One of the coolest serial killer films you are ever likely to see! Firstly the acting is top notch and Foster and Hopkins are in top form, it's irresistible! Foster plays a young FBI agent who is out to find a missing woman who was abducted by a serial killer. In order to learn more about the man who abducted her she has to make "friends" with another crazed murderer and cannibal Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins of course). Lecter isn't that easy to get information out of although he's brilliant and he's extremely tricky. He also ends up having some strange fixation on Foster. It's full of surprises, and it's extremely satisfying and filled with great lines like "It Puts The Lotion On It's Skin", seriously this is a must watch for anyone!
