More than a few were skeptical when the Alexandre Aja-directed remake of slasher-classic "Maniac" was announced, with Elijah Wood stepping into the gnarled, grotesquely-unattractive shoes of Joe Spinell. But they seem to have found a way around this, as Wood revealed to MTV at Sundance that the film was, "...entirely in P.O.V. You only ever see me in reflections and occasionally there are out-of-body experiences where you see more of me." While it's a dubious proposition to capture a film with a time and location so integral to its own identity, a fresh approach like this seems wise. Consider this: it could have easily become a found-footage movie.
