Actor robert mitchum in the noir thriller night of the hunter.

Charles Laughton’s lone directorial departure, The Night of the Hunter, is one of the most chilling and haunting films ever set to celluloid. Robert Mitchum is beyond terrifying as a serial-killing preacher in the Deep South, set on hunting children in his search for fortune. With a striking Southern Gothic atmosphere and stunning black-and-white imagery that will burn itself into your brain, this is one gorgeously twisted masterpiece.
