Ein psychopathischer Kameramann fotografiert die Angst junger Mädchen, bevor er sie, mit einem im Stativ eingebauten Messer, ermordet. Doppelbödiger Thriller, der zu seiner Entstehungszeit einen Skandal auslöste und die Karrieren von Karlheinz Böhm und Regisseur Powell schlagartig beendete. Rückblickend gesehen ein erstaunlich moderner Film über den Zusammenhang von Schaulust, Todessehnsucht und sexueller Neurose. (Neuer Titel: "Peeping Tom"). (www.filmevona-z.de)
