The Night Of The Hunter must definitly be the most amazing, fantastic film I ever saw. Seriously. It inspired all the great movie directors from David Lynch to Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malik, Jim Jarmusch, the Coen brothers, Rob Zombie, Spike Lee etc.
Suspensful, sadistic, artistical, The Night Of the Hunter is defenitly a classic. The shots, the lights, the story, the actors... No movie could be more perfect than this masterpiece.

Starring: The fantastic Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish
