Well the Silence Of The Lambs franchise is held in higher regard than most of the tripe that passes for horror these days. Hence my commentary.
Silence of the Lambs was unique in it's own ways and path breaking. But that aside for a moment, it's pointless comparison. Of course it's a classic and there's no quality horror films made these days, but that's a different topic isn't it? I agree with that, but this is far from 'tripe" and regardless of whether you like it or not, it's DEFINITELY not bastardization of the franchise. And I didn't even love any Hannibal films except SOTL, which I am a big fan of obviously.
This is definitely one of my favorite new primetime series. Not only are the actors doing a top notch job, but the visuals of the show are insane as well. The show had me on edge all the way to last episode of the season. The only thing that sucks is that the show won't be back till 2014 and that is a pretty long wait. Still, I know it will be well worth it.
Yes! It relies on none of the cheap shot gimmicks and yet is brilliantly cold and chilling. It did take it's sweet time to warm up to the characters, but since then it's all been edge of the seat stuff. And I also love the bits of dark humor that's in there.
“This is very educational,” :D Brilliant.
