Scream Factory dishes out details on their Manhunter release

Manhunter Scream Factory Michael Mann Brian Cox

Scream Factory has made a habit of tossing respect to films that have slunk into the shadows of popular culture. And there's perhaps no film more worthy of that respect than MANHUNTER, Michael Mann's thriller based on the Thomas Harris novel Red Dragon, and the first film to feature the notorious Hannibal the Cannibal. MANHUNTER was swallowed by the massive shadow of that other Hannibal Lecter movie, but Scream Factory is here to revive its reputation with a massive collector's edition, out May 23rd.

Here's the deets on the special features:

In MANHUNTER, which our very own The Arrow called "a captivating show to witness":

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.

Tom Noonan (Heat, RoboCop 2), Joan Allen (The Bourne Legacy), Dennis Farina (Get Shorty), Kim Greist (Brazil) and Stephen Lang (Avatar) co-star in this gripping thriller from director Michael Mann (Heat, Miami Vice) and adapted from the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. Manhunter is one of the most unnerving serial killer movies ever made.
