SUN­DAY RED DRAGON

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

9.30PM, ONE Af­ter the classy chills of The Si­lence of the Lambs and the crass kills of Han­ni­bal, An­thony Hop­kins re­turns with a third con­sis­tently creepy serve of ev­ery­one’s favourite chi­anti-sip­ping can­ni­bal, Dr Han­ni­bal Lecter. From a high-se­cu­rity jail cell, the bad doc­tor helps an FBI pro­filer (Ed­ward Nor­ton) track down the new se­rial killer on the block, co­de­named the Tooth Fairy (Ralph Fi­ennes). If this pre­quel to Lambs proves any­thing, it is that the like­able loath­some Lecter – one of the all-time great screen vil­lains – is in­fin­itely more creepy when locked away for the good of the world at large.
