The Silence of The Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs Quote: “What a naughty boy he is! Do you know why he’s called ‘Buffalo Bill’? Please tell me, the newspapers won’t say.” – Dr. Hannibal Lecter

When we think of the best ’90s horror movies, we think of “It,” “Event Horizon,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” and “Scream.” Nobody ever brings up “The Silence of the Lambs.” Maybe they’re too scared.

This cinematic gamechanger introduced us to the terror Anthony Hopkins could unleash and reminded us just how sharp Jodie Foster’s jawline really is.

In this brothers’ birthday gift to listener Jon R., The Shat Crew settles life-or-death questions, including: Why make a skin dress when a “skin vagina” will do? Who approved these action sequences? How did Buffalo Bill kills so many women when he’s so bad at killing? Why is society so interested in how people were killed, rather than why? And what was with the anagrams?

Hear the tale of Big D brutalizing a fellow soldier; learn the history behind Precious the Poodly-Poo, and celebrate this masterpiece with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

Plot Summary: “The Silence of the Lambs” Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy. Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) wants Clarice to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath, serving life behind bars for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Crawford believes that Lecter may have insight into a case and that Starling, as an attractive young woman, maybe just the bait to draw him out.
