Night Has Revealed


      Thick with nocturnal panic, The Night of the Hunter preys on things like our childlike fears of the dark, and the adult assertion of cruelty and persecution. Here a stolen doll becomes an emblem for innocence made absent, a riverside trek is bird-dogged by a deistic bully that further clouds the childs-eye-view of a mature terrene that has lost it's baby teeth. Will the first blush of dawn ever erase what night has revealed ?
