Grimm Up North; Maniac / 247F

Maniac: Frank Zito is an isolated, mentally disturbed man who runs a mannequin store. Following the death of his overbearing mother, his twisted fantasies about women, and in particular women’s hair, begin increasingly to control his life. He descends further and further into madness and violent murder, collecting scalps as trophies. Then he meets aspiring artist Anna. As their relationship develops, Frank struggles to determine what he really wants; another trophy or real love… An unflinchingly fierce and full-blooded re-imagining of William Lustig’s infamously seedy, oft-banned 1980 cult shocker, from the boundary-pushing creative team behind HAUT TENSION, P2, MIRRORS and the HILLS HAVE EYES reboot, featuring a startling, career-redefining performance from sometime Frodo Baggins Elijah Wood, this nightmarish study of misogynous psychosis is shot almost entirely POV, forcing the viewer to inhabit the fetid world of Frank Zito’s imagination, and thus to become uncomfortably complicit in his bloody crimes. Challenging, controversial, and confrontational, this is truly a film that takes no prisoners.

247°F: Scout Taylor-Compton and Tyler Mane of Halloween I and II, Travis Van Winkle (Transformers, Friday The 13th), Michael Copon (One Tree Hill) and Christina Ulloa (Charmed) star in this blistering thriller about four friends who travel to an isolated lakeside cabin for a weekend of partying, including hot times in the sauna. But something has gone wrong. The sauna door is now blocked from the outside, trapping the teens inside with the heat on full-blast and no way to turn it off. At 190°F, their skin will sear. At 200°F, their lungs will burn. At 212°F, their blood will boil. Tonight, the temperature is headed for 247°F
