Lawyer Sam Bowden (Gregory Peck) is horrified when Max Cady, a vicious criminal he helped incarcerate, is released from jail and returns to terrorise Bowden and his family. With little concrete proof of Cady’s malevolence and increasingly dwindling legal options, Bowden is drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse that puts everything he holds dear in peril.

THEY SAY: “A cold-blooded, calculated build-up of sadistic menace and shivering dread is accomplished with frightening adroitness” – Bosley Crowther, New York Times, 1962
WE SAY: Scorsese’s 1991 remake may be the better known version, but J. Lee Thompson’s masterpiece has lost none of its shock value. With a stellar ensemble cast and a gripping score by Bernard Herrmann, Cape Fear grips you tight and doesn’t let go until long after its infamous climax.
