We present you with some quotes from the minds of Hannibal Lecter and the people around him.
Hannibal is an American psychological thriller/horror/crime television series developed by Bryan Fuller. The plot and characters of the series are based on the novel franchise by Thomas Harris-Red Dragon(1981), The Silence of the Lambs(1988), Hannibal(1999), Hannibal Rising(2006). There also are five movies based on the novels Manhunter (19866), The Silence of the Lambs(1991), Hannibal(2001), Red Dragon(2002), and Hannibal Rising(2007).
Hannibal is so gruesome that it’s beautiful. It is such a brilliantly and artistically made TV series that once you have watched it, no other horror seems horrifying enough. Hannibal introduces you to monsters, monsters that are too real, so real that they can easily be lurking around you right now and you wish you never find them because once you do find them, they will cut you open in half.
The three-seasons and thirty-nine-episodes series premiered on NBC on April 4, 2013, and the third and final season ended on August 29, 2015. The series was canceled further because of the low ratings.
But now, with the Hannibal series re-launched on Netflix from June 5, 2020, and trending from then on, the hooked audience, along with the cast and crew are hoping for another season, yay! (fingers crossed).
And with this hope, We’ve collected some of Hannibal’s Quotes from films, novels, and the television show.
