TOP 500 REVIEWERon 21 April 2017
Let's give the good doctor a break! Typically, all he's after is a nice meal ... Okay, he has a penchant for human flesh. But at least he tends to favour only those people who are bad mannered. For some reason or other, the authorities - especially the FBI - prefer to deny Hannibal Lecter his liberty and freedom, and consequentially incarcerate him in a tiny, dungeon-like cell. And then, rather ironically, the same authorities who decided to imprison Dr. Lecter go and ask for his help and assistance in solving murder cases involving serial killers. Well, at least these tête-à-têtes with the FBI keep Dr. Lecter from suffering sheer boredom!

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.

Great set and good value at the price. It's a shame the set doesn't include Hannibal Rising, but it has the other 3 they're the best ones. I've never read the books so can't comment on the similarities. Stunning performances and great plot. The music in Hannibal is particularly good.

This trilogy package is region free, and each disc contains many special features. Silence of lambs Blu-ray was sealed but other two were not. The american version of Silence of lambs has two additional special features that the UK version does not have. I cannot speak for the comparisons on the other two.Price better than us price and I have been buying many Blu-rays from UK recently either because US is out of print...no us print. or special features not available in US because of license issues. Price is great and you won't be disappointing

It's a neat little boxset and the films range from Fantastic to meeah I preferred the original to what a lovely setting and soundtrack. Dirt cheap too, although I'm not sure there's a huge improvement betweixt DVD and Blu ray, go with the Blu.
