Silence of the Lambs is largely predicated on the idea that you can get inside the head of a serial killer (of course, only by being one yourself). Serial killers sometimes operate on the road, making them even harder to track. These aren't monsters or myths, these are your unassuming neighbors. Next time you are standing in a line, think about the odds that someone in that line with you is into some sick stuff and may even act on it.
Of course, the odds of being victimized by one are super slim but, people win the lottery sometimes, too. I can't provide much comfort from this horror because it is very much real.
