The Night of the Hunter

Photos from The Night of the Hunter – Charles Laughton, 1955. A rare unsettling film from the 1950s. Laughton, directing for the first and only time, creates a world steeped in sharp shadows reminiscent of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919). Robert Mitchum delivers a truly chilling performance as the murderous priest Harry Powell. Do I really need to say more than “murderous priest?” An overlooked classic.
