The Silence of the Lambs is the Best RomCom of the Year

To film school students or even casual watchers of popular movies, The Silence of the Lambs is an iconic movie. With the memorable villain, Hannibal Lecter, most people know the story or at least know the phrase “Hannibal the Cannibal”.

This trailer takes the chilling story of the classic thriller and turns it on its head. Spinning the tale as a light-hearted love story. Making it a romantic comedy.

As strange as it seems, all it takes is a little creative inspiration for independent filmmakers to change the feel of a popular movie.
