Binge Movie Aftertaste – Hannibal Lecter Retrospective w/Matthew Goudreau and Michael Guarnieri: Hannibal Rising (2007)

On January 12, 2018 by Garrett Collins

Here it is. The end of our look at all the Hannibal Lecter films. And boy do we end on a great note.

Oh, I’m not talking about the movie being discussed. No matter how our reviews end up going, there is no argument that 2007’s slick high brow prequel Hannibal Rising, involving the upbringing of our favorite cannibal, is not a favorite movie among critics. In fact, it has a PHENOMENALLY high Rotten Tomatoes score of 15%. But is it at all enjoyable for anyone on this podcast? I will just say, maybe.

After Red Dragon was released to huge business, producer Dino De Laurentiis wanted to take the character in a new direction. That being a movie that looks at how Hannibal Lecter became one of the most notorious FBI wanted serial killers to have ever lived.

Or does it? Join me, Mike, and Matt as we dissect the film and make our own conclusions as to how this works as a cap off to Hannibal in our cinematic world. We also talk about how the TV show ended, and if producer Bryan Fuller will ever finish his take on this series of stories.

The Binge Aftertaste’s first Retrospective of the year also ended up being among its most fun. I want to thank Mike and Matt, who have both agreed to come back on for future series.

Until then, here are all four of our previous podcasts:
