Two popular serial-killer thrillers. In 'The Silence of the Lambs' (1991), 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 Hannibal Lecter (Anthony 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. 'Summer of Sam' (1999) is set in the heady days of punk in late Seventies Manhattan. Vinny (John Leguizamo) is determined to live up to his reputation as the neighbourhood stud, despite the devoted love of his wife Dionna (Mira Sorvino). Ritchie (Adrien Brody), meanwhile, funds his attempts to make it in the music industry by moonlighting as a male stripper. When a serial killer starts picking out his victims in their area, the finger of suspicion falls on them all.
