I’ve seen a lot of posts expressing concern or dismay at the grisly horror and gore in Hannibal. I know it’s put some people off watching the show.
So I want to argue that Hannibal not only boasts a fantastic cast and beautiful visuals, but is also neither exploitative nor gratuitous, and that it’s a must-watch even—and especially—if you’re not a fan of horror.
This is long and full of screencaps because I like Hugh Dancy’s face—and there are SPOILERS galore—so hit the jump.
