Truly a great movieNight of the Hunter is probably one of the best thrillers ever created. The cast was phenomenal, the acting was great, and the suspense was amazing. This movie will bring you so far to the edge of your seat that there's a good chance you might fall off! AWESOME! And for all of you who think, "Well since it is an old movie, it shouldn't be that good!" Well you guys are wrong, because it was back in the 20th century when the best ideas were made into movies, like James Bond, Alfred Hitchcock Movies, Jurassic Park, Halloween. Today hollywood is churning out dumb ideas like Beverly Hills Chihuahua, and Shark Boy and Lava Girl, and other movies that are just pathetic remakes of the old movies. So buy this! Ok now I am done ranting..Score: 5/5

GeoThis movie is absolutely stunning. I was first introduced to it b my genius 8th grade film teacher, and the beautiful direction of CHarles Laughton combined with the brilliant acting of Robert Mitchum Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish made this one of the greatest films ever made no argument..Score: 5/5

Amazing MovieThis movie is amazing. Perfectly pieced together,with an outstanding cast it shines like a gem. The plot is well thought out and the lines are perfect to the very breath. I would definitly recommend this movie to anyone..Score: 5/5

Night of the HunterThis is one of The finest films of the era. Character development and cinematography are superb! The whole film has an creepy dream like feel. For some reason people don't review the transfer quality in these reviews. Well here's mine the HD version of this film fades between super sharp pristine to a strange grainy haze over the whole picture. I would have thought that such an iconic film would have been restored to all pristine by now. Sound is decent and about what you'd expect for the era. This is one of those timeless films that hold up well over the years. Any film collector should include this one in their library (as well as Laughton's The Big Clock), witch isn't available on itunes..Score: 5/5

Truly an amazingly wonderful filmThe Night of the Hunter is my very favorite film. I watch it at least twice a year and each time am captivated and deeply effected and moved. It's such an inventive film that really doesn't fit into any particular genre. It's innocent, terrifying, expressive and the dialogue and screen writing is phenomenal! Charles Laughton was evidently a supremely talented film director. It's sad that this film was his first and last, but I'm so grateful for this classic that he gave to the world. The wholesome honesty and truth of this movie makes me cry every time I watch it. Every aspect of the film is wonderful. The characters are insightful and their conflicts fascinating, wonderful haunting soundtrack, excellent pacing, imaginative ideas. The acting style, while to me is absolutely perfect, is very different from modern styles, so might seem over the top to some. Personally, I love this kind of super expressive, unusual film making. I own the dvd, which sadly isn't letterboxed, so it's nice to read that this downloadable version is widescreen!.Score: 5/5

Night of the HunterRobert Mitchum does a masterful job bringing the sadistic Harry Powell to life. Shelley Winters gives a realistic portrayal of the young widow lured in by Powell. The children are excellent portraying his innocent victims. Lillian Gish is a gem. Great film!.Score: 5/5

This Is The Real Deal: GeniusI couldn’t agree more with the first reviewer. However, I would add the tremendous contribution of James Agee’s adaptation of the Davis Grubb novel. Agee also wrote Let US Now Praise Famous Men about depression share croppers in the American South and Walker Evans did the photography. Many of Walker Evan’s compositions are duplicated in the cinematography. All in all, this is a tremendous work of art..Score: 5/5

"One of the scariest movies ever made"? Hardly.But I enjoyed it. Love the classic black/white thrillers. The picture quality is crystal clear and gorgeous. Worth watching. B-.Score: 4/5

Timeless! Outstanding!A character driven masterpiece. Robert Mitchum’s chilling portrayal of Harry Powell rates up there with Perkins' Norman Bates and Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecture. There isn’t a superfluous word or action, and the settings and scenery flit brilliantly between coldly terrifying and warmly hometown secure. Shelley Winters’ Willa Harper clearly emotes submission, innocence, ignorance, tragic hope and emotional and tactile starvation. James Gleason, Evelyn Varden, Don Beddoe all masterfully play neighborly and meddling characters recognizable today in any community. This movie is a must for the cinema collector..Score: 5/5

