Ask your average person for their top five scariest cinematic serial killers of all time, Hannibal Lecter is almost assuredly on their list.

This highly imaginary and luridly detailed series has become a cult favorite many years after cancellation due in part to the amazing Mads Mikkelson’s portrayal of Lecter. Join us for a loving tribute to one of our favorite, unfairly overlooked shows and a look into whether there’s any possibility for a return. Panelists: Kevin R. Grazier, Michele Hartman, Cat Smith Moderator: Leslie Hartman Jr.
