Create-A-Caption: The Night of the Hunter

For this week’s Create-A-Caption, we are setting the wayback machine to 1955 to look at the suspense classic The Night of the Hunter. Charles Laughton’s only directorial effort, this harrowing film concerns two children on the run from their psychotic religious fanatic stepfather, who murdered their mother in a search for money stolen from a bank by their father. Robert Mitchum is the spellbinding “preacher” with “LOVE” and “HATE” tattooed on his knuckles; also stars Lillian Gish, Shelley Winters, Peter Graves.

We’ve taken a classic moment from the film and added our own caption, and we encourage you to do the same in the comments. Have fun!


Do you have any idea how much it hurts to get your knuckles tattooed? No wonder I’m in such a bad mood.
