    A retiBig Sky Donno Actor
    FBI agent with psychological gifts is assigned béo help track lao dốc ” The Tooth Fairy “, a mysterious serial killer ; aiding him is imprisoned criminal genius Hannibal ” The Cannibal ” Lecter .

    In June 1980, during a symphony orchestral performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Baltimore, famous Lithuanian-American forensic psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter winces at several wrong notes played by one of the flutists on stage. Later, in his townhouse at 5 Chandler Square, he hosts an elegant dinner party for the symphony board, where the main subject of conversation is the disappearance of the same flutist. He then serves the guests a delicious meal, and when asked about the amuse bouche, he says with a smile “If I tell you, I’m afraid you won’t even try it.” much to everyone’s amusement.

    After the guests leave, Lecter is visited by Will Graham, a young gifted FBI agent with whom he has been working on the psychological profile of a local serial killer nicknamed ” the Chesapeake Ripper “, who removes parts of the victims seemingly keeps them as trophies. They discuss the matter in Lecter’s office, where Graham theorises that their profile is all wrong ; after learning that flesh taken from the back of a roasted chicken is known as ” oysters “, he received a flashback of the Ripper’s third victim, Darcy Taylor, who was missing flesh from her back. The ” trophies ” that were removed were all used in cooking, convincing him that the killer is actually a cannibal. Lecter notes Graham’s abilities as an ” eidektor “, one with extreme imagination và visual memory combined with pure empathy. Graham is puzzled that Lecter, an expert in his field, didn’t come up with the cannibal idea before .

    After apologising for seemingly not having faith in Lecter, and the case getting to him, Lecter leaves the room to get Graham’s coat. Behind the doctor’s back, however, Graham scans the souvenirs on the shelf and looks through a copy of Larousse Gastronomique, noticing that an entry of Ris de Veau was notated as “sweetbreads”. As it dawns on him that Lecter is the Chesapeake Ripper, the doctor walks in from behind and stabs Graham in the abdomen with a linoleum knife, apologizing that the game must come to an end. He prepares to eat Graham’s heart as a tribute to his courage, but Graham manages to stab Lecter in the abdomen with arrows before shooting him down. Receiving a call from Graham, FBI agents and Maryland State Troopers arrive and apprehend Lecter, who is subsequently found insane at his trial and sentenced to nine consecutive life terms at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Graham recovers from his injuries at a mental institution and retires from the FBI, having been severely traumatized by the experience.

    In 1986, Graham has found self-imposed retreat at his beachfront house in Marathon, Florida, where he lives peacefully with his wife Molly & son Josh, making a living fixing boat motors. One day in April, he is visited by his ex-boss, Special Agent Jack Crawford, & they discuss the recent reports on another serial killler who has appeared on the scene. Nicknamed ” the Tooth Fairy “, this killer has stalked và murdered two seemingly random families of five in their homes during sequential đầy đủ moons, first killing the Jacobi family in Birmingham on the night of February 25 th, & then the Leeds family in Atlanta on the night of March 28 th. Both crimes have similar circumstances : the killer smashes the bathroom mirrors, wears latex gloves mập avoid leaving prints, và has size-11 shoes và AB positive blood. Hoping bự tốc độ things up, và capture the Fairy before his next attack in three weeks, Crawford pleads for Graham lớn kiểm tra out the crime scenes và look at the evidence Khủng provide another point of view. Graham is reluctant at first, but changes his mind after viewing family photos of the victims, believing the death of another family bự be an unbearable burden on his conscience. Although a reluctant Molly strongly objects, he decides bự accept the free-lance assignment while assuring her ” this one will không bao giờ see me or know my name … The cops will have phệ take him lao dốc, not me. “At the Leeds house that night, Graham closely examines the evidence throughout, starting with the back porch & door, where the Tooth Fairy gained entry using a glass cutter for the glass pane nearest lớn the doorknob. Noticing a dog bed on the porch, he records that nobody heard barking on the night the family was killed, & it was không bao giờ mentioned in the case tệp tin. He goes upstairs phệ the blood-splattered master bedroom, và records that the intruder first cut Charles Leeds ’ throat with a buck knife, then shot his wife Valerie in the stomach with a silencer, before proceeding lớn the children’s bedroom Khủng shoot them in their beds. The killer then dragged the children’s bodies into the master bedroom, where he gave ” extra attention ” mập Mrs. Leeds. The smashed bathroom mirror has shards that were taken out và inserted into the orbital sockets of the victims, but the reason why is puzzling mập Graham. Later, surrounding himself with crime scene photos in his Sheraton khách sạn room, Graham has a flash of sudden insight & answer bự his question ; the mirror pieces make each child’s chết eyes look alive, so sánh they can act as an audience when the Fairy touched their mother. Traces of talcum powder found on Mrs. Leeds ’ right inner thigh means that the killer took his latex gloves off when he made physical liên hệ with her, & there is a possibility that he also touched her eyes. Graham phones Crawford và asks for latent prints on her eyes, even her corneas .

