Believe me - "Silence of the Lambs" is a totally laughable serial killer movie from 1991 that certainly takes itself way, way too seriously for its own good.

I mean, can you believe this one's even got an "intellectual" cannibal who (get this!) tries to take bites out of people who are still very much alive!.... (Ha! Spare me!)

Yep. This one's an over-rated waste of time from start to finish.

Part of classic Dr. Lector movies set.

This is a great movie and to compare this with other movies really clarify s the difference between a 5 star rating and a 3 or 4. Most movies which are pretty average should get a 3, a step up gets a 4 and ones like this are the real 5's. Anthony Hopkins was superb in the role of Dr. Hannable Lecture.

As adaptations go, this movie is pretty spot-on, and absolutely deserving of its many Academy Awards.

The writer Thomas Harris is in my humble opinion an amazing writer(much like Truman Capote) and his adaptations to the movie screen are truly Freakishly scary and makes one want to keep reading watching and edge of your seat horror! Stephen King and he must compare notes as the horror aspect-spine tingling cover your eyes and don't sleep for days afterwards! Best kind of way to be scared -in a movie theater or read a great novel or listening to one! :)

Story, pacing and acting are all top notch. Avoid the squeals and prequels.

This classic drama/crime film tells the story of an incredible student at the FBI training academy. Clarice, the student, is wanted to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who is a psychotic murderous cannibal that worked as a psychiatrist for many years (as ironic as that is). Since Clarice is a very attractive woman, the FBI believes that she will be able to uncover very important information about a case from Dr. Lecter. This slightly frightening yet interesting film is right up my alley since I enjoy stories about serial killers and murderers. With that said, I would rate this movie 4.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

FBI agent Clarice Starling must seek help from a serial killer to catch another homicidal maniac who skins his prey. A lot like the movie 'Se7en', it truly is a thrill ride and creates the infamous character Hannibal Lector. The superb acting, it was great for a movie made in the early 90s.

Silence of the Lambs truly deserves all the praise it gets and more. It has an excellent attention to detail that you don't see too often. Also it has memorable and interesting characters, including one of the most thought provoking horror characters ever, Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Anthony Hopkins does a top notch performance of the manipulative psychiatrist who's mere existence blurs the lines between intellect and savagery.

Hannibal Lecter: A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.
