#25 – Silence Of The Lambs

Reason Why – Silence Of The Lambs? Hannibal the Cannibal. Buffalo Bill. Anthony Hopkins. Clarice. Jodie Foster. A hell of a story and movie. One of the best mainstream horror movies to get respect from the movie industry at the time it came out. Put the bottle in the basket. Based in large parts on various real-life serial killers from Ted Bundy to a serial killer in Philadelphia (only an hour away from me!) who actually had women in his basement much like the film. Hopkins and Foster gave excellent award-winning performances in a top-notch film that will creep you out. This is one of the horror movies I insist on upgrading anytime it comes to a new format (currently have it on Blu-ray). Even though it might not benefit as much as movies that show more detail (less “dark” movies) I’m really pleased with this on Blu-ray.

Does It Hold Up? – Yes, especially Anthony Hopkins.
