A retired FBI agent with psychological gifts is assigned to help track down "The Tooth Fairy", a mysterious serial killer. Aiding him is imprisoned forensic psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter.
When Lecter is given the phone, he punches the button in the cradle in a sequence, dialing area code 312, which would be for a number in downtown Chicago. This trick worked on pre-digital phones. It replicates what happens when a telephone dial is turned. When you put your finger in the hole for a specific digit, pull it round to the stop, then release it, the spring turns the dial back, creating one click for each digit as it passes. As the number 0 is the last in the sequence, it clicks ten times. Upon the arrival of touch-tone phones, wiz kids such as a young Steve Wozniac, who founded Apple, could build boxes to generate the tones, making phone calls for free. The phone company later changed this to prevent such things.
Think to yourself that every day is your last. The hour to which you do not look forward will come as a welcome surprise. As for me, when you want a good laugh, you will find me in fine state, fat and sleek, a true hog of Epicurus's herd.
(at around 1h 40 mins) After Graham finds out the video tapes are what links the victims the aircraft flying at dusk is the outline of a Falcon 2000. The film takes place sometime in the early '80s and the Falcon 2000 was not delivered until March of 1995.
