Cape FearIn this week’s episode, we follow up our screening of the original Cape Fear with Martin Scorsese’s 1991 remake!

We highly recommend you watch the film before listening to the episode, because DeNiro’s appetite for scenery chewing must be witnessed. This film can currently be seen streaming on Netflix, Vudu, Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, Google Play… just about anywhere.

Please join us again on December 21st for a far more cheerful film, the ever-delightful Thin Man!
