  • Surprising

    What always surprises me? Is the amounting of people who call Silence of The Lambs a horror film: it’s not that. It’s a film whose central characters do horrific things, but who are capable of good. Either way? The Silence of The Lambs is still, some 26 years after its original 1991 release, THE most powerfully watching film I’ve seen in a long time AND one that defined a genre of crime film and TV, ever after it.

    I never have the chance to read the novel but luckly I watch the film when I was small. This is a brilliant film with a confused main charachter who is finally growing up in the film, and a fascinating bad guys, we can even say he become a anti-hero in the film. I don't see this film as a horror film but more a thriller, becuase Hannibal is too charming to be a terror. A five star for my favourite film and favourite character.

  • Best film ever made

    By Lynswoo
    In my opinion this is the best film ever made and I have seen a lot of films. The first time I saw this film I was amazed that one film could have all of the vital ingredients. The acting from Jodie foster, Anthony Hopkins and Ted Levine is powerful, believable and Hopkins and Foster were deserved Oscar winners. The plot was thick and intense and the vulnerability of clarice made the character multi dimensional and thrilling to watch. Anthony Hopkins is quite simply amazing as the chilling Dr Lecter and Ted Levine- scary and menacing and oh so realistic. No film comes close to this for me an if you haven't seen it then watch it now. I am sure you won't be disappointed.

    I did like the idea of this, it was quite good but I don't understand why people are calling this the best thriller ever, it is overrated. Apart from that I would reccomend

    My most favourite film ever. I love Ted Levine as the killer and he was brilliant as Rusty Nail in Joyride. That man is scary. The sequels weren't the same without Jodie. I was really annoyed that she wasn't in them. They are still quite good though. Wish there were more.
