Silence of the Lambs Would Be a Ton of Fun as a Romantic Comedy

Most of us know The Silence of the Lambs as that seemingly family-friendly film about an FBI agent trying to make a name for herself that our parents mistakenly let us watch when we were way to young to learn about cannibalism. But did you ever wonder what the horror movie would look like as a rom-com?

Mashable cut up some footage to reimagine the cannibalistic classic a different sort of film where Clarice Sterling (Jodie Foster) and Hannibal Lector (Anthony Hopkins) goof around a little more. Maybe those two could be star-crossed lovers. Maybe Clarice could be crushing on the lawyer dude with the slick hair. Maybe serial killers aren’t so scary after all.
