Maniac - Maniac (2012 film) - Netflix

Maniac is a 2012 French-American psychological slasher film directed by Franck Khalfoun, written by Alexandre Aja, Grégory Levasseur, and C.A. Rosenberg, and starring Elijah Wood and Nora Arnezeder. A remake of the 1980 film of the same name, it follows a brutal serial killer. The film was produced by the French film companies La Petite Reine and Studio 37. Unlike the original 1980 film which is set in New York City, writers Aja, Levasseur, and Rosenberg chose to set the film in Los Angeles.

Maniac - Score - Netflix

The film was scored by French composer Robin Coudert, credited simply as “Rob”. Bloody Disgusting judged the music to be “one of the best parts” of the film, and Screen International wrote that the “'80s style synth score is reminiscent of John Carpenter,” a horror movie director who has provided the musical score for many of his own films. The Hollywood Reporter declared, “The nerve-shredding score, by the mono-monikered Rob, salutes the music Italian prog-rockers Goblin provided for [Dario] Argento's early horror-thrillers, the 1980s electronica lending a deeply melancholic city-at-night vibe.” Fangoria called the soundtrack “delightful.” A reviewer for the Geeks of Doom website thought that “composer Rob's synth-heavy score” was “reminiscent of Cliff Martinez's Drive soundtrack and the electronic music composed by Wendy Carlos for Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange.”
