Its politics are abhorrent to me, but my god, it's such a slick, well-crafted thriller ... that I can't hate it
Unpleasant but suspenseful film noir.
A tense thriller that holds your attention to the very end. The film is aided by one of Bernard Hermann's better scores.
The remake with De Niro had the most to fear from this superior little thriller!
A classic revenge thriller.
works best as a twisted nail-biter, punctuated brilliantly with an apocalyptic score by Bernard Herrmann
A lawyer finds his family terrorized by a brutal woman hating sociopath who blames him for sending him to jail for 8 years. Gregory Peck was the perfect casting choice as the morally upstanding husband and father who finds he must question his principles when the law fails to protect them from such a wily and dangerous predator. But it is Mitchum on top form who steals the film and brings a real sense of underlying menace to his character; the scenes he shares with Peck crackle with tension. There's also some strong support from the ever reliable Martin Balsam and Telly Savalas (sporting a full head of hair!) and the family scenes are refreshingly syrup free. With a very memorable score and great showdown featuring a classic closing speech, this is far better than the uncharacteristically crass Martin Scorsese remake.
It's not what he does ... it's what he may do. Mitchum gives elegance to one of the screen's worst creepy bad guys, conveying evil with his eyes, along with the screaming realization that he's gonna enjoy doing it. The battle between the forces of good versus the other has seldom been more clearly delineated.
This is a great thriller, it's exciting and suspenseful, and has a couple of great actors. I highly recommend it.
A pulse racing epic battle between a criminal and the man who wronged him, Cape Fear is both psychologically frightening and maddening to the senses. Made in the 60's, there is no comparison to the black and white night, so forbidding and frightful that color would ruin a perfectly good chase scene.
