Both films contains examples of: Edit

  • Complete Monster: Max Cady, especially in the original. De Niro is Ax Crazy, but he doesn't have that same quiet menace that Mitchum does.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Robert Mitchum and Robert De Niro. So, yes.

1962 film: Edit

  • Complete Monster: Max Cady as played by Robert Mitchum is so far ahead of his time that he is utterly terrifying because he had absolutely no redeeming qualities.

  Cady: Speakin' about your wife and kid, I got a little caper planned for them...I got something planned for your wife and kid that they ain't never gonna forget.

1991 film: Edit

  • Genius Bonus: How many viewers were able to understand all of Cady's literary references, especially those to The Divine Comedy?
  • Narm:
    • Try and tell me that you didn't laugh when Sam slipped in Kersek’s blood. The fact that his wife also slipped trying to help him only made it worse.
    • When Cady drowns at the end, he begins screaming gibberish that mostly sounds like “bloh de blah”
