The US Release Dates For Franck Khalfoun's 'Maniac' Remake Have Been Announced

A bit of news has just rolled in that's got us feeling all giddy inde, and we hope by pasng it on the feeling of giddiness will consume you as well.

In an announcement today, IFC Midnight has finally revealed the date for the VOD and limited theatrical release of the highly, and I mean highly anticipated remake of Maniac. So grab a red marker, and circle June 21st on your calender, and then starting counting the days until you can witness a new kind of terror.

In the film, "Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 obseson escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulon to stalk and kill. A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present-day LA, MANIAC is a re-boot of the cult filmcondered 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.”

Franck Khalfoun directs the script by Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur.

Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder (Safe House) star.
