Manhunter Synopsis

A retired FBI profiler, played by William Peterson, is lured back into his job to catch a serial killer who preys on young families. In order to catch the psycho, he must get the help of another madman that he put behind bars ... one Dr. Hannibal Lecter (played originally by Brian Cox). Directed by Michael Mann, fresh out of his Miami Vice days, this is a top-notch thriller that set the stage for Silence of the Lambs.
