Paul and Corey Cross the Streams: Season 6, Episode 9 [‘The Night of the Hunter’ (1955)]

Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content. It’s the Great American Podcast where two friends learn about life as they float down the river of streaming services.

Having amassed more than 100 episodes in its run, PACCTS’ sixth season will focus its sights on “the greatest films of all time” (both in the US and internationally), as assembled by the British Film Institute’s 2022 Sight and Sound Poll of industry critics. Corey will be choosing American films from the list, and Paul will be choosing international ones. 

Our goal is to examine the films that are considered great, and why that may be the case.  

Ranked at 25, Charles Laughton’s first and only(!) directorial feature, The Night of the Hunter (1955). The film was so ahead of its time, critics and audiences could not wrap their heads around its blending of genres, style, and themes. The Night of the Hunter has become a true American classic, influencing countless filmmakers.
