Peeping Tom Unboxing

One of the most influential thrillers of all time, Michael Powell’s Peeping Tom was “one of the first – and still one of the best – cinematic journeys into the mind of a psychopath” (Empire). The chilling 1960 classic starred Carl Boehm as a sadistic killer who murders his victims under the watchful gaze of his camera lens, capturing their pure fear.

This is the definitive release of an undisputed cinema classic.

PEEPING TOM left Powell’s career in tatters and the film was made unavailable for many years. PEEPING TOM has since become recognized as a watershed in genre cinema, its themes of voyeurism and psychopathy proving hugely influential on the evolution of the slasher movie.
