A serial killer called ‘Buffalo Bill’, so called as he skins his victims, is leaving the FBI baffled. At wits end they send a trainee to visit one of the country’s most prolific serial killers, Hannibal Lecter (Hannibal the Cannibal). What ensues is a psychological cat and mouse game between Clarice Starling, and Hannibal Lecter. As the clock ticks, and a high profile victim is kidnapped, Clarice must question how much of herself she must show to Hannibal to solve this case. This film, and the book it is based on, are one of my all time favourite psychological thrillers. The growing relationship between Hannibal and Clarice – unsettling but necessary leaves audiences intrigued. The tension in every scene is done so well, I grip my seat, even though I’ve seen the film 3 or 4 times. Definitely a must see 10/10
