This is my first ever fanedit and rest assured it will not be my last, because what I got to watch here was simply put great. The offer of 2 different endings pleases both the conservative and the liberal fan. Taking out Anthony Hopkins on such a big scale makes it sound like a major offence, but in this case it totally is not – and I hope CBB will edit Bram Stoker’s Dracula sometimes and do the very same thing to it. Hopkins is sometimes just over-acting, stealing the entire show, making a movie too much focused on him, when he is not even the leading role.
CBB has discovered what was wrong with this movie and boldly addressed it. Of course it is not Silence Of The Lambs and also of course Anthony Hopkins looks too old in this prequel, but still this fanedit has a density, thrill and atmosphere now that I for one would have never believed it could have. Audio and image quality were superb.
This one replaces the original on all levels for me. Thank you.
