The Night Of The Hunter
CRITICS OF "The Night Of The Hunter"
Matt Brunson

April 18, 2014

A unique blend of fractured fairy tale, Southern gothic grisliness and striking German expressionism, it also has some pitch-black humor thrown in for good measure.
Dave Kehr

August 28, 2007

Ultimately the source of its style and power is mysterious -- it is a film without precedents, and without any real equals
Tim Brayton

December 04, 2016

A magnificent example of a movie doing what movies do best: capturing emotions on film and presenting a feverish, imaginative state with the tactile quality of the real.
Graham Young

October 10, 2014

A classic that is beautifully restored to life, successfully mixing lightness and humour in a dark film that would even have Frankenstein's monster running for cover.
Wendy Ide

October 05, 2015

It's overwrought and lurid; the story is grotesque and so are the characters. It's unlike anything else before and since. And that is why this strident psychological horror stands up now as one of the great pieces of American genre cinema.
Michael Wilmington

One of the great movie horror tales, with one of the greatest of all movie villains.
Bosley Crowther

March 25, 2006

All this has been crisply compacted into clear screen drama by the late James Agee and it is put forth under the direction of Mr. Laughton in stark, rigid visual terms.
David Sterritt

October 14, 2014

Mitchum gives one of cinema's greatest performances as a demented man who's one part preacher, one part murderer, and totally determined to track down a stash of stolen loot in the possession of two kids.
Variety Staff

August 28, 2007

This start for Gregory as producer and Laughton as director is rich in promise but the completed product, bewitching at times, loses sustained drive via too many offbeat touches that have a misty effect.
Josh Larsen

October 28, 2014

Mitchum is a dreamily terrifying presence, partly because he's filmed in menacing silhouette a good quarter of the time.
Tom Huddleston

January 26, 2006

It's the most haunted and dreamlike of all American films, a gothic backwoods ramble with the Devil at its heels.
