The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Maniac (2013)

Starring: Elijah Wood, Nora Arnezeder
Director: Franck Khalfoun


Premise:
A young man who restores antique mannequins is also a serial killer. His life changes when he meets a photographer.

My Take:
A solid remake that brings something a tad different to the table. The first person point of view forces the viewer to almost become the main character and experience the troubles and horrors he is going through. It was a bold move that in my opinion pays off. The fact the only time you see the main character is in reflection makes it all the more uncomfortable. And it is brilliant played by Elijah Wood.

Rating: So Good
