Do you remember what you did for Valentine's Day in 1991? Well, if you were old enough to see an R-rated movie, there's a chance that you might have celebrated the lovey-doviest of holidays by seeing one of the scariest thrillers of all time. Yep, Silence of the Lambs, the movie that made an anti-hero out of a guy who eats people's faces, opened in theaters on Feb. 14, 1991 – 25 years ago this week.

Horror Houses: Scary Settings That You Can See in Real Life, From The House on Haunted Hill to Insidious

It's may be cliché to say a given movie's setting is a character in of itself, but nonetheless it's often true when talking about the creepy locations of scary movies. This past week, the film Crimson Peak opened in theaters. The titular mansion – Allerdale Hall, colloquially known as Crimson Peak – seems designed to creep you out, even when there's nothing explicitly scary happening.

If someone asked you to name a Christmas carol, you'd probably have no trouble naming a dozen of them. If someone asked you to name a Halloween song, however, you might not be quite as quick to think up a complete playlist. You see, while Halloween can compete with Christmas well enough in the decoration and candy departments, there just aren't that many traditional songs associated with Halloween.

Act quick and you could own a piece of Silence of the Lambs memorabilia. In fact, you could live in it.

In case you needed to be reminded, Anthony Hopkins is amazing. Not only is he a deeply talented actor, but he's also an all-around gentleman and national treasure (even if he's, you know, not of our nation). And a few more reasons that support this claim have recently come forth.
1. This Letter He Sent Bryan CranstonIn October, Hopkins, like many of us, binge-watched Breaking Bad. However, like few of us, he sent a letter to Bryan Cranston after doing so. It read, in part, "Your performance as Walter White was the best acting I have ever seen – ever."
And he kept going! "If you ever get a chance to – would you pass my admiration to everyone – Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Aaron Paul, Betsy Brandt, R.J. Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Steven Michael Quezada – everyone – everyone gave master classes of performance…" Yes, that's Hannibal Lecter, gushing like a fanboy to the cast of Breaking Bad. Which brings us to…
2. Hannibal Lecter… in generalWe still have nightmares from Hopkins' portrayal of Thomas Harris' best-known creation. And 2,000 film buffs from LoveFilm.com recently voted Lecter the most terrifying horror film villain, which of course, adds to him having already been honored by the American Film Institute as their No. 1 villain of all time. Which brings us to…
3. This blooper reelThis blooper reel from Silence of the Lambs has been blowing up the Internet today, and really, we can sum up the reason for its popularity in one sentence: Anthony Hopkins does a Sylvester Stallone impression. (The rest of it's funny too, but we never thought we'd type "Anthony Hopkins does a Sylvester Stallone impression," so we're pretty over the moon about that.)

Well, Jodie Foster won't have to worry about Ricky Gervais tossing any barbs in her direction.
Foster, the veteran actress, director, and producer with more than 40 years in the business to her credit, is to receive next year's Cecil B DeMille award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press has announced.
Earlier, the group said that the hosts of their 70th annual ceremony Jan. 13, to be broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton on NBC, will be Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Their appearance follows Ricky Gervais's two funny but controversial years as emcee.

Sir Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar for playing one of the biggest psychos of all time, Hannibal Lecter, in 1991's The Silence of the Lambs.
Now he's playing the man who directed the movie that had all of America screaming, Alfred Hitchcock, at the time the Hollywood legend was making his classic 1960 film Psycho.
Here, in this first look from the movie Hitchcock, which began shooting last Friday (Hitch would have loved the date, Friday the 13th), Hopkins, 74, is seen as the bald, portly and droll 60-year-old.
