About the Film

When a father’s last words to his young son and daughter concern the secret location of a stolen fortune, psychotic preacher Harry Powell decides to do whatever it takes – even kill – to learn its hiding place. When he marries their fragile widowed mother, the children realize their only chance for survival lies on the run. This 1955 noir classic is now considered to be one of the scariest films of all-time. “Chilling.” (Roger Ebert) “Shocking.” (The Village Voice) “A terrifying masterpiece.” (TV Guide)

The Night of the Hunter

One of the finest films you could ever hope to see, 'The Night of the Hunter' is an example of wonderful filmmaking. Robert Mitchum's Preacher is out of type, but genius. The direction, particularly where the children escape downstream into a dreamlike state is brilliance. Perhaps a forgottern classic, but well worth a download.


A fantastic, fantastic film. With Charles Laughteon's spellbinding Direction (which is years ahead of its time), and Mitchum's best ever performance you can't go wrong.


Disturbing but in a good way. The direction is a head of its time and so is the story telling. I cant believe how old this film actually is.
