Cape Fear (1962)

Nobody’s innocent.

Gregory Peck, the very figure of moral rectitude during his movie career, makes some questionable choices in a bid to protect his family from evil which lingers just outside the house.

And that evil is brought to vivid life by a drawling, leering Robert Mitchum, so you know his character is a slime-encrusted badass from way back.

Director J. Lee Thompson, working from a novel by pulp heavyweight John D. MacDonald, sets his two titans at war, and the fury unleashed is something to see.

It’s a boat ride into the middle of a nightmare, baby!
