Pinhole Movie Reviews

Night of the Hunter by Thomas

Robert Mitchum is a deranged con man who breezes into town, marries the local hysterical widow, and terrorizes her children — all to get at the loot that their dead daddy has hidden.  Mitchum is wonderfully odd and full of evangelical furor, and the film itself is filled with surprisingly bizarre staging and cinematography.  Like any old movie, there is a fair amount of quaint-ness…but Mitchum’s evil preacher character makes you squirm despite that.  Worth watching.
