Dammit, now that's how you do a fucking remake! Pretty much echoing what everyone else has already said here, but fuck it...

Great cinematography (The POV style was used perfectly) some nice brutal kills, awesome 80's style synth score, and Woods (Who I originally thought was the worst possible choice for the role) ended up winning me over. Great job, Frodo.

IMO, this is easily the best of the modern remakes. It shits all over Evil Dead, Dawn Of The Dead and The Hills Have Eyes. WHY DIDN'T THIS GET A WIDE RELEASE???!!!

9/10

Probably because the MPAA would tear it to pieces.

Haha wow, I didn't even know there was a remake of this. Love the original, although it's been a while. So this remake is good? Go figure I haven't heard of it if it's decent lol.

I already liked Elijah Wood but this solidifies him as one of my favorites. He can do quite the variety of characters. Wonder what else he is going to do. Also, Wilfred is hilarious.

I liked this movie but not quite as much as some of you. I thought it was brutal and awesomely intimate (in a creepy way). Some of the POV stuff seemed off to me, but the soundtrack was killer. Awesome remake. 9/10

Nah, I think it could get an R.

If Evil Dead can, so can this.

I haven't seen Evil Dead yet, but I can't imagine that it's as mean spirited as Maniac.

I'd guess "supernatural" violence is easier to get into cinemas than "realistic" violence.

It's not. Evil Dead's violence and gore is over the top and not as real or brutal as the violence in Maniac.

Right now he's ranting hardcore on Facebook that Iron Man 3 is the worst superhero movie of all time because they did something different with his favorite villain.

Pretty hilarious stuff. Same with his "the maniac should be played by a fat sweaty guy! Wood sucks!!"
