Hannibal Lecktor made his screen debut in this underrated and hypnotic murder thriller, based on Thomas Harris's best-selling novel 'Red Dragon'. Scot Brian Cox's portrayal of the serial killer is much less melodramatic than Anthony Hopkins' in 'Silence of the Lambs' and the resulting film is a far superior chiller than its better known sequel. Be afraid, very afraid !
