This May 24 from Scream Factory comes Manhunter [Collector’s Edition], a killer Blu-ray release of one of the most unnerving serial killer movies ever made. With more than 5 hours of bonus content, including over 2 hours of new interviews, this greatly anticipated release is a must-have for fans.

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.
