    One of Martin Scorsese's more accessible and thrilling films as well as a very stylish homage/remake to J. Lee Thompson's 1962 film that features cameo appearances from Robert Mitchum, Gregory Peck, and Martin Balsam while Robert de Niro gives one of his most definitive performance as the psychotic Max Cady.

    I refuse to believe this is a real movie much less directed by legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese. It's as if Scorsese wanted to test whether he could sleepwalk through a whole movie and see what turns up and what turns up is a steaming pile of trash. The film starts off with a promising premise that's riddled with cliches even down to Nick Nolte's character looking over his shoulder seeing DeNiro's ex con character and then quickly looking back with…

    My second favorite Martin Scorsese film.

    Amongst the force of nature that is Robert DeNiro's Max Cady lies the story that Scorsese is really after; the healing of a family.

    This film is Martin Scorsese at his genre defying best.  The climax of the picture is one of the very best of Scorsese's career.

    Highly recommended if you've never seen it and definitely worth a rewatch every few years if you're fan.

    I love the sort of pseudo-reality this movie exists in. Once I figured out I was watching a high-end slasher and not a thriller all the glorious over-the-topness made perfect sense. Scorsese's imagery pushed this along, but the script really drags it out unnecessarily. If it was tighter, it'd be a manic masterpiece. 

    Joe Don Baker forever.

    Amazingly paced and very entertaining.

    Started Year of the Dragon but stopped after 30 minutes and started this.

    De Niro's fantastic as always, Nick Nolte is great, Jessica Lange is amazing, Juliette Lewis is crazy. And I loved the pre-Inception shot in the boat.

    I really love this movie. Deniro kills it as the menacing lead and Scorsese is the perfect director for this. Of course, I can't watch it anymore without thinking about The Simpsons, but there you go.

    Previously watch Taxi Driver

    Robert De Niro goes from Vigilante (Taxi Driver) to a psychotic killer rapist in this psychological thriller 1991 remake starting Nick Nolte, Jessica lange and Juliette Lewis. I swear Robert De Niro is Nuts & creepy in this film He's really believable I was even getting paranoid watching this movie. I now know where The Simpsons got some of references in some of the episode that included Sideshow bob. The theme music playing though the film is so intimidating.
