SHOT MONEY SHOT MA­NIAC

THIS MONTH’S BIG­GEST TRAILER MO­MENT

Empire (Australasia) - - PREVIEW -

Not much was known about Ma­niac, a mys­te­ri­ous new Net­flix show that ap­peared to be set in a hos­pi­tal. Was it just an­other bog-stan­dard ER rip-off? As this wild first full trailer re­vealed: no, em­phat­i­cally not. Open­ing on a creepy phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal trial, the trailer trav­els into the drug-ad­dled minds of Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, jour­ney­ing through a dizzy­ing ar­ray of hal­lu­cino­genic psy­cho-lands, travers­ing 1950s glam­our, 1980s do­mes­tic bliss, an­i­ma­tion — and, as this star­tling shot demon­strates, even a bit of el­ven-eared high fan­tasy. Sun­shine ‘Eter­nal Of The Spot­ful Mind’? ‘Net­flix and pill’? What­ever the hell it is, strap us into the strait­jacket. We’re ready.
