Scorsese's unflinching remake of the seminal 1962 revenge chiller sees Robert De Niro (who else? ) fill Robert Mitchum's villainous shoes as convicted psycho Max Cady. Released from prison, Cady launches a terrifying vendetta against lawyer Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte), the man who failed to keep him on the streets. Horribly compelling throughout, Scorsese ramps up the dread and sexual tension as Cady makes it even more personal with Bowden's wife (Jessica Lange) and teenage daughter (Juliette Lewis). Nice touch to have original stars Mitchum and Gregory Peck reverse their good/bad personas in cameo, though.
