Default Cape Fear (1991) - October 18



Cape Fear Blu-ray

Cape Fear Blu-ray Review


According to dvdempire looks like the Scorsese version of Cape Fear is coming October 18. Should be a great looking transfer, not only is Scorsese one of the best filmmakers ever but one of the industries foremost experts about film restoration.

I will buy this one only if the A/V presentation is well done. It never looked great on VHS or DVD so I am hoping it was remastered for BD.

I don't own it on any format, and have never seen it (), so this should be a day oner for me. As long as the PQ is a 3.5/5 or better.

Day one pickup for me. DeNiro was so badass in this.

Almost positive it's going to look like any other Universal catalogue title.

Love the film, but it needs to be remastered.

It would also be nice to get the older version as well. Both excellent movies. Great October release though.

For me, this is a case where the original was far better than the remake. You can't beat the tension between Gregory Peck and Robert Mitchum. The film was tense, subtle and frightening. The remake pushed everything too hard and fell short because of it

This. The remake was ok, but Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck are far superior. Robert Mitchum does evil so well! I loved him in this and NotH.

Day 1 for me! DeNiro tried to convince Harrison Ford to play the Nick Nolte role but balked. Ford wanted to play the Max Cady part. What an idiot! He went on to do REGARDING HENRY that year instead. Good Lord!

Hey Banned User -- cool avatar!
i think it all boils down to how big of a fan you are of Scorsese's, meaning, Scorsese's brilliant film style. Cape Fear is arguably his most stylistic picture, full of his trademark rapid-fire editing and camera movements. the remake isn't one of his flawless perfections, as his style does exceed the substance of the film, and the movie itself becomes too over the top by the climax, but even with flaws considering, i find the remake extremely entertaining with much more replay value than the original.

i've been waiting for this release for a long time, and cannot wait to incorporate it into my collection.

This is one of the few remakes that actually stands up rather well to the original. However, the two films are very different.

This would make an excellent addition to any collection.

+1.

It would seem like a no-brainer to release both movies the same day, or include the old one in a second disc as a great extra. But similar opportunities have been missed before so I won't hold my breath.

I have to agree with you and not just because you complimented my avatar. Although that is a large part of it. By the way the Avatar is from a excellent silent film in case you didn't already know. Vampyre.

I'm just a huge fan of anything Mitchum does. The original doesn't have a lot of the detailed violence and perversion as the remake. Its understandable considering the time the original was made. Most everything is implied and not specifically shown, but Mitchum and Peck do a magnificant job and carry the movie. Add in some well crafted suspense and some beautiful black & white film noir cinematography and you have the very definition of a classic. Not to mention Bernard Hermann's haunting score. Huge fan of Hermann as well.

Which is fully present in the remake (super smart move on Scorcese's part), so can't knock the '91 version (which I personally prefer specifically because it's more depraved and baroque and doesn't pull any punches--rare to see DeNiro do a "Pacino") for that.
