While a lot of people tend to reference The Silence Of The Lambs as their introduction to all things Hannibal Lecter, I grew up adoring the hell out of Michael Mann’s 1986 thriller Manhunter. Brian Cox did one hell of a job as the notorious cannibal, with both William Petersen (To Live And Die In La) and Tom Noonan (Heat, Late Phases) aiding in making the film an absolute classic, one of the few perfect thrillers.
Thanks to the wonderful gang at Scream Factory, it looks like we’re getting an Epic Collector’s Edition Bluray release of the film, one that is Very loaded with brand new special features and two version of the film. Will you fright fanatics be picking this one up? God knows I’ll be.

There is no hashtag called #FriedkinIsAGod, but really, there should be. The director of “The French Connection,” “The Exorcist,” “Sorcerer,” “Cruising,” “To Live and Die in L.A.,” “Bug,” and “Killer Joe,” to name just a few, William Friedkin is one of the greats to emerge from the 1970s brat pack director’s scene that included Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Bogdanovich, and more. Now 80-years-old, the mythic filmmaker recently sat down with podcaster Marc Maron for an epic two-and-a-half-hour chat on his "Wtf" podcast. Maron describes the director as a “consummate storyteller” and he’s not wrong. The far and wide-reaching conversation spans Friedkin’s career with many, many highlights, not to mention wise words to live by.

Varo Venturi's Day 6 is another genre outing that has made its rounds under different titles: Alien Exorcism (U.S.), Alien Encounter (U.K.), 5 Giorni Sulla Terra (Italy), Eirian-Baasasu-Ekusoshituto (Japan), and 6 Days on Earth. Now out on DVD from One 7 Movies, Day 6 introduces a story that is intriguing but tests the audiences' patience by inundating them with so much information that it becomes a bit much to follow. Although spoken (and apparently also dubbed) in English, there are no subtitles, and their absence is heavily felt. In a nutshell, the film is a fair attempt of mixing aliens with evil spirits. Dr. Davide Piso (Massimo Poggio) is a scientist who has dedicated his life's work to the study of alien abductions. You would think that he would have taken notes from Whitley Strieber's 1987 book on the subject, Communion, as he speaks with and studies people who claim to have been abducted. »

6th Street bridge movie tribute: Film fan constructs edit of movies featuring the Los Angeles landmark.
A film fan has created a 6th Street bridge movie tribute. A what? Well, the 6th Street bridge in Los Angeles is not necessarily a landmark that one would instantly recognise, but you’d be surprised just how many films the 80-year-old viaduct has featured in. There are literally hundreds. Well, the bridge is now closed (as of January 29th), and will be pulled down later this year and rebuild ready for a 2019 opening.
Vashi Nedomansky, an avid, prolific filmmaker/ editor over on Vimeo has constructed the 6th Street bridge movie tribute which features 11 of the many films that the bridge has featured in over the years since its construction in 1932. Amongst them are The Mask, Drive, Terminator 2, Point Blank (1967), The Dark Knight Rises and To Live And Die In L.A.
