Ranking the 11 Most Beautifully Gruesome Crime Scenes on NBC's "Hannibal" (NSFW)

NBC’s “Hannibal” is a lot of things, one of the best dramas on television, one of the most TV’s beautiful shows, and “a vicious gut punch counterpoint to the dozens of procedurals that try to top each other with the creativity of their serial killers.” But it’s also a meticulously pieced together work of art. The crime scenes in “Hannibal” are the most disturbing, amazing, and beautiful things you’ll ever see on TV, network or otherwise. They truly are a thing of disgusting beauty, and the screengrabs below won’t do them nearly the justice.

If you’re still holding out on “Hannibal,” and you need one more reason to check in, if you’re a fan of blood, “Hannibal” is without a doubt the show for you. Here’s a rough ranking of the most beautifully gruesome murders scenes in “Hannibal’s” first season, so far. I saw “rough,” because art, as you know, is subjective.

    This post highlights exactly what is WRONG with Hannibal. Read this linked article: http://jeffreypoehlmann.hubpag...

    Now look at the production values of Hannibal again and decide whether the damage it could potentially do is worth it just for the vanity of the production team. Sure, there is value in the art. But it is overcome and overwhelmed by the glorification and "artistic appreciation" of the highly unrealistic and amped up murder scenes. It's ridiculous comedy, actually, only too sad to find funny. And taken out of context, it is even worse porn than the versions of leering crime scenes on other procedurals.

  • BlackRabbit

    Betcha these guys will get all the love at the cereal convention. I hear the Family Man will be there.

  • foolsage

    I wonder if Nimrod will find the guest of honor...

  • BlackRabbit

    Guest speaker this year, I understand. Has the most dreamy eyes.

  • annie

    I've seen my fair share of disgusting, from necrotic tissue going down to the boen to being elbows deep in someone's thorax… but this show manages to make me squirm like nothing else, each and every time. The cello thing really nailed my neck-squick (and really, every other anatomy squick I have).

  • foolsage

    I have an iron stomach. I assisted in hundreds of cancer surgeries in a previous role, and gore doesn't get to me at all anymore.

    This show though... the way some of the killers treat their kills... it's damned squicky.

  • BiblioGlow

    All this has convinced me of is that there at least three kinds of people.
    People who opened this and now have to go throw up (excuse me).
    People who like this show.
    People who make this show.
    Squick.

  • Feralhousecat

    I love this show.

  • AvaLehra

    This show is on regular TV, not cable? wow.

  • Torgotronic

    It amazes me that this gets through on network TV. A few years ago, this would have gotten a movie an R rating.

  • ceebee_eebee

    This show is so amazing I could weep from the magnificence. The gore, to me, is so artistic and dreamy (nightmarish) and unreal that nothing had bothered me at all. That is until last week and the operation on Chilton. I was shocked at my own horror, but WOW. That was too much.

  • delle

    I couldn't have said it better!

    Last week I was trying to figure out whether I should watch Hannibal before or after I had supper. It occurred to me that I could just as well do both at the same time, thinking that none of the previous episodes contained anything that would bother me to the point of putting me off my appetite. In the end I decided to wait till after the show before eating, and when I saw the operation scene I was so relieved I had, because that was the first time one of the scenes made my stomach turn. Nice to know I'm not the only one who had the same reaction to that one scene out of all of them.

  • llp

    I have regrets about opening this link.

  • Boo_Radley

    So you're basically saying that every episode is most gruesome?

  • emmelemm

    I'm literally gobsmacked that big-3 network TV is allowing this.

    Also, where have I been? I should be watching this.

    Also also, I have a high tolerance for gore but this is... just crazytown.

  • foolsage

    You should be watching this show.

  • $27019454

    So bummed I clicked on this. You could not pay me in drugs and cash and get me to watch this.

  • foolsage

    It's a remarkably good show. I had no interest until a post about it last week convinced me to give it a try; now I'm a serious fan.

  • Wōđanaz Óðinn

    Not even mushrooms?

  • I pretty much always scream when they cut from the crime scenes to Hannibal preparing his dishes.

  • Homestar

    I have a high tolerance for gore, and I can barely watch some of the scenes. The mushroom people happened on a day I had made sauteed mushrooms for lunch... my eyes were closed for some parts of that episode.

  • Jill

    Agree. I didn't realize quite how big of a pussy I was before watching this show. I really like it, but I make sure to wait until 10:10 each Thursday to begin watching just so I have the extra 10 minutes in case fast forward is needed (which happens about 90% of the time). Part of it is b/c my husband has no tolerance for gore and is always in the room when I watch it and part of it is because it's, um, right before my bed time.

  • Homestar

    Yeah, I know my boyfriend would like the show, but he cannot do the blood and guts part. So I watch it alone, on Hulu, the next morning.

  • rio

    When I die I wanna become a mushroom piñata.

  • Anna von Beav

    Hi def is most assuredly recommended. Since that 4th episode was unaired by the network, I bought it on iTunes and watched it on my super sharp computer... I may buy the whole season that way.

  • RilesSD

    The mushrooms have been the most beautifully disturbing scene so far. Damn this is such an incredible show.

  • Pete

    Holy shit. This just sold me. I'm buying it on blu-ray as soon as it comes out.

  • It's truly remarkable that someone at a network is signing off on this. I guess hyper competition will do that. Especially given that the recent failings at NBC have likely created a willingness to depart from the staid formula.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    The balance between the beauty and the gore on this show is so precise, I can't even be squeamish about it.

    After I saw it for the first time and screamed internally, that is.

  • alwaysanswerb

    Damn... just, damn. I WILL get around to watching this, I swear it.

  • Wicked

    People should watch this show, apart from being beautifully shot, it really delivers when it comes to portraying these eloquently grotesque murders. I really like Mads Mikkelsen's version of Hannibal, so cold and direct but also portraying some sort of humanity now and then. Hugh Dancy does so well as Will too! He is really underrated as an actor. One of my favorite also is Raul Esparza as Dr. Chilton... he does the part so well! I remember him from Law and Order SVU and I always thought he was such a good addition to that show. I was really surprised that they picked him to portray Chilton. Anyway, if you haven't watched Hannibal, you are MISSING OUT.

  • freetickles

    I was surprised they killed him off (at least I assume he's dead?) considering he had a big role later on in the books and movies.

  • cruzzercruz

    He isn't dead, he was left alive with Freddie Lounds pumping oxygen into him. Jack says later that it'll take all night to sew him up, indicating that he's will live.

  • John W

    And yet show a little too much ass in Game of Thrones and everyone goes ballistic.

  • annie

    All the T&A almost always serves just to titillate. In Hannibal, the grotesque beauty is there to make you uncomfortable at how beautiful you find something so awful.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    Every time I think the crime scene couldn't possibly be more disturbing, the show manages to one-up itself.
