A Bittersweet Last Supper With “Hannibal”

0

Well my fellow Fannibals, we have reached our last supper with our beloved Cannibal Doctor and his Empathic Disciple.

Of course the main thing EVERYONE is gonna talk about is the ending where Hannibal and Will take down the Great Red Dragon with a knife and a hatchet. It was a gruesome and bloody dance but once the Red Dragon was defeated Will has a revelation. “You’re right, it does look black in the moonlight…”

That was in reference to the comment Hannibal made about how blood looks black in the moonlight. Anyway, Will comes to the realization that Bedelia was right. He can’t live without Hannibal and he can’t go home to his wife and stepson. So what does he do? He takes a swan dive off the cliff taking Hannibal with him. That scene really reminded me of Thelma & Louise. I’ve heard a lot of people say they thought about Sherlock and Moriarty. The difference is that they weren’t fighting each other. Rather they seemed to just accept their fate and go out together.

Let’s not forget the post credit scene with Bedelia waiting for someone with her leg as the main course. Many Fannibals hope that this is a sign that its not over! Somehow Hannibal and/or Will survived the fall and came back to keep Hannibal’s promise to eat Bedelia. At first I just thought that Bedelia did that to herself because she was so terrified that Hannibal would escape and come for her so she beat him to the punch. Who knows.

According to Bryan Fuller, Hannibal’s story isn’t over until he’s dead. He is still hopeful that another station will pick up the series but with Netflix and Amazon turning down the offer(Fuck You, Amazon and Netflix!!) I’m not sure it’s gonna happen. Maybe a mini-series or movie is in the cards so let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Also can we just talk about Hannigram really quick? I love how Bryan Fuller isn’t afraid to come out and say “Yeah, Hannibal and Will are a thing”. Then you get shows like Sherlock and Supernatural that love to dance around the issue. So suck it, Destiel and Johnlock shippers! Our show actually had the balls to take it a step further!

Another fun fact about this episode is the ending song by Siouxsie Sioux. The title is Love Crime and you’ll be delighted to know that it was made by a Fannibal. That’s right, Siouxsie Sioux loved the show and was inspired to make music for it. Isn’t it amazing how artists can come together and create something amazing.

I can go on for days about how amazing this show is that that it is a mistake to let it go. This show was art so I guess not everyone can appreciate it. Thank you, Bryan Fuller for setting a new standard for good TV and creating such a magnificent and beautifully dark drama.

Here’s a fun video I found that plays to Love Crime by Siouxsie Sioux. It has clips from all the seasons so enjoy!

Dinner Is Coming To An End…Or Is It?

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that NBC has made the worst mistake of it’s existence. They have decided that as brilliant as Hannibal is, they’d rather not continue with it. I’ll never understand why companies do this. You’ve got a critically acclaimed show with brilliant actors and a great plot and you decide “Whatever let’s trash it while the getting is good”?!

It’s almost as if they want to lose viewers. Well, I thought that all hope was lost. Yet another amazing show that got the ax for no reason…until I saw that support from other Fannibals like myself. Carlos Mazal form Uruguay has created on online petition on change.org to save the show. It’s actually received over 67,000 signatures and need 75,000! It’s been mentioned all over twitter with #SaveHannibal. So please be a gem and sign the petition. I’m sure Hannibal won’t make you part of his main course if you do.

Not only are the Fannibals fighting to keep the show but Brian Fuller, the show’s creator, is hopeful that Hannibal will be picked up for another season elsewhere. Can we say Netflix or Amazon? Nothing is set in stone yet but we all need to keep our fingers crossed and hope that we can save this deliciously gory show from the copping block. I really don’t want this dinner party to end.

Shall We “Eat The Rude” Together?

A thousand apologies for not being able to live tweet during Penny Dreadful yesterday. I was a bridesmaid for my friend’s wedding. It was fun. The Maid of Honor got drunk and started crying, the speeches were tear-jerkers, we(the bridesmaids) had to hold the bride’s dress up so she could pee, and of course the food was delicious.

Speaking of food. How is everyone liking the premiere of our favorite cannibal? Since live tweeting is going to well with Penny Dreadful, I thought it would be fun to live tweet during Hannibal. So please check out TWITTER and join the conversation. I’m super excited for this season because the main story arc is going to be based off of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon. If you have no idea what that entails then I suggest you pick up the book or watch the films “Red Dragon” with Edward Norton or “Manhunter” with William Peterson.

Hope to see you there this Thursday. Don’t be late for dinner!

R.I.P Dracula

1

I’m seeing some mixed reports about this show. A friend and fan of the show told me that NBC was cancelling Dracula. This breaks my heart because it’s a great show to watch. I liked the costumes and I liked that story around Dracula and Van Helsing’s vendetta against the Order of the Dragon. I want another season! But if the vampires aren’t sparkling and bitching about life, then TV/Movies won’t bother with it. It’s ridiculous! Let’s the stupid teens have Vampire Diaries and let the grown ups have Dracula!

Here’s where it gets interesting. Some reports are floating around that the UK is picking up the series for the second season but NBC may not. Makes no sense to me but if that’s the way they want it then maybe BBC America might air it(here’s a link). There’s also a petition going around the Internet hoping to get NBC’s attention.

Anyway, let’s hope that the show comes back for another season, even if it’s the last season. I just don’t like unfinished stories.

Here is a link to the online petition if you are interested in showing your support for the show: https://www.change.org/petitions/nbc-continue-producing-nbc-dracula

[Side Note]

Unfortunately, as of May 10, 2014 Dracula has officially been cancelled. YOU SUCK, NBC!

Favorite Horror Director: John Carpenter

Favorite Horror Author: Anne Rice

Fun Fact: I believe in the Paranormal

Current Obsession: Geez, where to begin. NBC Hannibal, Doctor Who, and NBC Dracula

Welcome one and all! Now what can I say about Horror…IT’S FUCKING AMAZING!! Growing up in a conservative/superstitious house, I was discouraged from Horror as a whole. Maybe that’s why I like it so much. It was something forbidden. Seriously, my mother thought I was inviting the Devil into the house whenever I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I also think my belief in the paranormal adds to my passion for horror. You should’ve seen me seeing Paranormal Activity for the first time…freaked out so bad! It wasn’t funny then but it’s funny now!

I’m always looking for a new thrill whether it’s in books or movies. I absolutely love Stephen King’s work! Christine has to be one of my favorites. Anne Rice is also one of my favorites because she makes horror sexy and I love her characters. The Vampire Lestat is awesome because he absolutely loves what he is and he doesn’t apologize for it. That’s how I like my characters, very unapologetic.

Anyway, the lovely Damsel Cannibal got me interested in writing years ago and I haven’t looked back since. The problem we noticed is that the literary world is lacking in good Horror stories and it’s getting harder every year trying to convince publishers that what they need is good stories with even better female protagonists.  Oh well, we’ll get there eventually! I’ve had a couple of short stories(here)published but nothing major…yet! College has taken up most of my time, but I do enjoy jotting down a new idea for a story when I should be taking notes.

So for all of you who are like me, where Horror has become a guilty pleasure, come hang out with us Damsels! Here’s a great place to kick back and enjoy screams, buckets of blood, nightmares. And please check out my own blog I love to ramble on and on about the paranormal there. Thanks for hanging out!
