Peeping Tom ,Dick ,Harry ,& Alfred K.
- Larry Welk
This movie was like a not so veiled reference to the father of the 'toy of sex' - a precursor to the more systematic trauma laced mind control- Alfred Kinsey!
No suspense, we know who the killer is from the OPENING sequence. Boring lead actor, boring victims (except lively Shearer) make a C movie. There is no peeping, no fighting, just spearing ladies in the neck with a ridiculous lance stuck onto a camera tripod. Victims just stood there wide eyed seemingly so fearful they were unable to move. If this had been made by Hitchcock or DePalma it could have been interesting. I can understand the controversy because the film seems to be voyeuristic and sympathic to the psycho. Even the colors are sickly.
Cure For a Peeping Tom
This is one crummy film - not because of the subject matter, but because the characters were so unlikable. I had no interest in Boehm and felt zero sympathy for him because of his screwed-up childhood. I was glad he killed all of those women because I didn't like them either. The only hope I had for the film was dashed because Boehm didn't kill Massey who was the most annoying of them all. I do however feel bad for Powell because one bad film (even this one) shouldn't end a career.
Peeping Tom (1960)
- James Higgins
What a fascinating and interesting film. So very unique, it follows a serial killer who likes to film his victims when dying. Expert direction from Michael Powell, great cast, creative cinematography. A unique and must see film. The score is superb, wonderfully edited. This was extremely controversial in 1960, and is still rather racy even today. Well acted, and great use of light.
