Rape Fear

1 year, 4 months ago at Dec 5 21:49

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

I just watched this (Finally!) for the first time today and I was suitably blown away. You're review here is short & sweet but completely on target. I agree with every word.

"12/24 Synopsis: An extremely violent ex-con is determined to exact revenge upon the lawyer he blames for his incarceration. Finally, after years of telling myself, "You really need to watch this movie," I actually did earlier today. Now bear in mind that I haven't seen the remake w/ De Niro either but there's no way that I'll believe that it's better than this! I love Robert D (well maybe not quite as much as others do...) yet we're talking about Peck (one of the three greatest film stars EVE"

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 enjoying more the recent version, usually just because you saw it first. Another effect is that you spend way too much time comparing the two movies, sometimes for the most trivial details. So, you can imagine that this first viewing was not really optimal and I might give it a 2nd chance in the future. On the other hand, is it such a great movie which requires multiple viewings? I’m not so sure abo” read more

"February 3 "I got somethin' planned for your wife and kid that they ain't nevah gonna forget. They ain't nevah gonna forget it... and neither will you, Counselor! Nevah!" I decided to watch this before seeing the remake. This was a very good thriller with a good story and dialogue. Gregory Peck manages to amaze me again with his great performance. Not the best movie he's been in, but it is a pretty good movie that actually still holds up very well."
