produced by Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES, HAUTE TENSION), and composed by Rob of the band “Phoenix”, is a re-boot of the William Lustig cult film considered by many to be the most suspenseful slasher movie ever made – an intimate, visually daring, psychologically complex and profoundly horrific trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a killer and his victims.
