Robert De Niro plays Max Cady, an illiterate criminal who has been imprisoned for eight years on rape and battery charges. Nick Nolte plays Sam Bowden, Cady’s lawyer who intentionally buried a valuable document, which may have allowed Cady’s prison sentence to be significantly shorter. Cady learns to read while in prison. He starts with `See Spot Run,’ then proceeds to study law books. Cady’s rage and desire for revenge grows with each additional day that he is in prison. Although Cady’s original prison sentence was only eight years, it is increased to fourteen years due to battery of another inmate. He memorizes the Bible and tattoos his body with scripture referring to vengeance. When Cady is finally released from prison, he immediately seeks out Bowden and his family. Cady has become a scripture slinging psychopath hell bent on revenge.
