Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The Night of the Hunter—incredibly, the only film the great actor CHARLES LAUGHTON ever directed— is truly a standalone masterwork. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, it stars a sublimely sinister ROBERT MITCHUM (Cape Fear, The Friends of Eddie Coyle) as a traveling preacher named Harry Powell (he of the tattooed knuckles), whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow, played by SHELLEY WINTERS (A Place in the Sun, The Diary of Anne Frank) are uncovered by her terrified young children.

Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humour, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic—also featuring the contributions of actress LILLIAN GISH (Intolerance, Duel in the Sun) and writer JAMES AGEE—is cinema's quirkiest rendering of the battle between good and evil.
