Of the two horror film remakes that I’m ridiculously excited for NOT called EVIL DEAD is the Elijah Wood star vehicle MANIAC. Having read a great deal of buzz around some of the screenings held for the film, the awesome first 6 minutes you can watch online that also introduces us to the equally awesome old school score I cannot wait to watch this one and we will all be able to do so this summer. It was announced that the limited theatrical run and VOD release will take place on June 21, 2013 so mark your calendars.
I know its not popular opinion to look forward to remakes, but I have to admit between EVIL DEAD and MANIAC, maybe I’m trying to hard to be an optimist but I have a great feeling about both. IFC Midnight acquired the film a while back and I’ve been waiting in anticipation for them to announce the release so today has indeed been an exciting day.
What are your thoughts on the MANIAC remake?
