Friday Nineties – The Silence of the Lambs

Acadia Einstein


Horror movies don’t usually win Oscars.  Silence of the Lambs did, though and it totes deserved it.  I am in love with the NBC series Hannibal as much as I am with the original movie, and as much as I loathe all the stupid sequels to the original movie.  Oh Ray Liotta, are you a movie star or not?  I can never tell!

I am including a great video (I recommend the series itself as it is really cool) about the first scene that includes both Agent Starling and Dr. Lecter.  Then after that I included my favorite thing in the movie.  I know there are a lot of memorable lines and scenes but the one down at the bottom became something my old roommate and I would ask whenever anyone asked about anyone for any reason.  We were idiots.

And as one final bonus – ever wonder why Chris Griffin from Family Guy sounds so weird?  Well find out below, and thank Silence of the Lambs!

What are your favorite parts, or are you too chicken to watch it?  Also, what about the NBC show?  Doesn’t it rule!  Sucks they cancelled it.  🙁

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    One of my favorite compliments to give is “you have really nice skin”. Creepy AF

    One of my all time favorite movies. Saw it in the theater soon after its release, and it creeped me right the fuck out. Still does.
