I woke up at 4:39 this morning, thinking of Hannibal, the man, the series, and the serial killer, awash in blood and viscera. Through three seasons of Hannibal, Mads Mikkelsen has redefined the character created by novelist Thomas Harris. The serial killer made an impressive debut in Red Dragon, first published in 1981. He was a cold-blooded homicidal maniac who gave FBI profiler Will Graham nightmares, in part because Hannibal tried to kill him, savagely. As downplayed by Brian Cox in Michael Mann's version, Manhunter (1986), he's chiefly memorable for the reaction he provokes in Graham (William L. Petersen), prompting him to race out of the prison where he's just interviewed him. Later, in Harris' The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal becomes a much more...

“Hannibal” has likely had its last supper, concluding a somewhat ungainly third season that delved further into its literary underpinnings. Assuming there’s no stay of execution, the NBC series goes down as one of the most meticulously produced – and hunger inducing – in the recent annals of network TV, one that finally appeared to run out of options along with hospitable real estate.
Despite an extremely loyal cadre of fans, showrunner Bryan Fuller’s program endured various indignities during the course of its run, among them being moved to Saturday nights to mitigate ratings damage to the network. Viewing had always been low (with international financing keeping production viable), but tune-in shriveled further after its relocation. And while there was talk of a revival elsewhere, that always looked more hopeful than likely, demonstrating that Netflix and Hulu can’t always be counted upon to reheat network leftovers.

Justin Timberlake will team with director Jonathan Demme for a concert film that will capture the singer's January 2nd performance from Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena, the final stop on the singer's six-legged, 134-date 20/20 Experience World Tour. According to Entertainment Weekly, Demme will begin editing the still-untitled, independently financed concert film this fall.
"It's very emotional, very exciting. It's a space age music film,” Demme said of the performance. The director also compared Timberlake to a "funky" Fred Astaire and added, "There's tremendous dancing in this piece. He's got »
Director Jonathan Demme, who this year released "Ricki and the Flash" starring Meryl Streep as a rocker mom who lets down her kids, will receive the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award at the 72nd Venice Film Festival (September 2 through 12). The awards ceremony to confer the Persol Tribute to Visionary Talent Award 2015 to Jonathan Demme, who is the President of the Orizzonti Jury, will be held on Thursday September 3rd at 3:00pm. Demme's long and storied career goes all the way back to the 1970s, through "Crazed Mama," "Melvin and Howard" and more, and into 1980s comedy "Something Wild," 1991 Best Picture winner "The Silence of the Lambs," "Philadelphia," remakes "The Truth About Charlie" and "The Manchurian Candidate" and his more idiosyncratic late-career efforts, including "Rachel Getting Married," "A Master Builder" and now "Ricki and the Flash." His films have »

The Oscar-winning director, who is serving as President of the Orizzonti Jury at the festival, will receive the honor at a ceremony on the second afternoon of the festival (Sept. 3) in the Sale Darsena (Lido di Venezia).
“From the cultured reinterpretation of genres in his early films, to the development of a personal film style deeply rooted in the individual, to his systematic incursion into documentary filmmaking distinguished by his innovative approach, Demme has brought to life a vivid gallery of characters against the background of an exuberantly pop American landscape that harks back to the »

After three gripping and gory seasons, Bryan Fuller’s singular series has come to an end. In the lead up to the final ever episode, we take a look at the elements that made it such a beautiful, disgusting and messed-up show
This article contains images from the show that some may find distressing.
Never has eating people looked so good as on NBC’s Hannibal, but the show had all the reasons to be a failure. When books are made into films, and films made into TV shows, people are usually sceptical. There is precedent to say that adaptations are awful ideas, let alone adaptations of successful adaptations: the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs was faithful to the 1988 Thomas Harris novel and the Oscar count alone suggests the film did pretty well, but its successors – Hannibal, Red Dragon, Hannibal Rising – weren’t received quite as warmly.

3.12 The Number Of The Beast Is 666
This week’s episode, The Number of the Beast Is 666, is a tragedy. But I mean that generically, not emotionally.
Let’s face it. Dr. Frederick Chilton is a classical tragic figure. That is, he meets all the characteristics of Aristotle’s description of that character. The purported father of tragedy described the tragic hero as being defined by five things: a tragic flaw (or error in judgement), a reversal of fortune caused by that flaw, recognition that his own actions led to his fall, excessive pride or hubris, and a fate out of proportion with the error committed.
Dr. Chilton’s flaw, of course, is that, despite the fact that he is essentially the greatest of second-rate minds, Hannibal has »
From thrillers to sci-fi to horror, here's our pick of 20 films from 1986 that surely deserve a bit more love...
A fascinating year for film, 1986. It was a time when a glossy, expensive movie about handsome men in planes could dominate the box-office, sure (that would be Top Gun). But it was also a year when Oliver Stone went off with just $6m and came back with Platoon, one of the biggest hits of the year both financially and in terms of accolades. It was also a period when the British movie industry was briefly back on its feet, resulting in a new golden age of great films - one or two of them are even on this list.
As ever, there were certain films that, despite their entertainment value or genuine brilliance in terms of movie making, somehow managed to slip through the net. So to redress the balance a little, »

