God bless the makers of this GIF set, and God bless the Internet.
I mean: I promise I’ll shut up about it after this. It clearly can’t be a case of “ripping something off,” which I initially thought the almost equally similar deer-antler-corpse scene very much was, because, like: the Hannibal episode aired on Friday and the True Detective finale aired on Sunday. There’s literally no way the makers of TD could have seen the Hannibal sequence or had time to imitate it.
So, somehow, these shows just happen to have so much in common, visually and tonally, that pretty much the exact same very weird camera shot, later used in a dream sequence in the exact same very weird context — troubled, hallicunation-prone, disgraced detective in elaborately creepy serial-killer lair looks up, through dome with round hole in the peak, sees surreal vision of cosmic evil looking down at him — occurred on both shows.
You don’t have to pick a side, necessarily, but it’s pretty darn hard not to notice.
