Horror film remakes have been non-stop for a decade.  Of course the big films were redone, including Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.  Yet even smaller horror films, such as Black Christmas, I Spit on Your Grave, and Willard have seen updates for the 21st century.  In 2012 another cult splatter film was added to that roster--Maniac.  Closely based on the 1980 original, but with some daring style choices, this new Maniac did not find wide release but is slowly growing its own cult following.  Can Hobbit Elijah Wood compete with Joe Spinell's personification of serial killer Frank?  Listen to find out!
