Elijah Wood is scheduled to appear at IFC Center’s Friday and Saturday 9:20 PM screenings of Maniac, the remake of the William Lustig’s grindhouse cult classic, in which he stars. Described as a smart and stylish re-boot of Lustig’s slasher cult classic, the new Maniac is an intimate and terrifying trip into the downward spiraling nightmare of a murderer and his victims. Frank (Elijah Wood) is a withdrawn mannequin store owner whose life changes when a young woman appears asking for his help. As their friendship develops and Frank’s obsession escalates, it becomes clear that his long-repressed compulsion to stalk and kill has been unleashed.
IFC Center will also be handing out a limited number of free posters at the Friday & Saturday 9:20 shows, while supplies last. The theater is located at 323 Sixth Avenue in New York City.
