Synopsis

The Night of the Hunter features one of the all-time great villains in the terrible form of Harry Powell - an ex-con disguised as a preacher, with the words "Love" and "Hate" tattooed on his knuckles. Serving time in prison, Powell has learned of a stash of money hidden by his cellmate - the location known only to that cellmate's young children. So when Powell is released, he tracks the kids down in the hope of making them spill the secret. But sensing that he is not all he seems, the children flee - and what results is a darkly brilliant tale of ever-present danger.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
