Here’s The Trailer For ‘Mozart In The Jungle’ Season 4

I must admit, I’m not fully aware of Amazon’s Mozart In The Jungle, but know that we’re talking a series of quality here following its multiple awards wins across the three existing series. I received an email this morning pointing me in the direction of the trailer for the upcoming fourth season.

New melodies arise as Rodrigo (Gael García Bernal) and Hailey (Lola Kirke) take their relationship public. Hailey struggles to prove herself as a conductor, while Rodrigo fights to keep his inspiration alive. Thomas (Malcolm McDowell) joins a start-up orchestra in Brooklyn that challenges Gloria (Bernadette Peters).

Season four includes guest stars Debra Monk, Masi Oka, Michael Emerson, and John Cameron Mitchell. Mozart in the Jungle is executive produced by Roman Coppola,

‘Hannibal’: Watch the Mesmerizing Introduction of Francis Dolarhyde Set to AC/DC
Crime drama is going through a bit of a heyday, considering the critical acclamations of the recently released “Murder on the Orient Express” and Netflix original “Mindhunter.” But only “Hannibal” fans understand what we all lost when the beautifully gruesome NBC drama went off the air in 2015.

The show’s creator Bryan Fuller empathizes with the many fans missing both the show and its iconic characters, such as Will Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter himself. This week, Mr. Fuller graced the Fannibal Family with some behind-the-scenes temp footage introducing Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde for the first time, and it’s pretty steamy, folks.

The Silence Of The Lambs: the thinking person's monster movie

Ryan Lambie Nov 3, 2017

As The Silence Of The Lambs re-emerges courtesy of the BFI, we look at how it created one of the screen's most iconic monsters...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for The Silence Of The Lambs

"Is it true what they're saying?" a cop asks FBI agent Clarice Starling around The Silence Of The Lambs' midpoint. "That he's some kind of vampire?"

The cop is referring, of course, to Hannibal Lecter, the former psychiatrist and serial killer played by Anthony Hopkins. Originally created by author Thomas Harris and making his first appearance in the 1981 novel Red Dragon, Lecter - otherwise known as Hannibal the Cannibal - has long since become a fixture on the pop culture landscape. The Silence Of The Lambs isn't specifically about Lecter - rather, it's about Starling (Jodie Foster) and

Why Mindhunter Is One of Netflix’s Greatest Ever Shows

Samuel Brace on Netflix’s Mindhunter

“How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”

This is the central question behind Netflix’s latest original drama Mindhunter, a series based on real life events and characters, a series that delves into the formation of the FBI’s behavioural sciences unit. Mindhunter has an awful lot going for it, and what has been achieved here is nothing short of masterful. Forget best Netflix show of 2017, Mindhunter is up there with the streaming services greatest ever efforts period.

Melding the best elements of two television formats, procedural and serial, Mindhunter (based on true events) follows two FBI agents who hope to understand what motivates humanity’s worst to do exactly what they do. This show is a study in the fragile nature of the human mind, and the results are outstanding.

Here’s The One Death Scene Hannibal Wasn’t Allowed To Do

Of all the unjustly terminated TV shows out there, Hannibal is the one that hurt the most. I was initially pretty skeptical of bringing the titular character to the small screen, but Bryan Fuller’s demented imagination and gorgeous visual stylings quickly made it one of the most fascinatingly unique and bizarre series on the air. It lasted for three glorious seasons, each barmier than the last, before being cruelly cancelled due to low ratings.

Lately, however, it’s been sounding like there’s a chance it could return. A few months back, Fuller even hinted at a potential set-up for a fourth season, which would seemingly be the lovechild of “Inception meets Angel Heart.” As exciting as that is, nothing’s been decided on just yet unfortunately and for now, the song remains the same.

Hannibal is still on ice for the time being, given that Fuller, who was

The show contained so much graphic violence and gore that at times the series felt way more brutal than anything on “Game of Thrones” or premium cable. Murder victims would have their skin sliced off; a totem poll would be erected out of dismembered body parts; necks and faces would be sliced open and stomachs would be stabbed. “Hannibal” is probably the most graphic show to ever air on broadcast TV, which makes it a bit of a shock to hear there was actually one gruesome death showrunner Bryan Fuller was not allowed to do.

