ManhunterMichael Mann's MANHUNTER is 38.
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Here's where it began. 1986 and the cinema world was first introduced to Hannibal Lector. Anthony Hopkins wasn't in the picture yet and actor Brian Cox (THE RING, X2, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE) brought a powerfully insidious characterization of a villain who could breezily exchange personality disguises, childish, insolent, petty, magnanimous, punitive, and jovial, all in a snap, and all without a trace of overlap.

A feel never repeated again in the many Hannibals to come. Anthony Hopkins never lost Hannibal's Tiger-eyed threat. Gaspard Ulliel took his cues from Hopkins in HANNIBAL RISING. Mads Mikkelsen brought his own version of Hannibal on TV, adding a haughty brooding darkness and a too-close personal space invasion with everyone he meets, that betrayed the sinister workings behind the face.

Brian Cox was the only actor who made you understand how such a predator could charm his way toward you until he was close enough to strike.

Is Michael Mann's MANHUNTER the Thomas Harris interpretation that you missed?

Dont put it off any longer. Read Kelly Parks' review to know why MANHUNTER is a Must-See.

33 YEARS OF DAVID CRONENBERG'S
THE FLY

By E.C. McMullen Jr.
It only took 28 years to reboot 1958's THE FLY into one of the best examples of Science Fiction Horror - the other one being John Carpenter's THE THING, released only 4 years earlier.

While a shabby attempt was made in 2011 to reboot Carpenter's remake into a franchise, it's 32 years later and no one has yet committed to rebooting Cronenberg's Magnum Opus (one of his most important, though not his only one).

If you still haven't seen it and need a reason, here it is. /David Cronenberg's THE FLY.

EVENT HORIZON Is 22.
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
On this day in 1997, Paul W.S. Anderson launched his career with a damaged blockbuster than went on to become a cult hit.

Did that make him happy? No! Paul, hampered by Paramount Pictures studio executives, wanted his movie to be so much more! Is it possible that after over 2 decades, Paul can achieve his dream of releasing a Director's Cut of his film?

Event orizon spikey room

Even he doesn't know. Read my review of this flawed gem, /Paul W.S. Anderson's EVENT HORIZON.

Holy crap! Really? Well... okay then! You go Jim!
