Exclusive: The Audience Is In Control In Clip From Thriller 'Grand Piano' Starring Elijah Wood

On paper, the premise of “Grand Piano” might seem a little silly, following a famed a concert pianist, stricken with stage fright, who attempts to make a comeback after five years only to have an unseen individual threaten his life if plays a single note wrong. But the result may be far more gripping than you might expect.

Elijah Wood stars in director Eugenio Miras thriller, which as our review from Fantastic Fest notes, have more than a few tricks up its sleeve. Praising the film’s “brilliantly simple concept and nimble, elegant style,” correspondent Todd Gilchrist was taken by the film’s De Palma-esque “classical, muscular visual style” and declared the film, “an expertly timed, painstakingly assembled and endlessly engaging game of cat and mouse.” In this exclusive clip, you get a sense of all of those qualities, with Wood’s pianist performing while his assailant whispers into his ear.

“Grand Piano” is now On Demand and opens in theaters on March 7th. Watch below.