    In an Atlanta Police Department briefing the next morning, the Tooth Fairy’s teeth (with a unique bite signature) are observed, derived from bite marks on Mrs. Leeds. Graham announces his findings on the murders; Mrs. Leeds and Samantha Jacobi were the primary targets, the attacks were not random as the killer was never out of control, but were highly organized and the women carefully chosen. The reason and method of choice remains unknown (as both women lived in two neighboring states and never met), but there is a connection between them that needs to be found out, and used to save lives. When asked why the killer won’t stop his rampage, Graham replies “because it makes him God. Would you give that up?”. According to Atlanta police chief R. J. Springfield, the family pets were absent in both murder scenes; the Leeds’ dog had suffered lethal injuries the night before and had to be taken to the vet, and Graham suggests a search of the Jacobi’s backyard for a buried cat. Also, a partial thumb print is found on Mrs. Leeds’ left eye. Outside the building, Graham and Crawford are confronted by Freddy Lounds, a sleazy reporter for the tabloid National Tattler who covered the conviction of Lecter, and now sniffing for leads on the Tooth Fairy story. Still angry at Lounds for sneaking into the institution and taking pictures of his knife wound, Graham goes right up into his face and tells him to stop interfering.

    The two agents stop phệ have coffee at a nearby diner, where Crawford congratulates his protege on his find, saying it was very good work. Graham, however, is convined that good work means ” seeing it all the way through và catching the guy, & I can’t bởi vì that ” ; what he had been able Khủng determine about the Tooth Fairy were just ” broad strokes ” because the killer has ” no face mập me ” – a quote he said about a serial killer he investigated before Lecter, nicknamed ” the Minnesota Shrike ”. When Crawford points out that Graham had no trouble unmasking the Shrike as Minneapolis pipe threader Garret Jacob Hobbs, Graham denies it ; most of his previous successes have been achieved through his insightful collaborations with Lecter, who has served as a resource ( và shortcut ) which they could possibly utilize for the rest of the case. At Crawford’s suggestion, Graham visits the Maryland State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, where the asylum chief administrator Dr. Frederick Chilton discusses how impenetrable Lecter has proven phệ be in psychological testing. Desperate Khủng crack Lecter ‘ s enigma, và asks Graham how did he catch Lecter. Graham merely replies “ I let him kill me ” .On their meeting, Lecter notices the aftershave that Graham wore in court. Both men have an intense conversation about the case và their own history, Lecter remarking the reason that Graham caught him is that they are both alike. Lecter gives insight into the Tooth Fairy, saying that the killer probably believes himself Khủng be disfigured, as the Tooth Fairy smashes the mirrors in the houses, & that the đầy đủ moon is likely béo play a part in the murders .Meanwhile, the Tooth Fairy is introduced as Francis Dolarhyde, the technical services manager of a đoạn phim processing firm in St. Louis called Chromalux, who suffers from a khung of split personality disorder. He worships Lecter, after learning of his crimes. Calling his other personality ” The Great Red Dragon ” ( because of his obsession with the William Blake painting, ” The Great Red Dragon & the Woman Clothed in Sun ” ), Dolarhyde is unable bự control his violent và sexual urges, which turn him into a dangerous serial mass killer. Thes e conditions were born from the systematic child abuse he suffered at the hands of his grandmother & step family, & he believes that his murders will help him manifest into the Dragon. Graham, on the other hand, continues phệ run into complications in his investigation. To complicate things further, Dolarhyde sends a người yêu thích letter bự Lecter, which the former provides the latter with Graham’s trang chủ address in code, endangering Graham. Molly & Josh are evacuated phệ a remote farm belonging béo Crawford’s brother. Graham discovers the secret communication và tries bự intercept it without Lecter’s knowledge, but the bác sĩ is quick lớn realize that the Feds are onto him và his protegé, và humiliates the authorities by upping the stakes : in return for his help in capturing the Tooth Fairy, he requests a first-class meal in his cell & having his book privileges returned. Lecter gets his wish và raises a toast bự the CCTV cameras, watched by Dr Chilton & Barney. Chilton is furious, while Barney watches in amusement .Hoping mập lure Dolarhyde into a trap, Graham gives Lounds an interview in which he gives disparaging details abut what the FBI believes the killer phệ be : impotent with females, sexually abuses the male victims & a pathetic loser, with Dr Lecter outraged that such a killer is on the same cấp độ as himself, whereas in fact they consider him cunning và highly dangerous. This provokes Dolarhyde, but instead of going immediately after Graham, he kidnaps Lounds from the Tattler’s office building in Chicago, và forces him bự recant his allegations on a taped recording. Dolarhyde then attacks & bites off Lounds ‘ lips before putting him in a wheelchair, setting him on fire & pushing the chair xuống dốc the street where it comes lớn rest outside the building. At about the same phút giây, Dolarhyde falls in love with a blind co-worker, Reba McClane. He becomes very shy & tentative around Reba, but she senses his attraction béo her & she is likewise attracted Khủng him. Dolarhyde takes Reba Khủng his large old trang chính in the woods và they spend the night together. In the morning, Dolarhyde wakes bự find Reba gone from the bed & he rushes around, frantic phệ find her. She was outside in the garden, but he was concerned she may have been snooping in the room where he kept his diary và a poster of the Red Dragon .Dolarhyde’s new-found love conflicts with his ” Dragon ” alter. He senses that the Dragon wants the woman, and Dolarhyde vigorously resists the demand. He becomes so sánh upset, that he grabs a sawed-off shotgun & places it in his mouth, preferring bự kill himself rather than turning kết thúc Reba béo the Red Dragon ( by murdering và ” changing ” her ). After taking Reba Khủng her home page, Dolarhyde attempts Khủng stop the Dragon’s ” possession ” of him. He believes that he must dominate the Dragon by consuming the original watercolor painting, so sánh he goes phệ the Brooklyn Museum, asks béo see the painting, then knocks out the female employee who took him bự a back room lớn see the painting. He immediately shreds the painting và starts shoving it into his mouth, eating it. Another female employee comes into the room & Dolarhyde attacks her. He doesn’t kill either woman, but he escapes .Graham eventually realizes that the killer knew the layout of his victims ‘ houses from their home page videos, which the killer could only have seen if he worked for the home page video clip editing company that transfers trang chủ movies bự Clip cassette, which reveals the company as Chromalux. Crawford & Graham go Khủng firm & interview the manager. After describing the person they are looking for ( the museum employees had provided a mô tả tìm kiếm ), the manager recognizes the person as Dolarhyde, và explains lớn Graham và Crawford that Dolarhyde’s job gives him access Khủng all trang chính movies passing through the company .Dolarhyde happens bự be coming into the office at about that phút giây, sees Graham, turns around & hurries out, knowing the Feds are getting close béo finding him. He decides Khủng go see Reba one last phút giây, but he finds her saying goodnight béo another co-worker of theirs, Ralph Mandy, who discourages her about being so sánh close phệ Dolarhyde và start going out with him. Enraged, Dolarhyde wastes no phút giây in shooting và killing Ralph, as he is walking lao dốc the walk from Reba’s house, then goes béo the door và accosts Reba, placing a cloth with chloroform end her mouth, rendering her unconscious. He takes her béo his house & brings her back mập consciousness, upset that she was betraying him. He tells her that