Silence of the Lambs

I am certain I have already admitted that I am not a fan of scary movies.  But my family, those who know and love me best, were convinced I could handle this one.  I am so happy they felt that way, because I was completely mesmerized by this film.  In the 21st century, we are all bombarded with crime shows, so we barely recognize truly superb mysteries anymore.  This Oscar winner is chilling and gripping from start to finish.  Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are fantastic.  I am fighting the urge to watch the sequel.  (I heard it was a little more gory than I might be able to handle.)
