LOOKS LIKE A GOOD SET, PEEPING TOM IS ONE OF THE BEST HORROR FILMS EVER SO YOU HAD ME SOLD AT MICHAEL POWELL.

>HAD ME SOLD AT MICHAEL POWELL.

Powell's name has me sold as well (the always amazing James Mason doesn't hurt either.) But yeah, Peeping Tom is sooooo good, Black Narcissus is one of my favorite films ever, but what would you expect from Karswell with a psycho nun on the loose film? The Red Shoes is fab too.

All of Powell's films (and his collborations with Emeric Pressburger) should be added to your queue if you call yourself a serious film fan and have not already viewed these haunting masterpieces.

This sounds like it is the kinda thing we like here at the Phibes household. I should have picked it up when I was buying Freakazoid today!
