Both movies have a similar lead character: a young man, insecure because of the controlling nature of a now deceased parent, murders as a means of coping with life. Really freaky stuff.
The similarities between Psycho and Peeping Tom end when discussing the murders. The murders in Psycho are bloody but subdued. Those in Peeping Tom are bound to spook you since they're shown through the killer's eyes. That, and a heightened sense of perversion for what happens after the murders.
Oh man, Peeping Tom is really freaky. Definitely not for the easily spooked. It's really for those who weren't scared by Psycho. Am I one of those people? Nuh uh, but I was very spooked by Peeping Tom.
My Rating: *****