he’s going mập shoot her & himself so sánh that the Red Dragon can’t have her, but she begs him Khủng let her go, or lớn run & take her with him. Instead, Dolarhyde spreads gasoline around & sets it ablaze, then takes the shotgun và points it at Reba. But, when he realizes he can’t bởi vì it, he repositions the gun và pulls the trigger. Blood spatters all end Reba’s face và she screams. She crawls forward và puts her hand on the open wound of the body toàn thân, then begins trying lớn find a way out of the house .Crawford, Graham & many other police officers come roaring up béo the house & meet Reba walking towards them. She tells them what happened, và as Graham attempts bự go into the house, it explodes in a huge fireball. He is given Dolarhyde’s diary / scrapbook, which was in a steel safe và thus spared from the flames. The book details the killer’s tragic childhood & obsessions with murder. Despite himself, Graham feels pity for Dolarhyde, who he realizes was made a trùm cuối, not born one. Word comes back from the forensic pathologist that the body toàn thân from the Dolarhyde house was not that of Dolarhyde’s ; It was actually Ralph Mandy, who had been on a week’s vacation, therefore no one had missed him. That meant that Dolarhyde was still alive. Crawford wastes no phút giây in calling Graham, who is at his home page with his wife & son, relaxing & telling them about what read from Dolarhyde’s diary. Graham enters the house, looking for Josh phệ get him béo come outside & sit with his parents, & notices almost immediately that the mirror in the entry area had been broken. He hears Crawford leaving a message on the phone, informing him that Dolarhyde is not yet chết, & goes Khủng the kitchen phệ arm himself with two sharp knives. He puts one under his belt in back và holds the other at the ready. He goes upstairs as quietly as possible, seeing more broken mirrors .As Graham slowly pushes open the door mập Josh’s bedroom, he sees his son standing there, with Dolaryhyde holding one arm around Josh và his other hand holding a piece of broken mirror pressed against Josh’s skin, near his right eye. After noticing that Josh has wet his pants, Graham, in order lớn provoke Dolarhyde, uses insults at Josh, pretending béo be disgusted at wetting himself. Dolarhyde is infuriated & flings Josh mập the side và attacks Graham. They struggle và during the fight, Dolarhyde slashes Graham across his abdomen. Graham then pulls the knife from his belt & jams it into Dolarhyde’s left thigh. Graham runs và ushers his son into the master bedroom, locking the door. Graham tells Josh mập hide under the bed và then goes béo his closet và retrieves a handgun, readying it mập fire when Dolarhyde finishes crashing through the door. However, Dolarhyde stops trying lớn break in .Graham edges forward & looks under the door. He hears his wife calling out và watches as she appears at the top of the stairs. As she makes her way lao dốc the hallway, he sees Dolarhyde step out behind her. He shouts at Molly mập get lao dốc, which she does, and Graham begins firing his pistol through the door. Dolarhyde also has a pistol & returns fire. They cơn sốt each other several times & both go xuống dốc. Molly pushes through the broken wood of the door & unlocks it, rushing bự Graham’s side, as he lay gasping for breath with blood bubbling from his mouth. Graham says bự Molly, ” Shoot him. ” Molly turns Khủng see Dolarhyde struggling bự sit up. She hurriedly grabs Graham’s pistol off the floor, steps forward into the hall, &, just as Dolarhyde is bringing his gun back up, she puts a shot right through his forehead, then another in his cheek. She rushes back into the bedroom lớn comfort Josh .After recovering, Graham receives a letter from Dr. Lecter, which bids him well và hopes that he isn’t too ” disfigured ” by his encounters with Dolarhyde & himself. Graham reads the letter while he’s out on his sailboat. He crumples the letter up và throws it away. Dr. Frederick Chilton informs Lecter that there is a young woman from the FBI waiting béo speak with him. Lecter thinks for a minute, looks up, và asks what her name is .
