Rape Fear

Stunningly tense, dark, and disturbing for a '60s film. Worthy of comparison with other lurid, yet artfully directed classic thrillers of the era like "Psycho" and "In Cold Blood". Robert Mitchum's Max Cady is one of the most terrifying, creepy, and barbaric stalkers in film history, even more brutal than his unforgettable Harry Powell in "Night of the Hunter".

A good movie

After hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Honestly, even though I enjoyed it, I thought it was slightly disappointing. That’s actually a rather common problem when you first watch a decent remake like the version directed by Martin Scorsese, when you see later on the original version, there is this feeling of déjà vu and you usually end up enjo... read more

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" Forget the overly obvious 1991 Scorcese remake; the first Cape Fear is a nail-biting thriller that subtly explores the nature of guilt and fear, as well as the double-sided coin of good and evil. "

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: March (34 movies items)

"Re-watch - March 24th It's been so long since I last watched this it felt more like a first viewing. Man, Mitchum is super menacing in this...you can feel the threat he poses to the family just by the way he carries himself. Everything here is wonderfully done, and the only thing missing is that perfect 10 feeling. So glad I finally bought a copy for my collection."
