Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Doctor Hannibal Lecter. Brilliant. Cunning. Psychotic. In his mind lies the clue to a ruthless killer. Clarice Starling, FBI. Brilliant. Vulnerable. Alone. She must trust him to stop the killer.

When a senator's daughter turns up missing, the FBI determines that the most likely suspect is Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb (Ted Levine), who is murdering women and doing something terrible with their skin. But to find him, Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) is forced to enlist the aid of another notorious serial killer - the terminally incarcerated ex-psychiatrist known as Doctor Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). Hannibal is the only one who truly understands the killer's mind and motive. He agrees to help Clarice, but in exchange, she has to tell him her deepest secrets.
