General information

Rated 4 out of 5

“Cape Fear” is a 1962 thriller film directed by J. Lee Thompson and starring Gregory Peck, Robert Mitchum, and Polly Bergen. The film is based on the novel “The Executioners” by John D. MacDonald and tells the story of a lawyer whose family is threatened by a vengeful ex-convict.

The movie starts with the release of Max Cady (Robert Mitchum) from prison after serving a sentence for rape. He blames his former defense attorney, Sam Bowden (Gregory Peck), for his imprisonment and sets out to seek revenge on him and his family. Cady stalks Bowden and his family, terrorizing them in various ways, including threatening Bowden’s teenage daughter and seducing his wife.

The tension in the movie is palpable as Cady becomes increasingly unhinged and dangerous. Mitchum gives an outstanding performance as the villainous Cady, and Peck is equally impressive as the tormented Bowden. The supporting cast also does an excellent job, with Polly Bergen playing Bowden’s wife and Lori Martin playing his daughter.

The movie’s cinematography and direction are also noteworthy, with Thompson expertly building suspense throughout the film. The score by Bernard Herrmann adds to the tension and atmosphere, heightening the film’s impact.

Overall, “Cape Fear” is a classic thriller that still holds up today. It’s a tense, gripping film that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats, and the performances by the cast are exceptional. If you’re a fan of suspenseful movies, “Cape Fear” is a must-see.
