When you read about serial killers you hear a few consistent things: that they first tortured animals, that they were molested or sexually abused, and that they were fans of The Gilmore Girls. Or was that Gary Gilmore? Or the Gill Man?

Forget it, there’s a lot of things about what makes serial killers who they are, and sometimes it’s intriguing and sometimes it ruins the mystique. What will become of the still cool (I like Red Dragon and I love Hannibal with vigor) character of Hannibal Lecter when we see him in short pants?

Good question. Until that question is answered, enjoy the teaser poster for Hannibal Rising, the prequel to Manhunter/Silence of the Lambs/Hannibal/Red Dragon/A Bug’s Life. It’s coming in 2007, not unlike Lily Thai.
