Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Murderers!

Yesterday’s October Scary Movie choice was The Silence of the Lambs, because, quite frankly, it’s damn time I actually watched that movie. I was a little sleepy due to all the early shifts I’ve been having at the Day Job, but that is a freaking amazing movie right there. It got me thinking a little bit, too, on how I’ve yet to really develop a story idea that deal with a serial killer, and that’s kind of a shame. It’s always exciting to try to tread into new territory with my writing, and, if Silence of the Lambs displays so well, it’s also a great chance to delve into some cool psychological concepts.

Now, the first step before any of this hits the ground (other than the millions of other projects I should finish first), I know I want to track down the Thomas Harris novel and devour that as well. And then probably a million other books in the same ilk, as well as movies, and that’s when I realize that this isn’t a genre I know much about, which is probably why I haven’t thought of a plot or two in that vein yet. But I could definitely take some recommendations.

Then again, Se7en was one of those movies that I watched frequently enough that people kind of started to get a little worried about me. But a good psychological serial killer is something that you have to put a lot of thought into, I’d imagine, and I just never really bothered to work out a concept like that.

And, yes, now I finally have eradicated the one thing holding me back from getting into the Hannibal show, which I’ve wanted to do because holy crap, gorgeous.



    • I haven’t yet, but it’s on “the List.” Unless something is really, really, really up my alley (like Fury Road!), I tend to avoid things that have a lot of hype around them, and Steig Larrson’s books definitely had a ton of hype that kind of caused me to shy away from it. But I’ve heard interesting things about it, so I’m sure I’ll get around to it.

  1. Serial killers like Hannibal really creep me out.Which they are supposed to do! I still prefer the haunted house kind of creepy. I have seen Silence of the Lambs. I’m not sure I could watch it again.
