Silence of the Lambs is one of the best thrillers ever made. FBI trainee Clarice Starling is assigned to the case of a serial killer, Buffalo Bill. She visits Hannibal Lecter, a psychotic cannibal in the prison to seek advice. The film has some moments that absolutely chill you to the bone. Ted Levine delivers an amazing, chilling performance as Buffalo Bill and Jodie Foster shines as Clarice. But the piece de resistance is Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter who gives the scariest, most spine chilling performance of all time. A must watch for all thriller and non-thriller fans alike.
