A 21st century Jack the Ripper set in present day LA, Franck Khalfoun's Maniac 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 spiralling nightmare of a killer and his victims.

Critic Reviews

'[Franck] Khalfoun's Maniac is about as human as one can get. A heart-pounding, heart-stopping cinematic experience' Behind the Lens 'Maniac is gripping from beginning to end and more intellectual than your average slasher flick.' New Zealand Herald 'One for hard-core gore-hounds.' Metro (UK)
