Sam Bowden is a lawyer living in North Carolina with his wife Leigh and teenage daughter Danielle. Max Cady, a former client of his, is released from prison after 14 years. Cady was tried for statutory rape and battery of a 16-year-old girl and, appalled by the attack, Sam buried evidence of the victim’s promiscuity and Cady’s unawareness of her actual age, which might have lightened Cady’s sentence or even secured his acquittal. Bowden believes that Cady, who was illiterate at the time of his conviction, remains unaware of his purposefully botched defense. Unbeknownst to him, however, his former client is a naturally intelligent and single-minded psychopath; he learned how to read and studied law in prison, and even unsuccessfully appealed his own conviction several times.

He tracks Sam down and begins to terrorize the Bowden family; he lurks near the property and the family dog is mysteriously killed. Sam attempts to have Cady arrested but the police have no evidence of a crime. After intentionally crossing paths with her in a bar, Cady rapes and beats County Courthouse clerk Lori nearly to death, who is in love with Sam. Despite Sam’s advice, she refuses to press charges out of fear that their ongoing platonic flirtation become public, as well as unwillingness to be cross-examined and humiliated by her own colleagues. Sam hires a private investigator, Kersek, to follow Cady. Cady approaches Danielle by impersonating her new drama teacher and feigning an unorthodox interest in her teenage angst. He lures her to the school theater, shares a joint with her, manipulates her libido and attraction to him and kisses her. Her parents find the joint in her schoolbook, and Danielle’s coyness about the extent of Cady’s seduction drives Sam to the point of desperation.
