Maniac 4K 2012 Ultra HD 2160p
The streets of Los Angeles seem quiet and safe, but they are not. The serial killer, scalping his victims, goes hunting again. During the day, Frank is the quiet owner of a mannequin restoration workshop, and at night - a ruthless maniac who kills exclusively women. But his measured life of a quiet maniac changes when a young photo artist Anna appears in it, who needs his help in holding an exhibition. The further their relationship develops, the more difficult it becomes for Frank to make a choice - another scalp as a trophy or real love.

Review 4K Movie

Do you remember the amazing time when people on an instinctive level did not hate remakes, and crowds of upstarts only hatched diabolical plans to profit from good movie masterpieces? Old films were re-shot without fear of bias, and the remake saw a really good chance of improving the source material. Now we have to keep skepticism in check in order to simply admit that some personalities, with their remakes, have really changed the idea of ​​the original films, and if you name specific people, then one of them will be Alexander Azha. And even if this time he was not behind the camera, it was his team, including Frank Halfun, who recorded another victory by releasing a new version of "Maniac" by William Lustig.

"Maniac" tells the sad story of a humble recluse Frank (Elijah Wood), seemingly not leaving his dummy shop, but Frank is good at hiding the dark side, committing murders of women in the night streets of Los Angeles. In doing so, he collects trophy scalps of victims to use in his collection of dummies. However, his life unexpectedly takes a positive turn when a young photographer, Anna, (Nora Arnezeder), fascinated by his shop, asks for help in an exhibition, so, living in the City of Angels, a true angel enters the life of a serial killer. Should we expect a happy ending? Yes, this is a rhetorical question. ..

The only real innovation in the remake is the genesis of the story. Frank's return to childhood reveals the formation and formation of the killer's personality. Frank is a monster, no questions asked. But behind all the horrors lies more than a simple desire to kill: an attempt to fill the void in order to experience love and keep life. The practically absent disclosure of Frank's inner world in the original led to the fact that Anna and Frank's love line turned out to be cold and unconvincing, Halfun's film corrects this miscalculation, thereby, if it does not cause sympathy, then at least gives a key to understanding the deep driving force. serial maniac.

"Maniac" 2012 turned out to be an unforgettable and emotional horror film that hits the viewer in the face with electric shocks with realism of special effects (they did not skimp on blood in it), and significantly surpasses the original in its visual and sound design. Frank Halfun made a bold stylistic choice of shooting, showing the film through the eyes of a killer, and turned the viewer into an accomplice of Frank's crimes. We see the hero himself only in reflective surfaces, memories, dreams, so that the camera never leaves the bloodshed, thereby shock and increased sensitivity become almost a personal guarantee from the filmmakers.

Elijah Wood fascinates with his game. After the plump and sweaty maniac portrayed by Joe Spinell in the 1980 original, the new version of Frank looks incredibly convincing and makes the character layered, and Elijah really is the glue that holds the rest of the film.

It is also particularly gratifying to feel the remake dialogue with the original film through music, with distinct echoes from the eighties that add a special vibe to the picture of Halfun with Rob's fantastic musical score.

2012 Maniac is the true exception to the remakes inferiority rule. Alexander Azha and his team have done a fantastically courageous and successful job, which must be a guide for how to shoot remakes.
