Frank Zito (Elijah Wood), who restores mannequins by day and murders women by night to satisfy his desires, gets to know a photographer (Nora Arnezeder); is love in the cards for this maniac? This remake of the 1980 slasher movie of the same title is easier to take more seriously, simply because it is so unsettling. Unlike the original, this one is filmed from the killer’s point of view, putting the audience in a nauseatingly uncomfortable position. Extremely gory, and tough to watch, but a good performance by Wood, and convincing special effects.
