Before THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS there was Mann’s stylish Dino de Laurentiis-sponsored Hannibal Lector serial killer movie. Based on the Thomas Harris novel, this underrated initial film version of the story exists in more various edits than Heinz has ketchup. TV shows such as Millenium and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation owe a great deal to MANHUNTER.
