Clarice Starling from The Silence of the Lambs

Hello, Clarice! There aren’t a lot of movies that quite achieve the creepiness factor of The Silence of the Lambs, which has Jodie Foster in an Oscar-winning role as Clarice Starling. She is a good cop who is forced to use the help of a serial killer slash cannibal that is already in prison in order to catch one of the same who is still roaming free. The whole movie is full of really intense and creepy scenes, and Jodie really brings believability to the part! Props to Julianne Moore for playing the role in the sequel, too!
