Who knew Elijah Wood was a horror movie maniac? The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings star tackles a decidedly different role as a serial killer in his new movie Maniac, in limited release now, and happily shares his favorite horror movies for ETonline in a brand-new Speed Round.
What's his favorite '80s slasher movie? Which Peter Jackson film that doesn't take place in Middle-earth does he love the most? And on Halloween night, does Elijah go gory, or goofy? Watch and enjoy!
A re-boot of the 1980 cult classic, Elijah's Maniac is creatively told entirely from the killer's point of view, putting the audience in the head of a man suffering from split-personality disorder -- an outwardly timid mannequin restorer who is compelled to kill and scalp women. Yikes!
Directed by Franck Khalfoun, Maniac also stars Nora Arnezeder, Alexandre Aja and Megan Duffy.
