Talking Pictures: Peeping Tom

A young man murders women, using a movie camera to film their dying expressions of terror.

Loner Mark Lewis (Carl Boehm) works at a film studio during the day and, at night, takes racy photographs of women. Also he's making a documentary on fear, which involves recording the reactions of victims as he murders them. He befriends Helen (Anna Massey), the daughter of the family living in the apartment below his, and he tells her vaguely about the movie he is making. She sneaks into Mark's apartment to watch it and is horrified by what she sees -- especially when Mark catches her.

Join us for a post-film discussion about this landmark film from the 1960s. With Terrance Odette and Wendy Guymer-Tutt. We'd love to hear your thoughts!


"It still packs a wallop. Maybe that's because, in cinema, we're all peeping toms. And the camera, in skillful hands, can be an exquisite instrument of terror." - Chicago Tribune

"Michael Powell's Peeping Tom is the best movie ever made about the voyeuristic allure of making and watching movies." - New York Daily News

"Powell dared to show us how close movie making can come to madness - how it can eat you up. He was telling an extremely uncomfortable truth, something that nobody wanted to know." - Martin Scorsese
