100 Word Movie Review: Night of the Hunter

tumblr_inline_mum5mflSj31qzn3qe

Night of the Hunter (Dir: Charles Laughton) is a great film. Its main story (bank robber hides loot before he dies) is set up quickly, as if the writer/director didn’t want to take any time away from Robert Mitchum’s wily machinations as he searches for the loot on a widow’s property. Mitchum is terrifying as the sonorous voiced preacher/serial killer, terrorising the widow’s children, the only people who know the money’s location.

An excellent film full of jarring, incredible images: Mitchum’s Love/Hate tattoos, the rider on the hill and a pitiful murder victim sat at the bottom of the lake.
