MeFi Horror Club #13: Maniac
September 3, 2014 4:49 PM - Subscribe

In this French-American remake of the 1980 cult film of the same name, Elijah Wood stars as Frank, the owner of a mannequin shop. As he helps a young artist with her upcoming exhibition, suppressed desires come to the surface.

The next pick for Horror Club comes from the "Recent" category. It's available free on Netflix Streaming, Amazon Prime, and it's available for digital rental on most platforms (iTunes, Google Play, etc.)

Pick #14 will be a non-English film. Here is a list of Netflix-available non-English horror films to get you started. As ever, there is no hard and fast rule requiring a film to be available on Netflix or any other streaming/digital rentals service, but there is a strong preference for some kind of digital availability.

Oo, interesting, I've been wanting to see this one.

For non-English, I'll just keep suggesting A Tale of Two Sisters, hoping it'll become available somehow, because it's pretty great.

Otherwise, I'd love to get into some of the Italian classics, but I'm not that familiar with them beyond the obvious. I've been curious about some Bava, maybe Black Sunday or Twitch of the Death Nerve?

I saw the remake a few months ago and was pleasantly pleased.

I'm a big fan of Dario Argento so Suspiria or even Opera would be fun. There's also Calvaire, which is like a Belgian early David Cronenberg movie. Strigoi was on Netflix live sreaming but now seems to be gone, which is a shame because I really enjoyed it.

I'm not sure if I get a veto, but I am veto-ing "Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead"

Hey, Calvaire sounds kind of interesting.
