      Okay. Here's my revised update: 1. Grimm's Fairy Tale meeting Edgar Allan Poe Horror Story at a German Expressionist party. 2. A hard look at the battle of good and evil. 3. Lilian Gish, Shelley Winters, and Robert Mitchum's great performances. 4. It's scary as heck! :) 5. Why didn't Charles Laughton direct any more films?

    The reason why Laughton didn't direct was because when this movie came out in 1955, it was a commercial failure and the critics were unrelenting. He was traumatized by the event and vowed off of films and returned to theatre and TV. He is like the British Version of Jean Renoir. Both had one of the greatest films ever made, but they were hated at the time. Over time, viewers began to see Night of the Hunter for what it is and not what was perceived at the time of release.
