"Never over look the obvious. The answer, could be very easily found with fine detective work. And help from others. And also, don't be rude. Rudeness can get you killed."

Scarier Than Fiction (50 movies items)

"Ed Gein and Ted Bundy Author Thomas Harris based Buffalo Bill on a number of serial killers, including Ed Gein (skinning his victims) and Ted Bundy (using a cast to lure in innocent women). Harris also based the relationship between Starling and Lecter on that between Bundy and Robert Keppel, a criminal profiler and professor at the University of Washington."

Nick's Top 100 Films (100 movies items)

""The brutality in Silence leaves you shaken because it's meant to seem painful instead of playful, terrifying instead of titillating. Foster's Clarice Starling and Smith's Catherine Martin represent something unique in slasher movies: women who won't play victim." - Peter Travers"
