Updated 14 Jun 2019 260.9k views13 items

In 1991, Martin Scorsese teamed up with Robert De Niro to make one of the most unsettling psychological thrillers of all time, Cape Fear. In the movie, De Niro turned in an intense Method performance as ex-con Max Cady, who seeks revenge on the lawyer who represented him, Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte). 

Filming Cape Fear was a challenge for Scorsese; this was the first remake the director ever made, and he struggled to film a movie with a linear storyline. As stressful as the movie was behind the scenes, Scorsese and his crew managed to create a satisfying thriller that gives audiences one of the most frightening monsters to grace the big screen.
