At the end of Season 2 of NBC’s HANNIBAL last year, title character and stylist cannibal/serial killer/psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) escaped into the rainy night, leaving our heroes – FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), FBI Behavioral Unit director Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and FBI agent Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) – all critically wounded.

Movie Review: MY SOUL TO TAKE

Wes Craven’s most famous filmmaking creation is still arguably the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise, but the supernatural aspects of his latest offering as writer/director, MY SOUL TO TAKE, are closer to those in THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW and SHOCKER. What’s surprising is that SOUL is sincere about depicting the high school travails of its main characters – this goes well beyond the interest SCREAM (directed by Craven, written by Kevin Williamson) showed in such things. Instead, it’s as though the horror elements of SOUL were married to a John Hughes movie, or even Craven’s school-orchestra drama MUSIC OF THE HEART. Plenty of horror films (including a number of Craven’s) are set in and around high school, but few deal this extensively with high school. The shift in emphasis is a bit surprising, but on the whole, it works.
