Night 1: The Silence of the Lambs

IT’S OCTOBER 1! The time is now! 31 Nights of Horror has begun! 

Here goes nothing…

31 Nights of Horror, Night 1: The Silence of the Lambs.

Hello, Clarice.

Three (run-on) sentence review:

Some people don’t consider  Jonathan Demme’s masterpiece The Silence of the Lambs a horror flick because it won the “Best Picture” Oscar in 1992; horror movies don’t win those, right? Anthony Hopkin’s masterful portrayal of the AWESOME Dr. Hannibal Lecter was based on the character from Thomas Harris’ 1981 novel, “Red Dragon” (which was the first in the Hannibal trilogy),  but did you know that Buffalo Bill was based on a real serial killer/known human-skin-collector in Wisconsin named Ed Gein?  Dr. Lecter is the obvious star of this franchise (and one of the most complex characters in cinema history), so after you read the trilogy and watch the films, check out NBC’s new series “Hannibal” on Netflix; it’s the darkest show on television – bar none.

Notorious American psychopath, Ed Gein. I drove through Plainfield, WI in 2011 to see where it all went down. Ed Gein’s true-life atrocities inspired Buffalo Bill, Norman Bates, and Leatherface.
A super cute .gif from NBC’s Hannibal. Yep, that’s a human cello. Told you it was dark.

It rubs the lotion on its skin,
