The Night of the Hunter (Charles Laughton)

The Night of the Hunter

Charles Laughton

Few films are as haunting as this timeless masterpiece of film noir, in which twisted phoney preacher (Mitchum dripping with ghoulish menace) pursues two children amidst a dazzling stylistic interplay of shadows. Brilliant and unsettling. A clear inspiration for Adoration.
