Hello! How is your month of serial killers going? I sincerely hope you’re reading about serial killers and not actually meeting any! Of course, Silence of the Lambs has other aspects you can read about – the FBI, murders even um, cannibalism. I chose to go with a plan old murder by Louise Penny and I’m very happy with my choice.
If you’re still looking, maybe a movie would be a good alternative. Here are some ideas.
Wind River with Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner. An FBI agent teams with a town’s veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation.
Sicario starring Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin. After an idealistic FBI agent is recruited by a to pursue a drug lord, she begins a perilous mission that pits her against a shadowy consultant with a dangerous agenda.
Dirty Harry with Clint Eastwood. A rooftop sniper named Scorpio has killed twice. Streetwise San Francisco police detective Harry Callahan will nail the perp one way or another-
Now You See Me. An elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against The Four Horsemen, a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists.
Natural Born Killers with Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis. The story of a husband and wife who are serial killers involved in a cross-country killing spree that elevates them from fugitives into media celebrities.
And of course, there’s always Silence of the Lambs. Watch it with a nice Chianti.
