4. Hannibal, Baltimore’s Most Wanted Murderer

This series of three seasons is especially worth a look for its main interpreter, the Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen. The American series looks at the strange relationship between the famous psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter and one of his patients, a young FBI profiler named Will Graham, tortured by his all-consuming fascination with serial killers… Serial killer Hannibal Lecter fueled lots of fiction. Created by novelist Thomas Harris, the character first appears in the novel Red Dragon, released in 1981 (the film is available on Netflix). But it was really in 1991 that it gained momentum thanks to Anthony Hopkins who embodies it masterfully in the film Thesilenceofthelambs. A real shock!

He is the central character of a series of American horror films made up of nearly a dozen feature films, of the slasher type. Franchise Friday 13 was launched in 1980, with a first eponymous feature film, in order to take advantage of the success of the film Halloween, released two years earlier. The pitch? On Friday, September 13, 1957, a young boy named Jason drowned at Camp Crystal Lake. Many years later, in 1979, the camp is reopened… But the monitors of the establishment begin to disappear one after the other… If the original films are not available on any platform, you can nevertheless find the remake film, also titled Friday 13 (released in 2009), on Netflix.
