    Movie Madness is an event pitting 64 films against each other in a tournament where only one will triumph (to find out more,click here).
    Who will progress to the next round? You decide.

    The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
    One of only three films to collect the top five Oscars (best picture, best director, best actor, best actress, best screenplay), this film debuted Hannibal Lecter to the world as one of the most iconic horror antagonists of all time, despite only appearing on-screen for a little over 16 minutes.


    Alien (1979)
    Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi horror film is a true masterpiece, seamlessly blending together ideas into one cohesive whole. As an extra-terrestrial being kills off the crew of a spaceship the tension ratchets up to a thrilling finale.

    Tooough choice but i just went for Alien over Silence of the Lambs.

    I reckon it will be close but alien is a classic of the Scifi genre and no matter how awesome silence of the lambs is i'd probably choose to watch alien out of the two right now.

    The Silence of the Lambs was just creepy. Also, Anthony Hopkin's acting was stellar.

    Silence - wasn't the screen debut of Hannibal Lecter, that was Michael Mann's Manhunter some years earlier. Very good thriller.

    Alien - about the only problem I have with it is the 'man in a rubber suit' reveal. Another utterly classic horror film.
