A triple bill of Hannibal Lecter films. 'Red Dragon' (2002) is Hannibal Lecter's (Anthony Hopkins) third film outing but is based on the first Thomas Harris novel which introduced the character. FBI agent Will Graham (Edward Norton) has retired with his family to Florida after a near-death experience when he tracked down and captured Lecter. However, when a new serial killer, 'the tooth fairy' who kills whole families, is discovered, Graham finds himself back on the force and asking for Lecter's help. But the tooth fairy has been writing to Lecter and Lecter cannot resist playing each side off each other, to such an extent that Graham's family are to be the next victims. In 'The Silence of the Lambs' (1990) FBI officer Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) is investigating a bizarre and gruesome series of murders, carried out by 'Buffalo Bill'. The investigation steps up a gear when the mayor's daughter is abducted. Starling turns for help to incarcerated psychopath Lecter (Hopkins), who has a penchant for chewing people's faces off. Given special privileges in exchange for information, Lecter escapes, leaving two twisted killers on the loose. Whilst in 'Hannibal' (2001) it is ten years since the events of the previous film and FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore), recently in trouble with her superiors over a bungled shoot-out, suddenly receives a letter from the escaped Hannibal. It does not reveal his whereabouts, but after many years of inactivity, it does announce his interest in returning to the public domain. Clarice has the letter analysed and begins scanning the internet, desperately searching for any clues which will help her reach him before he strikes again. Meanwhile, one of Hannibal's previous victims, the horribly disfigured multi-millionaire Mason Verger, is also on the trail of his tormentor, eager for revenge and the chance to introduce the good doctor to his herd of specially-cultivated carnivorous pigs.

This box-set includes 3 films (those featuring Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter). What you don't get, therefore, is the prequel film Hannibal Rising [Blu-ray], nor the earlier version of 'Red Dragon' (Manhunter [Blu-ray]). And, of course, the more recent TV series - Hannibal - Season 1-3 [Blu-ray] - isn't included.
But the 3 movies that are included are excellent. In chronological order (in terms of the fiction), there's "Red Dragon" - in which Dr. Lecter is discovered to be a delectable psychopath who's killed and eaten several people ... often preparing these human delicacies as gourmet meals, to be shared with others. And so the good doctor is locked-up ... only to be approached by the FBI, who need his help capturing the 'tooth fairy' murderer. Then we move on to "Silence of the Lambs" - in which the FBI once again require Lecter's intelligence to assist them capture 'Buffalo Bill' (yet another serial killer). And it's during this adventure that Lecter escapes ... He pursued by the FBI in the third film, "Hannibal". Yet one of the few victims to survive Lecter - multi-millionaire Mason Verger - gets involved, wanting revenge.
These are horrific films, although not really of the traditional 'horror' genre. They're gritty murder thrillers, featuring gruesome scenes of torture, mutilation and death. They're well made, with high production values, and feature excellent acting.
I thoroughly recommend this box set. At under £10, it's a bargain.
