Undeterred by the horror that was P2 , director Franck Khalfoun and writer Alexandre Aja now remake William Lustig’s 1980 shocker.
Transposed from a squalid NY to a bizarrely deserted LA, it sees Elijah Wood’s nutjob scalp his female kills to bring fleshy life to a gallery of mannequins.
The scuzz-chic visuals, sleaze-synth score and deep-cutting gore are effective, and shooting from the killer’s POV proves a valid USP.
But Wood, despite giving his all, cannot match Joe Spinell’s unhinged turn in the original: nightmares in a damaged brain indeed.
