Binge Movie Aftertaste – Hannibal Lecter Retrospective w/ Matthew Goudreau and Michael Guarnieri: The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

On December 22, 2017 by Garrett Collins

After Manhunter was a flop in theaters, producer Dino De Laurentiis sold the rights to the Hannibal Lecter character for cheap. At the same time, Jodie Foster, fresh off her Oscar winning performance in The Accused, read the book Silence of the Lambs and decided she wanted to produce a version of it. After some of Hollywood’s biggest names passed on the film due to its subject matter, Foster and director Jonathan Demme assembled a team of bit players who eventually made one of the most frightening and beloved (horror?) films of all time.

Join me, Matthew, and newcomer to the series Michael, as we eat some liver and fava beans, and take in 1991’s multi Oscar winner The Silence of the Lambs for dessert. How do we feel about it all these years later, and how does Michael feel about being put in this world for the very first time? Only one way to find out.
