The Night Of The Hunter Is A Classic Thriller That’s Held Up Well



If you’re looking to revisit a classic thriller, and see a very important piece of movie history for the first time, now is a good opportunity to do so. That’s because the classic “The Night of the Hunter” has been released as a delux edition DVD.

If you’ve never heard of it, you’re surely not alone. But know that legendary directors such as David Lynch and Martin Scorsese consider it essential. Even Spike Lee is a big fan and paid homage to the movie in his “Do The Right Thing.”

The movie, however, is certainly nothing to be taken lightly. It is a thriller or shocking proportions that really puts the scares in you big time. It follows a brother and sister who experience true horrors. It’s perfectly paced and full of tension and suspense, making it a cornerstone of the thriller genre.

In fact, Robert Mitchum‘s character would be just as horrifying today as he was back in 1955.
