Product Overview

In Red Dragon we learned who he was. In The Silence of the Lambs, we learned how he did it. Now comes the most chilling chapter in the saga of Hannibal Lecter - the one that answers the most elusive question of all - why? Written by Thomas Harris, the best-selling author of the Hannibal book series, this "fascinating and terrifying journey into the making of a monster" (Pete Hammond, Maxim) reveals for the first time the metamorphosis of a brilliant medical student into "Hannibal The Cannibal." Good Morning America's Joel Siegel says, "if you can keep your eyes open, you're going to get scared."

Review Hannibal Rising is a slick and horrifying ride you are forced to experience at the edge of a knife. Washed out scenes ease your senses in counterpoint to high contrast visuals depicting the worst things human beings are capable of. Director Peter Webber spins this tale at a fantastic pace, leaving no dead spots even when filling in the blanks. You'll love watching Hannibal as his movements gain purpose, and every moment is treated as almost ritualistic. You can feel the man emerging, the ascendance of the creature he will become. The story also stays true to the original Silence of the Lambs in that the horrors you witness are less about full-on gore sprayed across your face but the delicate care Hannibal takes to do the most terrible things and their blood-soaked results...Hannibal Rising is the disturbing tale of the man becoming the legend we all hoped it could be...Don't look away for a minute.

Review If you read my review of the novel Hannibal Rising you could tell I was less than impressed with Thomas Harris's Hannibal: The Phantom Menace, it just didn't have the meat that the other books in the series had and it felt very rushed and un-thought out. The film version of is better than the book, but it still has a few of the flaws that it unfortunately carried over as Harris did the screen play for the film as well...Gaspard does get a huge plus in creepiness and intimidation, the guy plays a very good psycho and during the performance he had the cold calmness of Lecter down to a "T"...I guess the bottom line on Hannibal Rising is it is a decent flick, not the greatest in the series, but it does fit in there somewhere. Although I still think Hannibal never needed a back story, he was pretty much perfect as is. But the sad truth the more popular something is the more we want of it and the more it becomes watered down.
