MonsterGirls’ Fiend of The Day! Harry Powell Night of The Hunter 1955

The gritty and uniquely sexy Robert Mitchum brings to life the terrifying role of psychopathic religious fanatic Harry Powell in Night of The Hunter 1955. Co starring Shelley Winters as the widow whose children refuse to tell Harry where their real father’s hidden money is. Also starring the wonderful Lillian Gish. Scripted by James Agee.

Directed by the great Charles Laughton, it was his only film, yet is it one of the most memorable, suspenseful, elegantly simple and grim masterpieces of American cinema to date.

“The wedding night, the anticipation, the kiss, the knife, BUT ABOVE ALL… THE SUSPENSE!”
