...Stealthily effective....An unnerving minor classic...
Rating: 3.5/4 -- works best as a twisted nail-biter, punctuated brilliantly with an apocalyptic score by Bernard Herrmann
Q Network Film Desk
A cold-blooded, calculated build-up of sadistic menace and shivering dread is accomplished with frightening adroitness in J. Lee Thompson's melodrama Cape Fear. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 3/5 -- A tense thriller that holds your attention to the very end. The film is aided by one of Bernard Hermann's better scores.
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
Rating: B+ -- Unpleasant but suspenseful film noir. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 4/5 -- A classic revenge thriller.
Mitchum's performance is one long solo of base evil.
This good vs. evil thriller casts Mitchum as sadistic ex-con Max Cady determined to wreak revenge on the family of Sam Bowden, the good small-town lawyer who put him in jail years earlier. Stripped of legal recourse, the civilized Bowden is slowly forced to lower himself to Cady's bestial level to protect his family. Based on "The Executioners" by John D. MacDonald.
Max Cady, a wily, cruel ex-convict, is ravenous for the ruination of Sam Bowden, a Georgia laywer who eight years earlier sent Max to prison for his brutal assault of a young woman in a parking lot. Max pursues Sam and his family with psychotic diligence. With each step, Max ups the ante of terror. First, he makes himself ubiquitous, igniting a reign of psychological torment over the family. Moving in closer, he poisons the family dog simply to prove his hard-heartedness. And in a succesful attempt to enrage, Max pays Sam's pubescent daughter Nancy a little visit. Finally, the men confront one another in a Southern swampland showdown. But Sam's wholesome tenacity proves too vital a force for Max's sinister rage.
