Night Of The Hunter/Bd - Criterion Collection - Blu-Ray

In Stock, Ready to Ship!

Blu-ray. 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 humor, 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.
