092: SFFCH – Manhunter

092 Manhunter SF

It’s Jamie’s turn again, and this time he has brought in ‘Manhunter’ from 1986 for the group’s attention on Spoiler Filled Film Conversation Hooray. It’s the ‘Silence of the Lambs’ precursor that no-one quite remembers, but is it any good? The crew of Rich, Jamie and Abi seem to think so, as they touch on Michael Mann, ‘Heat’, the key in underplaying the Hannibal aspect of the film, the joy of directors leaving you to work out a few things yourself, the extremely silly stocking to the head, the innocence of not fetishising the killer, and continuity problems in the cereal aisle. Yes, there are cereal problems in a serial killer film? How did they resist the gag?! (Ep 92, Rec 2015)