A superb film, with a superb performance by MitchumA truly unique film of superlative quality. Laughton only directed one film and achieved what most directors strive for their entire career. The performance of Robert Mitchum is simply amazing. His character is incredibly complex and riveting. He was such an underrated actor. Probably because he made it look too easy..Score: 5/5

Català
Durant la Gran Depressió un pare de família desesperat atraca un banc, matant dues persones. Tot amagant el botí, fa jurar els seus fills petits, John i Pearl, que no diran a ningú on és. Però quan el capturen, ha de compartir cel·la amb Harry Powell, un sinistre predicador que s'assabenta aleshores de l'existència dels diners. Després de l'execució del pare i un cop en llibertat, el predicador maldarà per aconseguir el botí, primer casant-se amb la infortunada vídua i després assetjant els nens.

Český
Film noir o zradě, hříchu, nevinnosti, a zejména odvěkém souboji dobra se zlem. Jeden z nejúchvatnějších padouchů filmového historie, ďábelský Harry Powell, se snaží vetřít do rodiny svého bývalého spoluvězně. Jeho děti by totiž měly vědět, kde je ukrytý lup. Když před tímto zákeřným a nemilosrdným reverendem děti prchnou, pronásleduje své malé oběti vytrvale až do velkého finále. Vizionářský film, který je také poctou němé kinematografii od Griffitha po vrcholná díla německého expresionismu, byl ve své době nepochopen a propadl u diváků i kritiky. Dnes je snímek absolutní klasikou, nechybí v prestižních žebříčcích kultovních filmů a sám se stal jedním z nejcitovanějších filmových děl.

Dansk
Pludselig en dag var han der. Han sagde, at han var præst - og at det var ham, som havde hørt Ben Harpers sidste ønsker, da han lå for døden i fængslet. Alle falder for hans charme - selv Harpers enke, som kort efter gifter sig med ham. Uden at vide det, deler hun seng med sin mands morder - en nådesløs dræber, som vil gøre hvad som helst for at finde frem til det sted, Ben Harper gemte pengene fra sit sidste kup. Men kun én sidder inde med den viden...

Deutsch
"HATE" wie "Hass" und "LOVE" für "Liebe" - Über die Bedeutung dieser Worte, über den Kampf von Gut gegen Böse, könnte Wanderprediger Powell stundenlang philosophieren. Kein Wunder: Der nach außen charmante und strenggläubige Mensch ist ein Psychopath. Um an die versteckte Beute seines ehemaligen Zellengenossen zu kommen, schleicht er sich in dessen Familie ein und schreckt auch vor Mord nicht

Συλλαμβάνεται για κλοπή αυτοκινήτου και βρισκόμενος στην φυλακή, προσπαθεί να αποσπάσει από τον καταδικασμένο σε θάνατο συγκρατούμενο του το πού έχει κρύψει ένα μεγάλο ποσό χρημάτων. Το μυστικό κρύβεται στην σύζυγο του θανατοποινίτη και στα δύο του παιδιά κι ο Πάουελ τα επισκέπτεται με τους πιο δόλιους σκοπούς.

Bruce) povjeri gdje ga je sakrio, ali i kaže da to ne odaju svojoj majci Willi (S. Winters). U zatvoru Ben dospije u ćeliju s psihički poremećenim propovjednikom Harryjem Powellom (R.

Italiano
Harry Powell, pastore protestante, uccide alcune vedove per denaro. Uccide anche Willa Harper, ma i suoi due figlioletti gli danno filo da torcere. Riescono a fuggire da lui allontanandosi sul fiume con una barca. In loro soccorso giunge una cara vecchietta, Rachel, che dà rifugio ai bambini abbandonati. Grande fiaba orrorifica, più per atmosfera che per scene violente, resa convincente da una regia secca e originale. Harry come orco, Rachel come fata e i due fratelli come Hansel e Gretel.
