This stylized thriller, based on Harris’ book Red Dragon, achieved cult status after star William Petersen’s success on the show CSI. It is one of director Michael Mann’s finest films.
Dubbed one of the worst films ever made, it achieved cult status when Mystery Science Theater 3000 featured it in 1993. RiffTrax also did a live show of Manos.
This was the first album to feature singer Steve Hogarth and spawned the classic song, Easter.