Hannibal, old friend, you kinda lost me this week.
Look, I know Raul Esparza’s Dr. Frederick Chilton is vain, haughty, inept, smarmy, malicious and all sorts of other unpleasant adjectives. And I’ll admit I didn’t feel the slightest hint of sympathy when the dude had some of his organs painfully removed by Abel Gideon in Season 1 — or when Chilton took a bullet to the face (fired by the deeply addled Miriam Lass) in Season 2.
But there’s a difference between letting out a hearty chuckle at the end of »
After this week's big news about the iconic Goonies house being covered up to keep fans away, is there anyone who likes the idea of buying a movie location? Even if so, the latest on the market is a particularly tough sell. It's Buffalo Bill's home from The Silence of the Lambs that's become available, and the media calling it a "torture house" might not help its value. Or maybe it will. A realtor at the agency listing the property told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, "I could see somebody doing something fun with this." Apparently just living in the Southwestern Pennsylvania home isn't what she has in mind. "People love to be scared," she added, reportedly suggesting a horror-themed bed and breakfast. It's...

If you've got $300,000 burning a hole in your pocket and fancy owning one of cinema's creepiest houses, then good news! Buffalo Bill's house from The Silence of the Lambs is up for sale.
The three-storey Victorian family home near Perryopolis, Pennsylvania is now on the market after its owners, Scott and Barbara Lloyd, decided to move elsewhere following a 39-year residence.
Memorably, the house was the setting for the 1991 thriller's climax, where serial killer Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine) kept his dungeon and FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) found herself in a very tricky situation involving a pair of night-vision goggles.
Those worrying whether there is a basement suitable for skin-removal hobbyists need not fear: that part of the film was shot on a soundstage, and not, say, somewhere near the old washing machine and all those abandoned VHS tapes you can't bear to part with.

With the summer blockbuster season coming to an end, it’s time to get hyped for an amazing selection of fall movies. There are dozens of films on the horizon that everyone’s looking forward to; The Hateful Eight, Spectre, The Hunger Games, and a little something called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to name just a few.
But what about the non blockbusters?
These lesser known twelve upcoming films could actually be incredible, but right now they’re being somewhat neglected with everyone so focused on Quentin Tarantino and Han Solo.
Here are 2015’s underlooked fall films you should be more excited for.
Release date: September 18 (Us) / October 9 (UK)
In 2013, the Hugh Jackman/Jake Gyllenhaal film Prisoners was one of the most underappreciated movies of the year, a well constructed thriller with truly memorable characters. Director Denis Villeneuve followed that up with the strange but intriguing Enemy, »

It puts the house on the market or else it gets the hose again. The 3-story Victorian home from "The Silence of the Lambs" – yes, the one used to hold Buffalo Bill’s skinsuit victims -- has hit the market, for a very reasonable price. The 5-bedroom home, an hour south of Pittsburgh, was built in 1910 and its owners have barely changed a thing since the movie that won Best Picture was shot there in 1990. Asking price ... $300k. »

Fictional victim-skinning serial killer Jame “Buffalo Bill” Gumb’s murder house has gone up for sale.
“The Silence of the Lambs” villain’s home — a four-bedroom, one bathroom Victorian house set on a 1.76-acre lot in Fayette County, Pennsylvania — has hit the market for the cool price of $300,000.
The Realtor.com listing somehow manages to both embrace and reject the movie connection simultaneously, reading, “A landmark home…featured in the ‘Silence of the Lamb’ movie” and also calling the property a “statement of taste and prosperity” and a “near-perfect expression of comfort.”
“They were looking for a home in which you entered the front door and had a straight line through,” Barbara Lloyd said. “They wanted it to look like a spider web, »

The home that was used for Buffalo Bill's (Ted Levine) terrifying abode in the Oscar-winning thriller Silence of the Lambs, is going on the market. Scott and Barbara Lloyd's three-story Victorian home near Perryopolis, Pennsylvania was put up for sale on Sunday, with an asking price of $300,000. The homeowners, who are both 63, have decided to sell the home and downsize, building a small ranch-style home just a few miles away.
The four-bedroom house was built in 1910, and the Lloyd's purchased it in 1976, getting married in the foyer in February 1977. While having dinner one night in 1989, a movie producer knocked on their door, asking if they could take photographs inside their home. The Silence of the Lambs filmmakers shot for only three days in the home, but it took the production crew more than six weeks to get the house ready for filming. Here's what Barbara Lloyd had to say »
The fictional killer’s house from the 1991 hit is available in Pittsburgh for $300,000. Dungeon not included

The primary villain in 1991 thriller The Silence of the Lambs is Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb (Ted Levine), a deranged serial killer who skins his female victims in hopes of creating a "woman suit." Now the fictional murderer's house – a four-bedroom, one-bathroom Victorian set on a 1.76-acre lot in Fayette County, Pennsylvania – has hit the market with an asking price of $300,000, the Wall Street Journal reports.
In the acclaimed film, Buffalo Bill is eventually brought down by the FBI's Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), with an assist from imprisoned killer Hannibal Lecter »
