Hannibal Lecter is a terrifying character, no matter how many times you see Silence of the Lambs. He’s less of a force in Hannibal and less of a focus in Red Dragon. The other portrayals, no matter how strong, don’t rattle you the same way Anthony Hopkins does as the way-ahead-of-you cannibalistic former psychiatrist and serial killer. His presence in the 1991 film is jarring, as he slows your comfort to a halt as the cold, hard murderer with a magnetism you or Clarice Starling can’t seem to pull away from. So naturally W Magazine had Kristen Wiig, Jane Fonda, Mya Taylor, Carey Mulligan, and Greta Gerwig read Lecter’s chilling lines.
