Jonathan Demme’s “The Silence of the Lambs” is one of the best horror thriller movies ever made; excellent Award winning performances, full of dark humour and gory thrills. This original 1991 UK quad features a design by Marcus Silversides commissioned by the design agency BLT Communications. It really is a clever and visually stunning piece of artwork with an amazing use of colour and imagery featuring skull adorned winged moths  over the two leading characters’ mouths. Presented in excellent condition this rolled (as issued) example displays superbly and represents a quality piece of original cinematic movie memorabilia.

Trivia: When Sir Anthony Hopkins found out that he was cast as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, based on his performance as Dr. Frederick Treves in The Elephant Man (1980), he questioned director Jonathan Demme, and said “But Dr. Treves was a good man”, to which Demme replied “So is Lecter, he is a good man too. Just trapped in an insane mind.”
