Murder by Antler. 'True Detective' and 'Hannibal'

Watching the premiere of True Detective, I immediately thought it was sort of a rip-off of Hannibal's killer last season with the use of antlers. I was actually surprised more of the internets didn't mention anything…

Then I saw this from Bryan Fuller (Hannibal):
"Anybody who saw [the Stephen King TV miniseries] Salem’s Lot in 1979 where James Mason impaled that guy on the antlers, it’s probably all coming from that traumatic experience in our childhoods. So I imagine they probably saw the same thing that inspired the imagery in this show.” 
  Full quote and story at EW.

So, there you have it.
