Scream Factory set to send the Tooth Fairy your way with May 24th Collector’s Edition release of MANHUNTER!!; Full Specs Announced!

SF1While a lot of people tend to reference THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS as their introduction to all things Hannibal Lecter, I grew up adoring the hell out of Michael Mann’s 1986 thriller MANHUNTER. Brian Cox did one hell of a job as the notorious cannibal, with both William Petersen (TO LIVE AND DIE IN LA) and Tom Noonan (HEAT, LATE PHASES) aiding in making the film an absolute classic, one of the few perfect thrillers.

Thanks to the wonderful gang at Scream Factory, it looks like we’re getting an EPIC Collector’s Edition Bluray release of the film, one that is VERY loaded with brand new special features and two version of the film. Will you fright fanatics be picking this one up? God knows I’ll be.

The first film to feature the iconic character Hannibal Lecktor, Manhunter follows former FBI profiler Will Graham (William Petersen, To Live and Die in L.A., CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as he reluctantly returns to his old job to track a horrific serial killer known as the “Tooth Fairy.” But in order to get into the mind of this maniac, Graham must face another: Lecktor (Brian Cox, X-Men 2, Red), the imprisoned psychiatrist whose own insanity almost cost Graham his life… and whose insights into the “Tooth Fairy” could prove as dangerous as the killer himself.
