Fear, as it turns out, is the most frightening thing in the world, and Peeping Tom makes us feel it palpably as few films have been able to do.

People Magazine

Although seemingly about a creep who kills, it is as much about our own voyeuristic fascination with movies.

Almost forty years later, Powell's audaciousness, satirical wit and dazzling color sense still crackle with life.

Peeping Tom reminds us of the scary, primitive power of movies by putting us, as viewers, in the position of its peeping protagonist. As the psychopath sets up his victims for the kill, we see them through his eyes.

It still packs a wallop. Maybe that's because, in cinema, we're all peeping toms. And the camera, in skillful hands, can be an exquisite instrument of terror.

It's a perceptive, blackly comic masterwork.

While Hitchcock's masterpiece is unquestionably the more mainstream and formally groundbreaking of the two films, it's arguable that Peeping Tom is the more thematically profound and insightful work. Just don't expect to feel good after watching it.

Daily Express

It is a thriller that still has the ability to shock because it holds up a mirror to the impulses in all of us. Perhaps that is why so many people found it hard to stomach in 1960.

How is the film anything other than its own besotted yet savage review of cinema?

Guardian

If anything deserves the "dark masterpiece" tag, this does: a brilliant satirical insight into the neurotic, pornographic element in the act of filming, more relevant than ever in the age of reality television and CCTV.

A risk-all masterpiece from one of our greatest film-makers.

Total Film

Misplaced critical vitriol torpedoed the original 1960 release of director Michael Powell's psycho-horror. Fifty years later, it's an undisputed British masterpiece.

The primary conceit of "Peeping Tom" is to engage the audience as a voyeuristic accomplice to its anti-hero protagonist.

It's an understanding and at times even celebratory film -- attitudes that scandalized critics years ago and are still pretty potent today.

A Freudian script of notable maturity teases limitless implications from this premise, while maintaining a healthy sense of humour.

there's a constantly gorgeous surface - a handsome hero, lots of bright Technicolor - and a constant moral rot at play underneath
