Film Series: The Night of the Hunter

1955. USA. Dir: Charles Laughton. With Robert Mitchum, Lillian Gish. 92 min.

Would you trust a preacher with “LOVE” and “HATE” tattooed on his knuckles? In pursuit of hidden loot, Mitchum’s charming killer priest woos a small-town widow and menaces her children. Expressionistic cinematography and haunting lullaby music describe a twisted fairytale of Grimm proportions.
