Hannibal Lecter...

Hannibal Lecter is one of the most interesting "horror" characters of our generation. You have a serial killer who is intelligent, knowledgeable, scarred from youth, and basically a cannibal. This scene from the movie Hannibal has two of my favorite actors, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Liotta. All the movies that deal with Lecter are pretty good films, with Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal being the best. These movies are terrifying because the "bad guy" is not an alien, a supernatural entity, or super-human... he's just a man with an insatiable appetite for brains. There are many horror chareacters over the last 100 years, but none are more frightening than Hannibal Lecter... enjoy the video!
