Brief Synopsis:
An extended alternate cut,this reintegrates most of the deleted, extended or alternate material. This helps strengthen the relationship between Will Graham and his son.
Intention:
To strengthen the relationship between Will Graham and his son.

An extended alternate cut. About 6-7 minutes longer, this reintegrates most of the deleted, extended or alternate material. This helps strengthen the relationship between Will Graham and his son (which in turn makes the climax all the more powerful), shows us more of Will Graham’s analytic mind, Dolarhyde’s madness (including the excised “Red Dragon Voiceover” by Frank Langella), Dr. Chilton’s tactlessness, and snips out Lloyd Bowman’s reading of the decoded message to heighten the tension of what it might say as Will waits to hear it.

I personally liked this film. While it’s not nearly as great as Silence, I give props to Ratner for at least trying to capture that film’s mood. So once again pull up a chair to the dining table and enjoy this last soiree with Anthony Hopkins in the role that made him a household name.
Cuts and Additions:
Added:

- Graham watching his son sleep before he leaves
- More of Chilton and Graham talking about the procedures taken with Lecter
- More of Graham investigating the Leeds’ bedroom
- Graham studying the cat’s grave at the Jacobi house
- Graham has a brief vision while in the tree at the Jacobi house
- Graham talking to his son about Lecter
- Lounds recording the message into the tape recorder
- The Dragon’s voice (by Frank Langella!) is heard taunting Dolarhyde while he runs around his house looking for Reba. His dialogue now becomes a two-way conversation.
- Lecter watching the Leeds’ family video as "The Show" part of his "Dinner and a Show" deal.
- Josh confronted by Dolarhyde at the end (this was shown in the trailer)

Removed:
- When Bowman breaks Lecter’s code, what the note says is removed to heighten the tension for the audience as Graham waits to hear what it says.” DVD-ROM content contains hi-res artwork, the complete theatrical score with unreleased cues by Danny Elfman, and the complete 3-CD set of scoring sessions with alternate cues. All four folders of score material are in hi-bitrate MP3 format. Deeper character development, stronger tension
