    "Tsk tsk tsk I watched the other Hannibal movie with Julianne Moore and can I just say that there will never be anyone who can match up to Jodie Foster's work. "

    "Horror movies try hard to incite fear and terror in viewers, usually bey throwing buckets of blood around and having scantily clad young women make horribly unsafe choices as they half-heartedly try to escape. This movie is terrifying in a special way, it messes with your mind, and the characters seem real. The fear is that the highly cultured and polite character will finally show his evil side, and there is nowhere you can hide from someone who knows so much about you just from looking at you. The acting is amazing, and this movie is the one that I think of when I think of a truly terrifying experience."

    "I heard Silence of the Lambs was one of the best scariest movies ever made. I watched it and thought it was a good movie but didn't think it was nearly as scary and great as some people said. Maybe I was expecting too much. Still, I can understand some people thinking it's one of the best movies of all time."
    Anthony Myers
    Written on June 26, 2017
    "The Silence of the Lambs has won a number of Academy Awards and also one Golden Globe for Best Actress. Using awards as a lithmus test for best movies of all time could put this film in that category. It also launched one of the most popular horror series in the world."
    Kimberly Willis
    Written on January 1, 2017
    "While The Silence of the Lambs is critically acclaimed, it is entirely subjective as to whether or not it is one of the best movies of all time. As time passes, the film might feel dated, particularly with regards to its portrayal of gender identity and sexuality."
    Helen Lee

    "I love this movie because it is from the Midwest and it is a suspenseful movie that involves a murder. I love movies that involve murders and it is a thriller type movie also. The movie is great I ordered two dvds just to have."

    "What a wonderful horrific suspenseful psychological thriller. I was on the edge of my seat the entire film trying to figure out what each character was doing and how they were involved. Great acting and good performances. "

    "My all time favorite movie! I remember the first time this movie came out and I was scared to death of Hannibal Lecter. Foster and Hopkins are the best for this movie."
  • Wendy Lee
    Written on April 11, 2018
    "This is one of the best movies I've ever had the privilege of watching. If anyone doesn't know this already I was told that Jodie Foster was not willing to do any more of the sequels because the Silence of the Lamb disturb her so badly when she was making it. After watching the movie I could definitely understand her reasons why she would feel this way. "

    "This is more of thriller than horror movie but I think that it could work either way. In any case, it's a great movie either way so it's just a matter of pulling at hair but the difference doesn't really matter when the end result is great"

    "Silence of the Lambs - can you say creepy? I didn't like this movie at first since I don't like movies like this but my boyfriend is a fan so I watched the whole set with him. In the end, I became a fan!"
  • Walter Howell

    "This book is one of the more interesting things, as it has several themes that people normally wouldn't get involved with, and has spurred more than just a book and a movie; there are cult followings for it, and there are also many references to various parts of the book/movie on the internet."
  • Rosa María Leal
    Written on June 21, 2018
    "I love this film! I only got scared 'cause the psycho in this movie was just so scary and weird and freakin' retarded. I never want to ever encounter people like him. It just gives me the creeps. Also, I watched this because Anthony Hopkins is such a brilliant actor and the perfect HANNIBAL LECTER. <3"

    "I was very young when this was shown so I didn't know that this movie was really a big deal. But upon watching it, it really got me though i'm not a fan of thrillers. Surprised to learn that this actually won Best Picture in the Oscars."

    "Will never get tired of watching this film. Every time I watch this it leaves my heart pounding. Plus the actors here are damn good with their acting performance. "
  • Sharon Moreno

    "Personally I think of Silence of the Lambs as being more of a thriller/suspense movie than a detective movie, but either way it's a fantastic film. It'll keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through, and the characters are written and acted phenomenally. "
    Aaryan Chatterjee

    "I saw this when it first came out and it is a great movie. It's suspenseful to the very end and I like the way it becomes a battle of wits between Hannibal and Clarice to find the killer. It's very gritty and realistic in it's portrayal of tracking a serial killer."
  • Nathan Knight

    "This 1991 classic will chill viewers to the bone even today! The greatest horror film since Hannibal, without a doubt."
  • Madison Bradley
    Written on March 25, 2019
    "Nice combination of crime, drama, and thriller. I love the character of the young Jodie Foster in here. Her hint of naivety and sense of vulnerability made her acting so brilliant. I think for a drama and thriller movie, a sense of being vulnerable is a must so the audience can totally feel the emotions meant to be felt."
    Dennis Bryant
    Written on April 18, 2017
    "I'm not big into psychological thrillers, but even if you're not it's hard to ignore this one. There's very good reason this was a career-making role for Anthony Hopkins, but Jodie Foster shouldn't be undersold either. A movie that will stick with you for a long time."

    "I feel like all the excessive sequels and follow ups have soured me a bit on The Silence of the Lambs. I mean to be honest it's still an amazing movie it's just the mystery of it has been dismantled and it's a shame what people do for money."
    Aaron Howard

    "This is the creepiest movie of all time. Do you want to be uncomfortable? Do you want to have terrible dreams? Watch this movie! If you like any kind of horror at all this is for you."
