The Silence of the Lambs is a 1991 psychological thriller starring Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster. Ever wondered whether The Silence of the Lambs is based on a true story? How creepy would that be? Thankfully, it is a work of fiction.

However, Hannibal Lector’s character is based on an actual person. Alfredo Ballí Treviño, a Mexican doctor, served 20 years in prison for the murder in the Penal del Topo Chico in Monterrey, Mexico. Thomas Harris, the author of The Silence of the Lambs, met him while he was serving his sentence. Dr. Trevino spent the later years of his life treating poor people and trying to atone for his past deeds.
