About this movie

Fourteen years after being imprisoned, vicious psychopath Max Cady (Robert De Niro) emerges with a single-minded mission: to seek revenge on his attorney Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte). Cady becomes a terrifying presence as he menacingly circles Bowden's increasingly unstable family. Realizing he is legally powerless to protect his beautiful wife Leigh (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.

One of the best remakes of all time. Haunting story, script, and mega all star cast. This movie will thrill and haunt your mind and dreams. Look for cameos from the OG cast too!

Excellent movie. It blows my mind that the movie Fear, starring Mark Wahlberg, has a higher score than this on Google play. Ludicrous.
