Scream Factory is Brigning Manhunter to Blu-ray!

"Former FBI profiler Will Graham (William Petersen, To Live and Die in L.A., CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) 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: Hannibal 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."

Manhunter has always been one of our favorite movies (we love Michael Mann), and we've been dying for it to be available in a Blu-ray version that does it justice... and now thanks to Scream Factory, it's finally happening!

Five years before Anthony Hopkins blew audiences away with his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in the brilliant Silence of the Lambs, there was Manhunter; the tale of FBI agent Will Graham's battle against The Tooth Fairy. And yes, Hannibal was there too.

William Peterson is perfect as Will Graham, and Brian Cox does an admirable job as Hannibal (even though he's not on-screen very much, and Anthony Hopkins did it better), but the best thing about Manhunter is that it's every bit as slick and stylish as it is intense and disturbing.

This is going to be a DAY ONE purchase for us on May 24th, and should be for you too.

  1. I think this might be the same transfer as the MGM release.


  2. That MGM transfer was shit, so I can't see SF just proting it over. I also can't find anything from them stating they're giving it a 2K or 4K transfer, so... If itturns out to be the sametransfer, I'll skip it.

    Guess we'll have to wait for the firstreviews to hit in a few weeks.
