In this 1991 remake, Robert DeNiro portrays Max Cady an ex-con hell bent on taking revenge on the lawyer who sent him to jail fourteen years earlier. Sporting a tattooed crucifix across his back, Cady begins his reign of terror by seducing lawyer Sam Bowden's teenage daughter and brutalizing Bowden's wife and mistress. De Niro's portrait of the Pentecostal psychopath Max Cady may be one of the more terrifying in Scorsese's pantheon of American outcasts. In a nod to the original Cape Fear, Scorsese hired two leads from the 1961 production to play supporting roles. Robert Mitchum plays Lieutenant Elgart, an aging police captain, and Gregory Peck, in his last film role, portrays Max Cady's attorney Lee Heller
