2. SOUNDBITE (English) Elijah Wood/Actor, on what "Maniac" is about +++OVERLAID BY SHOT 1+++:

"Maniac is about a quietly disturbed man who repairs mannequins. He spends his evenings stalking and killing women based on a compulsion that he has. The film is a remake of a movie made in 1980 with the same name about a very deeply disturbed man."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Elijah Wood/Actor, on playing a serial killer:

"I don't know if it was so much about him that intrigued me, rather than the what. I am a fan of the genre and I was intrigued at the idea. I am not a fan of remakes, but what was so intriguing to me was that it was going to be so different. By differentiating itself from the original and shooting the POV (point of view) it could potentially create a unique experience for an audience. It could be a very disturbing experience. For me as an actor playing a character that you largely don't see was really exciting."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Elijah Wood/Actor, on researching serial killers for the role:

"It was a subject matter that interested me. I didn't study anything specifically to play this particular role but I was fascinated by the psychology behind it and what happens to the psychological breakdown between reality for these people. The compulsion to kill and what causes it is just fascinating."
