    It's interesting to see Woods take a role that he has never really played before but imo it does not work out for him. He just doesn't put on that good of a performance to dominate a role in which he has a great majority of the dialogue. Proving that while he certainly has the talent, He can not carry a film all by himself. That being said, I thought it was a pretty stupid movie. The death scenes are entertaining, I'll give them that, but it's the only good thing about the film. The plot is incredibly shallow, the dialogue is very weak, and overall it's simply not that interesting. Expand

    The movie shouldn’t be dismissed outright, either. It’s a creepy experiment that stays with you.

    The chief problem with such gimmick films -- including Maniac -- is that storytelling so often takes a back seat to the gimmick du jour, resulting movie that can be interesting from a technical perspective but not nearly as compelling as one would want.

    This remake, like Frank’s horrible hobby, remains an exercise in empty repetition.
