Austin-based movie theater chainlet and quote-along movie feast coordinator the Alamo Drafthouse has announced its second batch of custom wines, inspired by director Jonathan Demme's 1991 thriller The Silence of the Lambs. Starting today, "The Cannibal Chianti," a Spanish blend, and the Buffalo Bill-inspired "Suit Yourself Pinot Grigio," a 2012 vintage "made with fruit from California's Central Coast and inland vineyards," will be available at all Drafthouse theaters nationwide as well as online. Both wines are $32.

Additionally, a limited number of web-exclusive "Lecter's Packages" ($75) are available that include both bottles of wine as well as a "leather red dragon bag of fava beans" — complete with recipe — to pair with the Chianti and a "burlap bag containing a bottle of Buffalo Bill lotion" to use with the Pinot Grigio.

Like with its Princess Bride-inspired wine series last year, select locations in Texas, Virginia, Missouri, and Colorado will be hosting themed feasts starting in June and through mid-July to coincide with the release. Take a look below for the announcement video as well as the full menu that will be offered at the feasts:
