Win a signed “MANIAC” poster and code to watch the film free!Contests,Giveaways,Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
MANIAC, the Franck Khalfoun-directed remake of William Lustig’s grimey New York character study of a killer is finally out. It’s both unsettling and harsh in its violence, and stylistic and often elegant in its presentation via POV. As Fango wraps its round of coverage on the Elijah Wood-starring film, we have one last treat: The chance for one lucky reader to win a signed poster from the film and a code to watch it for free on SundanceNow!
In MANIAC, “Frank is the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store, but his life changes when young artist Anna appears asking for his help with her new exhibition.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 obsession escalates, it becomes clear that she has unleashed a long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill.”
If you’d like to win this fantastic one-sheet (above) signed by Elijah Wood, as well as a code to see the film free, send an email to Sam@Fangoria.com, with “MANIAC” in the subject, and tell me the name of another movie shot from the point-of-view of its lead character (not found footage!).
For much more on MANIAC, find our extensive looks at both the original and remake below. And while you wait to see if you’ve won, why not check out a dancey kill compilation tribute to both.
