About the film:

Martin Scorsese brings his cinematic prowess to a genre that he has always loved—suspense. His interpretation of the 1962 Gregory Peck-Robert Mitchum classic, Cape Fear (1991) features a terrifying central performance by Robert De Niro and a star-making turn from Juliette Lewis, both actors, nominated for Academy Awards for their performances.

“an essential work by one of our masters”

—Vincent Camby, New York Times

Vicious psychopath Max Cady (De Niro) has returned to exact his revenge. Fourteen years have passed since attorney Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte) failed to keep him out of prison. There, his body hardened, and his hate forged into iron resolve. Now, he vows that Bowden will “learn something about loss.” And whatever move Bowden makes to save himself and his family only serves to entangle them further in Cady’s web of terror.
