Movie Review.. sorta' Peeping Tom (1960)

Yo Nix, can you remember seeing this movie?
“Peeping Tom”
a British “Psycho” type movie from 1960.

Now here’s a Classic!
If you have not watched it, or remember watching it, go to Amazon (using this link) to read about it.

It did not strike me how groundbreaking a thriller/horror movie it was until I started in on the “making of” bonus section at the end of the DVD.

Damn sure was a groundbreaking movie, including that it was the first time that a nipple was seen on screen in British theater. (And they were nice, if too brief)

If you have not seen it you MUST, I think you will add it to your collection, for it’s historical value as well as its mind twising plot line.
8.2 outta 10. (and I ain;t seen a 10 yet)

What's most interesting is that this film killed the career of the director. It was attacked by critics and deemed immoral and obscene. Great little flick that most people have never heard of.

Nix says: Now, if Hitchcock had directed it, it would be claimed a classic!
