Manhunter (1986)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: The shot which follows on immediately after Dollarhyde is shot shows a large stain of blood under him in the shape of a dragon's wings. He could not have lost that much blood that quickly, and it would be impossible for it to form so accurate a shape that fast.

Correction: If one of the bullets penetrated the aorta, Dallarhyde would bleed out within seconds. Literally. Impossible to form that shape? Why? Is there some sort of restriction on this kind of thing? Unlikely, maybe, impossible, no.

Corrected entry: Francis Dolarhyde's name is spelled with one l, but on the driver's license displayed in the film, it is spelled with two.

Correction: This is a discrepancy between the movie and the "Red Dragon" novel, not a mistake within the movie.

Hannibal Lecktor: Then how did you catch me?
Will Graham: You had disadvantages.
Hannibal Lecktor: What disadvantages?
Will Graham: You're insane.

In the final confrontation between Dollarhyde and Graham, Tom Noonan had to lie in a pool of stage blood for several hours as the crew worked on other shots. After all this time, the stage blood dried into a thick, cement-like adhesive that all but fused Noonan to the carpet.
