The Silence Of The Lambs


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling classic, now with a note by author Thomas Harris revealing his inspiration for Hannibal Lecter. A serial murderer known only by a grotesquely apt nickname—Buffalo Bill—is stalking particular women. He has a purpose, but no one can fathom it, for the bodies are discovered in different states. Clarice Starling, a young trainee at the F.B.I. Academy, is surprised to be summoned by Jack Crawford, Chief of the Bureau's Behavioral Science section. Her assignment: to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist and grisly killer now kept under close watch in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Lecter's insight into the minds of murderers could help track and capture Buffalo Bill. Smart and attractive, Starling is shaken to find herself in a strange, intense relationship with the acutely perceptive Lecter. His cryptic clues—about Buffalo Bill and about her—launch Clarice on a search that every reader will find startling, harrowing, and totally compelling. An ingenious, masterfully written novel, The Silence of the Lambs is a classic of suspense and storytelling.

The Silence of the Lambs: Critical Essays on a Cannibal, Clarice, and a Nice Chianti brings together scholarship from across the disciplines to examine not only themes commonly associated with the film—such as gender, cannibalism, and psychopathy—but also unexpected themes such as the film’s use of humor, language, and forensic science, as well as issues of Orientalism and classism. Each of the essays offers a new perspective on a film that both audiences and scholars relate to as a cultural touchstone. In addition, chapters on critical historiography, the film’s role in popular culture, genre evolution, as well as its critical reception, offer contemporary readers a “big picture” perspective on the film.

Silence Of The Lambs


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Gary Heidnik was a serial killer whose crimes would become the inspiration for the "Buffalo Bill" character in the movie "Silence of the Lambs." He built and designed a torture chamber in the basement of his home in North Philadelphia where he lured both prostitutes and mentally challenged adults, holding them captive for sex. Heidnik constructed this house of horrors over the course of several months. He dug up the basement, bought chains to hold down the women and bars for the windows. Experts are split on the verdict of whether Gary was pure evil or simply insane. What is certain, was that his goal was to have his own harem. A place where he could have his own "farm" of women who would give birth to his children. He realized that no woman would undergo this voluntarily so he decided to begin abducting them, one by one, in the winter of 1986...

The Silence Of The Lambs


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs, based on Thomas Harris’s bestseller, was a game-changer in the fields of both horror and crime cinema. FBI trainee Clarice Starling was a new kind of heroine, vulnerable, intuitive, and in a deeply unhealthy relationship with her monstrous helper/opponent, the serial killer Hannibal Lecter. Jonathan Demme’s film skillfully appropriated the tropes of police procedural, gothic melodrama and contemporary horror and produced something entirely new. The resulting film was both critically acclaimed and massively popular, and went on to have an enormous influence on 1990s genre cinema. Crime and horror authority Barry Forshaw closely examines the factors that contributed to the film’s impact, including the revelatory performances of Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in the lead roles.
