The Night of the Hunter Reviews


TIME Magazine

It is a garish, unbelievable but fairly exciting nightmare.

Ultimately the source of its style and power is mysterious -- it is a film without precedents, and without any real equals

This start for Gregory as producer and Laughton as director is rich in promise but the completed product, bewitching at times, loses sustained drive via too many offbeat touches that have a misty effect.

All this has been crisply compacted into clear screen drama by the late James Agee and it is put forth under the direction of Mr. Laughton in stark, rigid visual terms.

There's the absolute authority of Mitchum's performance -- easy, charming, infinitely sinister.

One of the most chilling suspense films ever made, it's also the finest role of Robert Mitchum.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Though purely homegrown, Hunter contains no social critique -- the issues are elemental, the morality biblical, the trials Homeric. In terms of cinematic texture, it's a hound from hell.

Laughton creates terrific tension between Mitchum and his prey, turning the preacher into a bloodthirsty wolf and Willa's children into tender lambs.
