Horror movies don’t usually win Oscars. Silence of the Lambs did, though and it totes deserved it. I am in love with the NBC series Hannibal as much as I am with the original movie, and as much as I loathe all the stupid sequels to the original movie. Oh Ray Liotta, are you a movie star or not? I can never tell!
I am including a great video (I recommend the series itself as it is really cool) about the first scene that includes both Agent Starling and Dr. Lecter. Then after that I included my favorite thing in the movie. I know there are a lot of memorable lines and scenes but the one down at the bottom became something my old roommate and I would ask whenever anyone asked about anyone for any reason. We were idiots.
And as one final bonus – ever wonder why Chris Griffin from Family Guy sounds so weird? Well find out below, and thank Silence of the Lambs!
What are your favorite parts, or are you too chicken to watch it? Also, what about the NBC show? Doesn’t it rule! Sucks they cancelled it. 🙁
One of my favorite compliments to give is “you have really nice skin”. Creepy AF
One of my all time favorite movies. Saw it in the theater soon after its release, and it creeped me right the fuck out. Still does.
I love this movie. Watched it when I was young (probably too young) and it’s stuck with me ever since. My favorite line was always “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti”. Hopkins delivers it with such matter of fact tone, that chilling line. Incredible film, and well deserving of the Oscars it won.
Also, huge honorable mention to Scott Glenn in this film. Watching him as Alan Pangborn in Castle Rock recently made me go back and watch Silence of the Lambs again and his performance is absolutely stellar.
