We said “often lost in Martin Scorsese’s rich and varied filmography, the masterfully directed Cape Fear is a compelling exercise in relentless cinematic tension” and you can read our full review here.
We took a look at the wonderful new edition of the film on Blu-ray…
Master filmmaker Martin Scorcese brings heart-pounding suspense to one of the most acclaimed thrillers of all time. Fourteen years after being imprisoned, vicious psychopath Max Cady (OSCAR Winner Robert De Niro) emerges with a single-minded miission: to seek revenge on his attorney Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte). Cady becomes a terrifying presence as he menacingly circles Bowden’s increasingly unstable family. Realising he is legally powerless to protect his beautiful wife Leigh (OSCAR Winner Jessica Lange) and his troubled teenage daughter Danielle (Juliette Lewis), Sam resorts to unorthodox measures which lead to an unforgettable showdown on Cape Fear. Visually stunning images and brilliant performances from a talented cast highlight this roller-coaster ride through relentless psychological torment.
