A new feature titled “Recovering The Mindset,” edited by Matthew Morettini, looks at the confrontation between Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter, as portrayed in Michael Mann’s 1986 Manhunter between William Peterson and Brian Cox, Brett Ratner’s 2002 Red Dragon between Edward Norton and Anthony Hopkins, and in Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal between Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen.
Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banshees has composed a piece of original music to be featured on the season 3 finale episode of Hannibal.
With regard to the show’s imposing score, Bryan Fuller claimed “The music needed to be psychological, it couldn’t’ be melodic. It needed an insidious capacity to get under your skin.” Additionally, Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banshees has composed a piece for the series, most likely to be heard in the finale.
Siouxie and fellow Banshee Steven Severin reunited with Marc Almond at a season 3 premiere event for Hannibal in the UK back in June. it would appear that the seeds of Siouxsie‘s involvement with the show may have been born at this premiere event.
