Night of the Hunter

Friday October 20

Directed by Charles Laughton

Charles Laughton’s sole directorial effort is a child’s-eye parable of good versus evil. Robert Mitchum is iconically sinister as the charlatan preacher who visits violence upon a widow (Shelley Winters) and her two children, whom he believes are concealing a stash of stolen money. A frightening fairy tale writ in expressionist chiaroscuro, Night of the Hunter is a masterpiece of almost folkloric power. – BAM

1955 | 14A | 1h 32 min.

Nightmare on Dundas Street Movie Nights are presented in conjunction with Guillermo del Toro: At Home With Monsters.
