Hannibal is an intelligent, fascinating, immersive, and stylish show. It is horrifying for all the obvious reasons - and for some less obvious reasons. I cannot recommend Hannibal enough.
One of the most fascinating characters in literature and cinema is Hannibal Lecter, the refined cannibal psychiatrist. Bryan Fuller, creator of such darkly visionary shows like Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, and Mockingbird Lane returns with his darkest vision yet: Hannibal. The series follows Hannibal as envisioned in Thomas Harris’s Red Dragon: before anyone knew Hannibal was a killer. We chatted with Bryan about the nature of darkness, the psychological toll the subject matter takes, cannibalism, and dogs. Don’t worry; no dogs were harmed in the making of the show or this interview.
An international trailer has appeared for "Hannibal," and this is a good two-minute look at the series.
