Darkly Funny, Behind-the-Scenes Photos from ‘Silence of the Lambs’

We love exploring behind-the-scenes moments from our favorite television shows and movies, but as Halloween draws near, we’ve been focused on essential horror films. One of the works that will undoubtedly make our list is Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs. The always wonderful website This Must Be the Place published a series of behind-the-scenes images from the movie about a fledgling FBI agent who hunts a serial killer with the help of a cannibalistic psychopath, Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

It’s somewhat surreal to see the cast of Demme’s film — figures people have feared for over two decades — laughing it up on set. Hopkins is pictured chuckling behind his steel-toothed mask and crew are posed next to a disfigured female skin suit. Ted Levine, who plays creepy murderer Jame Gumb (Buffalo Bill), doesn’t break character too much. We do get to see his on-screen pet dog Precious as a stuffed toy. Put the lotion in the basket, and head to our gallery below for more darkly funny photos.
