Scorsese's stunning remake of the 1962 original leaves Silence of the Lambs pallid by comparison. De Niro is terrifying as white trash psycho Max Cady, out of prison and stalking the family of the lawyer who suppressed evidence to put him away. Disturbing sexual undertones, centred on 15-year-old Danny (Lewis), make this an even more uncomfortable, but unmissable, top-notch scare-fest.
