Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "Cape Fear" (1962)

After a couple of weeks off, the blu-ray releases are back in force, with 1962's classic Cape Fear the best today's bunch has to offer. For my money, this was a way better film than the 1991 Scorsese-directed version, with Robert Mitchum as a truly scary, sadistic psychopath stalking Gregory Peck and his family. Where Robert DeNiro tore up the scenery, Mitchum was calm, cool, collected and quietly terrifying. A villain for the ages in an era before there was such a thing as restraining orders.