Mindhunter review – like Mad Men, with added serial killers

Based on the work of the FBI man who pioneered criminal profiling, David Fincher’s new slow-burn thriller will reward those with the patience to sit back and discover the men behind the monsters

What is it? It’s the Masters of Sex of murdering.

Why you’ll love it: John Douglas is one of the most influential crimefighters ever. An FBI sniper turned hostage negotiator, he is the man responsible for bringing criminal profiling to the bureau. He spent his life interviewing serial killers – before “serial killer” was even a term – to gauge their motives; not only to figure out why they did what they did, but why they did it the way they did. By allowing himself to understand these monsters, by mentally submerging himself as both victim and perpetrator, Douglas forged a groundbreaking way of crimefighting that is still used around the world.

October Horrors 2017 Day 6 – The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Silence of the Lambs, 1991.

Directed by Jonathan Demme.

Starring Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Scott Glenn, and Ted Levine.

Synopsis:

A serial killer dubbed “Buffalo Bill” is kidnapping and murdering women, with the authorities struggling to apprehend him. To help the hunt for the elusive killer, young FBI recruit Clarice Starling seeks the help of cannibalistic murderer and gifted psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter to help build a psychological profile of “Buffalo Bill” in the hope that it will lead to his capture.

In last year’s edition of October Horrors, I spotlighted Michael Mann’s brilliant, but underrated 1986 horror thriller Manhunter, the first film to feature the character of the cannibalistic serial killer and psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, played in that film by Brian Cox.

I still maintain that Manhunter is the best of all the films to feature Hannibal Lecter and advise everyone to watch it if you haven’t already.

Hannibal: what might season four involve?

Gabriel Bergmoser Oct 9, 2017

After a premature ending, Hannibal season 4 is looking more like a possibility now. One fan speculates on what it might be...

That Hannibal survived as long as it did is a minor miracle. A baroque opera of a TV show packed with elaborate plot twists, psychological games, gore elevated to the level of art and pitch-black humour, Hannibal never should have been on network television. Perhaps its greatest tragedy is that NBC picked it up without truly knowing what they were going to get; a crime procedural based on an iconic property must have seemed a no brainer. Of course that was not accounting for the ways in which creator Bryan Fuller managed to take well-trodden material to stunning new heights, subverting the text while paying loving tribute to it and all the while forging a path all its own. Hannibal was unlike anything else on TV

Bryan Fuller and Martha De Laurentiis tease Hannibal Season 4 on Twitter… with a doll

We all remember where we were when the news came out that Hannibal, a.k.a. one of the finest shows to ever grace the small screen, was abruptly cancelled. It was disappointing, but not exactly a shocker: From Season 1 Hannibal was not pulling in the viewers that NBC had hoped for, despite receiving critical acclaim. Eventually NBC had to pull the plug on an incredible show far too early.

Desire for a Season 4 of Hannibal has been strong since the day the show was cancelled. Not only from fans, but from Bryan Fuller, Mads Mikkelsen, and Hugh Dancy. Just last week, Fuller teased on Twitter that talks were beginning to happen regarding Season 4, and now a very interesting tweet came from Hannibal producer Martha De Laurentiis:

Bryan Fuller Gives An Update Concerning The Return Of TV's Hannibal

The television series Hannibal was a unique breed of network show. Airing on NBC, the show featured thirteen episodes a season, more akin to the cable and streaming model than the typical 20 to 24 episodes each season of network television show features. The show was created by Bryan Fuller and adapted the Thomas Harris novels Hannibal and Red Dragon, more or less. It starred Mads Mikkelsen as the horrifying title character, who brought his own recipe of evil to the role rather than simply imitating Anthony Hopkins' performance; a role much darker than even his villainous turns in Casino Royale or Doctor Strange. Hugh Dancy (The Path) played the lead, Will Graham, with incredible likability. Graham being a gifted criminal profiler who visualized himself committing the murders he investigated to understand the killers' behaviors. It was a fantastic show, truly the same quality as a series from FX, AMC, or Netflix,
