Peeping Tom tells the story of Mark Lewis, whose passion for photography is gruesomely linked to the murders of several young women. Peeping Tom has much in common with Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho: both films were released in the summer of 1960, both are clever psychological portraits of creepy young men, and both play with the expectations of their audiences.
