The Night of the Hunter (1955)

The Night of the Hunter (1955) by Charles Laughton

This Halloween we’ll be watching The Night of the Hunter from 1955. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, Robert Mitchum stars as the unforgettable psychopathic preacher (with LOVE and HATE tattooed on his knuckles) in this 1930s story of salvation for the souls of innocent children, and where Mitchum is in relentless pursuit of two children, who have their dead father’s stolen fortune hidden in a doll.
