As we get down to the number four entry on the list, we find one of the few horror films that the critics enjoyed as much as the fans. It's not often that true horrorphiles and starchy movie critics look at a film and both nod their heads and say, "Yeah, that's the stuff."
But with The Silence of the Lambs, that was exactly the case.
"I do wish we could chat longer, but…I'm having an old friend for dinner. Bye."
That was the perfect ending line for the most critically-acclaimed horror film of all time. The film's list of accolades includes five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor (which Anthony Hopkins won, despite being on the screen for only about 16 minutes of the two-hour film), Jodie Foster took Best Actress, Jonathan Demme was Best Director and the film also won Best Adapted Screenplay. »
