Just when the downtown Los Angeles streets seemed safe, a serial killer with a fetish for scalps is back on the hunt in Franck Khalfoun’s nerve-shredding Maniac (2012). Former Hobbit Elijah Wood plays Frank, the withdrawn owner of a mannequin store whose life changes when young artist Anna (Nora Arnezeder) appears asking for his help with a new photo exhibition. To celebrate the 1 July DVD and Blu-ray release of Maniac, we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away, courtesy of the fine folk at Metrodome Distribution. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

To say that Frank is a troubled young man would be an understatement – as the ever-growing number of young women he has murdered since the death of his mother (America Olivo) demonstrates only too well. Frank runs a mannequin store and likes to apply the scalps of his victims to the models in his spare time. However, when Anna wanders into the store and talks about making use of its resources for an exhibition she is planning, she presents Frank with a troubling quandary. Will the killer be able to overcome his homicidal urges?

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Maniac on DVD, just answer the following simple question:

In which year was William Lustig’s original Maniac released?

a) 1960
