Martin Scorse took on the challenege of remaking Cape Fear in 1991. Robert DeNiro is frighteningly menacing and seductive as Max Cady the ex-con out for revenge who Robert Mitchem immortalized. Nick Nolte holds his own as the attorney. Cady is threatening but it's a teenage Juliette Lewis who steals the show as the object of Cady's creepy obsession.
Many critics say that it is one of the best psychological thrillers of all time.
