11 months after Kid Cudi first announced that Shia LaBeouf-directed visuals inspired by his Man On The Moon II collaboration with Cage, “Maniac,” were on the way, and nearly five months since the trailer for it hit the ‘net, the short film has finally arrived. It’s no coincidence that the 10-minute clip was released today, though. In true Halloween horror film fashion, “Maniac” follows Cudi and Cage around the city of Detroit as they bring terror to its citizens in full French-speaking, cold-blooded-killing mode. You can watch it above, but you may want to refrain from doing so at work, or as the warning states at the beginning, in front of children. Also, head over to Complex to read an exclusive bonus interview with Cudi about his character in the film and how the project came together. As always, feel free to leave your thoughts below.
