    Robert Mitchum at his finest.....Even though the remake was a huge success, the original is still my personal favorite. A nail-biting, keep you on the edge of your seat film. They just don't make them like this anymore and haven't for years in my opinion.

  • Mitchum....scary!

    This 1962 version is vastly superior to the 1991 remake...Why? because of Robert Mitchum. Mitchum was a very underrated actor, but in this movie he's not acting scary, he IS scary! I find it hard to believe that he was not nominated for an Academy Award for this role. In fact, he only received one nomination in his entire career! That, in my opinion was criminal. Well, the only critics who mattered were and are the public. Thanks, for a great body of work Mr. Mitchum.

    The cast is amazing in this outstanding thriller. Robert Mitchum is at his best and gives one of his finest performances. It is better than the 1991 remake. Great suspense, well edited, great score. It is never slow moving, Excellent.

    Robert Mitchum really keeps this film rolling as he starts a war of nerves with Gregory Peck and his family. There is no telling what he will do with the suspense building day by day. This is one thriller you can't leave halfway into the film as Mitchum gets you into his grips with every move he makes, paralizes and torments your sences. They did a remake with Robert DeNiro in the '90's, so it proves the 1962 version was a huge hit.
