    Synopsis


    Raising Cain
    A complicated thriller, directed with great visual style by Brian De Palma, Raising Cain is the story of twin brothers, Carter and Josh (John Lithgow), one good and one evil, who will stop at nothing to find children to further their father's psychological experiments. John Lithgow is outstanding in the role of the brothers. Lolita Davidovich, is also good as his wife Jenny, who he may or may not have murdered. To even identify the other characters would give away too much of the complicated plot, which twists and turns, leaving the audience constantly guessing who is really who. The film is darkly comic and De Palma and his unusual plot devices play homage to Alfred Hitchcock, along with Orson Welles and Michael Powell's Peeping Tom. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      The original version still stand up and holds well to me. I still enjoyed it and loved how the story shifts into gear right off the bat. The so called "Director's Cut" is no director's cut. It's a re-cut by a fan of the movie who wanted to kiss Brian DePalma's a%&. DePalma did intend for this version to be released and did approve it but, chickened out at the last minute cause the beginning is SOOOO slow and BORING! Long story short: There is NO new footage. There is NO alternate footage. It is the EXACT same footage from front to back but with a different order. The first 40 minutes was all the cheating wife and her story. The new so called "Director's Cut" is basically an homage to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. If you were to watch the director's cut and psycho side by side, you'd see what I mean. Just like Psycho it starts with one story then changes lanes at the 40 minute mark. The only difference is in Psycho, that first 40 minutes is enjoyable. Raising Rain's Director's Cut is not. I understood it perfectly. The dreams and the flashbacks, but I just didn't care. I surprisingly enjoyed the theatrical version far more. So if you don't like one the D.C then you'll still love the original like I did.

      this includes two cuts of the film. the theatrical and a new director's cut. the director's cut makes the movie take place more chronologically. it makes more sense. the theatrical jumps back and forth causing a bit more confusion than needed imo. the video quality is not quite as good as i hoped but it's decent.

      John Lithgow really shows his acting chops in this psychological thriller! A human is 10 times more frightening than an animal or monster in a movie. His facial expressions say it all! This movie has been one of my favorites for years!

      One of the depalma’s underrated films. John Lithgow is amazing/creepy and the special features on the shout factory collectors addition of raising cane are fantastic. Very interesting background stories.

      This is a weird one, but it has all of the trademark De Palma flourishes. If you're a fan of the director and haven't seen how Cain was raised, definitely add this one to your collection.

      One of the most underrated movies that DePalma has directed. Both cuts are great and the extras are very interesting.
