The film began a longtime collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro that reached a pinnacle in the 1980 film Raging Bull.

The ’Burbs (Joe Dante, 1989) Starring Tom Hanks as everyman Ray Peterson, The ’Burbs tells the story of a neighborhood whose fences are just not tall enough. After a suspiciously creepy family moves in down the block, the neighbors can’t help but speculate wildly about the newcomers’ intent, which escalates into total suburbanite anarchy. Produced by another of Corman’s proteges, Ron Howard, and costarring Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, and a young Corey Feldman, The ’Burbs is a gothic comedy about the all-American suburban way of life.
