5Buffalo Bill - The Silence of the Lambs 1991


"I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having a friend for dinner." - Dr. Hannibal Lecter

The Silence of The Lambs is about a young F.B.I trainee who gets advice from serial killer and prisoner, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, in her search of another serial killer, Buffalo Bill. Buffalo Bill, real

name Jame Gumb, targeted overweight women, he would fake an injury and once they got closer, he'd kidnap them. He murdered these women with the intention to use their skin to make a "woman suit" for himself. Buffalo Bill was based on several serial killers. The first is Ed Gein, who would wear the skin of his victims. Also, Ted Bundy, who faked an injury to get close to his victims. Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer, who inserted foreign objects into his victims and dumped their bodies in the woods. Lastly, Jerry Brudos, who kept his victims' shoes and dressed up like them. Although overshadowed by Hannibal, Buffalo Bill remains one of the most terrifying fictional serial killers.
