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.

Well, here's a side we haven't really seen from Elijah Wood. Okay, maybe once, when he played the silent Kevin in "Sin City." Anyway, it looks like Frodo is diving in head first into the remake of the 1980 cult slasher pic "Maniac."

It looks like Elijah Wood is ready to get back in touch with his evil side. After surprising many with his turn as the silent Kevin in "Sin City," the actor will followup his time in the shire by killing some people. Cinematically speaking, of course.
