Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese brings heart-pounding suspense to one of the most acclaimed thrillers of all time.
Fourteen years after being imprisoned, vicious psychopath Max Cady (Robert De Niro) emerges with a single-minded mission: to seek revenge on his attorney Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte).
Cady becomes a terrifying presence as he menacingly circles Bowden's increasingly unstable family. Realizing he is legally powerless to protect his beautiful wife Leigh (Jessica Lange) and his troubled teenage daughter Danielle (Juliette Lewis), Sam resorts to unorthodox measures which lead to an unforgettable showdown on Cape Fear.
Visually stunning images and brilliant performances from a talented cast highlight this roller-coaster ride through relentless psychological torment.

De Niro researched sexual predator crimes for the part and suggested the scene where his character bites the victim. (more) Goofs:
Continuity: When the private eye is waiting for Cady in the house, he finally sees Teddy Bear moving, and follows the wire to the windows which (looking from inside) have closed shades. In very next shot, from outside, he is walking up to this window to close it, but there are no shades on it at all. (more) Quotes:
