Following a six-year jail sentence for a sadistic sex crime, Max Cady (Mitchum) arrives in a small Southern town to seek revenge on the man responsible for his conviction, Sam Bowden. He begins stalking and harassing Bowden's wife and daughter. As his campaign of terror increases Bowden devises a plan to entrap him. While Mitchum's twisted preacher in 'The Night of the Hunter' is a more complex and subtly created character, his swaggering presence in this film has a menacing authority.
