Hannibal Lecter Almost Had A Very Different Mask
Apparently, Silence of the Lambs could've been about a catcher or a knight.
There is perhaps no horror movie mask as horrifying as the one Anthony Hopkins wore as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs.

Luckily, those bars were added over his mouth. I mean, without them, the catcher's mask would've done a better job at preventing cannibalism.
