31 Days of Halloween: The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

Serial killers are a fascinating bunch, but one is more iconic than most of the others: Hannibal Lecter. That’s why The Silence of the Lambs is my Day 27 pick for 31 Days of Halloween.

IMDB’s Description: “A young FBI cadet must receive the help of an incarcerated and manipulative cannibal killer to help catch another serial killer, a madman who skins his victims.”

Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a cannibalistic psychologist, is no typical adversary. He’s practically an antihero and one of the most fascinating characters in the horror genre. This film is part horror and part mystery. It’s a true thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. It’s one of the longest movies to make my list, but it’s well worth the time to see Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jodi Foster in these iconic roles.
