Box Set Includes:
Red Dragon: The first and most terrifying chapter in the Hannibal Lecter Trilogy. Anthony Hopkins returns in his finest and most chilling performance yet, as the malevolent Dr. Hannibal Lecter. FBI agent Will Graham (Edward Norton, Fight Club) is called out of early retirement to catch a serial killer known as "The Tooth Fairy." To stop the brutal murders from continuing, Graham must first let Lecter inside his head. Prepare to be disturbed as Graham confronts the brilliantly sinister Lecter in this dark and heart-pounding thriller. With an outstanding cast including Oscar Nominees Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson and Harvey Keitel plus Mary Louise Parker and Philip Seymour Hoffman. To understand the origin of evil, you must first go back to the beginning.
The Silence Of The Lambs: This powerful, five-time-Academy Award winner will chill you to the bone. When FBI Agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) is assigned a case involving a monstrous serial killer, she seeks counsel from an imprisoned cannibalistic psychiatrist - Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), whose fascination with the young woman is as great as his hunger for murder. As their relationship develops, Starling must confront her own demons - and an evil so powerful that she may not have the courage or strength to stop it!
Hannibal: Ten years have passed since FBI agent Clarice Starling faced the ingenious Dr. Hannibal Lecter...ten years of watching, wondering and waiting. But now the wait is over. The sophisticated killer re-emerges in Florence, Italy, ready to entice Clarice into their old game of cat-and-mouse. Yet she isn't the only one interested in capturing him. Another mind with a dubious motive - ravenous vengeance - also wishes to stake his claim to the enigma that is Hannibal. But of these three brilliant minds, whose cunning will prevail?

The Hannibal Lecter Trilogy is great. Whilst Red Dragon doesn't quite capture the emotional intensity of Manhunter before it, the production value and spot on acting make it an acceptable successor. Silence of the Lambs, however, is worth the price of the box set all by itself. A procedural thriller, psychological horror and drama all in one, this film benefits massively form the work put into it. Jodie Foster trained with the FBI beforehand, others went through the behavioural science training (causing some serious nightmares) and all was backed up with consultation with the real deal. It's a thought-provoking and tense masterpiece that loses nothing with age. Added to this there are hours and hours of extras, explaining how it came about and even a very honest look at the backlash experienced when the film came out from the gay and transgender communities. Hannibal is certainly not a classic but it is an enjoyable, slightly camp experience.
Silence of the Lambs (the reason people would buy this Hannibal Lecter Trilogy) has one of the best blu ray transfers I have ever seen, could've been filmed yesterday yet it is over 20 years old! The other two films are good quality BDs, yet are just added bonuses in the shadow of Silence of the lambs.
Many actors are destined for one delicious role in there life. Nay, remembered and pigeon-holed whether they like it or no. Take Alec Guinness for instance. A prolific film star but (unjustly) remembered for his Obi-Wan which rankled him for the remainder of his days. Mr Hopkins has made this his own, forgetting the first outing of Lecter in 'Manhunter', and that eery scene when Agent Starling comes face to face with the monster will stay long in the mind. Gory, well filmed and a generous support casts adds to the enjoyment (?). Ugh. A delight.
