The Academy Awards Using ‘Silence of the Lambs’ To Promote Oscars

Even though the Academy Awards treat our genre like the bastard child of film, they’re using Silence of the Lambs as a way of promoting the annual Oscars on February 26. They keep tricking us into watching, and it’s always the most excruciatingly boring event filled with clouds of smug and self-congratulatory clapping. You did it guys!

Below is a look at a teaser banner featuring Anthony Hopkins, wearing his nightmarish mask, in Silence of the Lambs, with the message: “We showed you how to be afraid.” The film also starred Jodie Foster, and garnered five Oscars.

Horror will one day return to glory.
