  • Peeping Tom

    Much criticised at the time of its release, Michael Powell’s psychological study of a shy camera technician who films for his home movies the death throes of the women he kills is now widely regarded as a dark classic. Less a straightforward serial-killer thriller than a Freudian meditation on ho...

  • Daleks' Invasion Earth 2150 A.D.

    Those deadly plunger-wigglers the Daleks have taken over planet Earth in this full colour psychedelic sequel to Dr Who and the Daleks.
