Movie, Music, and Muse Monday: Hannibal Lecter

Hello there! For this Monday's Muse I have decided to pick the fictional Serial Killer Hannibal Lecter after watching all the movies involved with them.
Check out the most famous non real Serial Killer.

Wiki tells us
"Hannibal Lecter M.D. is a fictional character in a series of horror novels by Thomas Harris and in the films adapted from them.
Lecter was introduced in the 1981 thriller novel Red Dragon as a brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer. The novel and its sequel, The Silence of the Lambs (1988), feature Lecter as one of two primary antagonists. In the third novel, Hannibal (1999), Lecter becomes the main character. His role as protagonistanti-hero occurs in the fourth novel, Hannibal Rising (2006), which explores his childhood and development into a serial killer. and
The first film adapted from the Harris novels was Manhunter, based on Red Dragon, features Brian Cox as Lecter, spelled "Lecktor". In 2002, a second adaptation of Red Dragon was made under the original title, featuring Anthony Hopkins, who had played Lecter in the motion pictures The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal."

Heres some facts!

*Anthony Hopkins who potrays and makes Hannibal Lecter famous in the film adaptions has won an Academy Award for his move role in Silence of the Lambs.

*Hannibal Lector is first introduced to us in the novel Red Dragon 1981 and the film adaption of Red Dragons main character Francis Dolarhyde is played by the same actor who is Voldemort.

* Hannibal Lecter is said by the creator Thomas Harris to be based of an actual Serial killer and Cannibal William Coyne.

*Considering Lecter is a fictional serial killer the audience cant be helped but be captured by Hopkins performance and in most cases rooting for the killer.

*The human psyche cant help but be captivated by the dark side of what humans are capible of and our want to understand that. But this saids a lot about society and how serial killers are seen like movie stars.

I'll leave you with this little something!

Aha! LOL!
