This week, several titles get new, splendid-looking 4K releases. You’ll also have a chance to pick up a criminally underrated horror sequel from earlier this year, as well as a new creepy kid movie. In addition to that, we’re trying out something new with this column: rather than just break down the special features, you’ll find reasons why any of these films are worth owning physically (rather than relying on those newfangled digital copies). These are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week.

Like the rest of us Fannibals, Bryan Fuller is eager to bring Hannibal back from its watery grave.
The former Hannibal showrunner has confirmed that “conversations” have begun around reviving Hannibal for a potential fourth season after NBC canceled the series after its third season in 2015. While that’s exciting news for any cannibal serial killer lover, Fuller did caution fans that it could still be some time before the show returns.

Since the classic thriller Silence of the Lambs isn’t exactly the kind of movie that’s friendly to creating merchandise to commemorate it, there have been very few attempts to bring Hannibal Lecter to the shelves of fans. While there have been attempts by NECA to create a few different detailed figures, most Hannibal Lecter collectibles have been unimpressive. But one company is about to give fans the cannibal collectible they deserve.
Blitzway, the same company behind the impressive sixth scale Ghostbusters figures and forthcoming Ecto-1 that fits the whole team, is coming out with a series of Hannibal Lecter statues that feature an incredible likeness of Sir Anthony Hopkins. Check them out below. Read More »
It’s easy to be sad that Hannibal is no more, but it’s hard to be angry. The late, great horror series had a passionate fan base, but also a tiny fan base – very few people actually watched this mesmerizing and completely bonkers series and the three seasons NBC gave it were generous. And yet, there has been buzz about a potential fourth season ever since the show’s cancelation…buzz that has been continuously stoked by creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller, who has made it perfectly clear that he’d love to return.
In fact, it’s hard to grieve the end of this show (which had a pitch-perfect finale) when Fuller keeps on spitballing Hannibal season 4 ideas in public.

There has never been another television show quite like Hannibal, which redefined what a horror television show could look and feel like across three grand, glorious, and gory seasons. But even the show’s most ardent fans must have realized that the writing was on the wall when the third season went full arthouse Grand Guignol – you don’t venture down a rabbit hole that weird and twisted without scaring off the normals. The series died as it lived: brilliantly, in front of a tiny audience.
But series creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller still hasn’t given up on Hannibal quite yet and is still talking about a potential miniseries follow-up that would adapt The Silence of the Lambs.

Hugh Dancy was on a Television Critics Association panel for his upcoming Hulu series The Path this morning. After the panel he stayed to speak with journalists further, and we asked him about the hypothetical fourth season of Hannibal. Bryan Fuller had teased potential Silence of the Lambs storylines, but Dancy clarified some of the possibilities. Read More »
The Hannibal finale is incredibly satisfying. NBC’s surreal, dark show never scored huge in the ratings, but it’s a miracle a story this ambitious lasted three seasons, and thankfully it ended on a high note, with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) finally getting some much needed alone time.
After the jump, the cast and crew explain the Hannibal finale.

I miss Hannibal. Sometimes the NBC show would make me sick to my stomach, in a great way, or make me crave an extravagant feast full of meat — preferably non-human meat. The show was some of the finest food porn to ever be made for television. Hannibal wasn’t always dining on leftover eyeballs or freshly baked brain, so it’s okay to admit some of his cooking looked pretty damn good.
The show’s creator, Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies), unsurprisingly, is a vegetarian. Fuller and Hannibal‘s co-star, Gillian Anderson (The Fall), have returned to the world of Hannibal for a PETA commercial, launched just in time for Thanksgiving.
Watch the 30-second advertisement after the jump.

There’s plenty of heroes out there, but what people really go crazy for is a great villain. Over nearly a century feature filmmaking has delivered some pretty mesmerizing, fascinating and memorable villains on the big screen. But which ones are truly the best?
Well, the folks at CineFix have attempted to answer this seemingly impossible question by counting down the Top 10 Movie Villains of All Time. And don’t worry, Christopher Nolan fans, because Heath Ledger‘s take on The Joker from The Dark Knight is on the list. However, you might not be so happy with some of the choices for best movie villains. Read More »
Hannibal is over. Here’s a hankie to dry your tears. Oh, sorry, that one has blood on it, try this one instead. But what if… Hannibal wasn’t really over? What if there could be a movie? That’s the sort of thing that cold-hearted series creator Bryan Fuller is talking about right now, and even though that’s the sort of thing he’s been talking about for a while, fans of the departed show might be happy to know that producers are still thinking about ways to continue the story.
Fuller says in an interview that “[producer] Martha De Laurentiis is looking into financing for a feature film,” and that while the odds are low — less than 50/50 — they’re still trying to work things out. There are even more comments out there about what a fourth season might have been, too, which will give people ideas to chew on while dreaming of that movie or new mini-series or whatever.
Note that spoilers for the end of Hannibal season three follow. Read More »
