“Hannibal” is a television reimagining of Thomas Harris’s famous ‘Hannibal Series’. In “Hannibal”, FBI special agents Jack Crawford and Will Graham and their team investigate gruesome murders. The show focuses on the murders of the Chesapeake Ripper, a notorious serial killer who has eluded the agents for years, with some episodes featuring the work of other murderers. Along the way, Doctor Hannibal Lecter (Will’s psychiatrist) assists the agents in their cases, but he must hide the fact that he is a killer and cannibal from the group. As the season goes on, darkness begins to creep in, and the stakes rise higher and higher.

“Hannibal” is an eerie and haunting show that has an oddly beautiful artfulness to it. Viewers should be warned though, that “Hannibal” is extremely gruesome and has no qualms about showing murders up close and personal. The plot is a little dense, but still very interesting and engaging. This show is very character driven, with character-based arcs making up a majority of the plot. The characters themselves are unique and scary yet very realistic (in a way). Each character has their own set of flaws and quirks, and everyone in “Hannibal” has so many secrets. The cinematography of this show is gorgeous, and is artsy and colourful in style. The soundtrack of “Hannibal” is bizarre yet fitting, and adds to the mood of the show.

Overall, the author of this review highly recommends “Hannibal”, but you’ll need a strong stomach to watch it. It is a truly unique show that manages to stand alone while still being based on a beloved book series. Due to graphic content, the author of this review believes “Hannibal” to be suitable for ages sixteen and up.
