APT Flick of the Week

Peeping Tom. 1960.

This film follows a young male serial killer who wields a video camera to record his victims' final breaths. British directorial legend Mike Powell turns the audience into voyeurs as they enter into this tale of Freudian obsession. While his film came on the heels of Hitchcock's Psycho, it certainly carves out its own niche.

Paving the way for movies like Manhunter, Gone Baby Gone, and former Faith No More frontman, Mike Patton's band...Peeping Tom (see below), this film gets the APT seal of approval.
