While the powerhouse presence of Jodie Foster is duly missed in this sequel, Hopkins is as unsettling as ever. While the story lacks the crooked turns of the original, its gruesome depravity remains intact.

A silly goofy horror movie that killed the creepiest from silence of the lambs.

Hannibal Lecter has left the United States and began a new life posing as an art historian in Italy but when a local detective discovers his true identity he returns to old habits. Being a huge Ridley Scott fan I'm probably biased but I prefer this to the over-rated Silence of the Lambs. It reeks atmosphere and has a grand, almost operatic atmosphere that transcends its pulpy origins. I found Hopkins' more restrained and less glib performance more menacing and I also preferred Julianne Moore's Agent Starling with Ray Liotta's "typical sexist male" as the only weak link in an otherwise very well performed and intelligent Gothic horror show.
