The bodies pile up as sensitive film studio focus puller Mark Lewis (Carl Boehm) moonlights as a private photographer of scantily-clad women, while obsessively working on his own "documentary" of the women's dying expressions. Director Powell's career was effectively destroyed by the critical backlash to the film.

Reviews and Quotes 2

"The quintessential Michael Powell film, at once mischievous and compassionate, ironic and evangelistic, comic and tragic. A film of visceral terror."
Film Comment

"A masterpiece full of dread, raw with vulgarity. No wonder the critics were shocked, the film was so far ahead of the game."
— David Thomson

"Peeping Tom and Fellini's 8 1/2 are the two great films that deal with the philosophy and danger of filmmaking."
— Martin Scorsese
