PEEPING TOM is a British thriller, made in 1959, about a voyeuristic film-maker and photographer who has been so traumatised by events in his childhood that he now enjoys terrorising and killing women.

Violence

A series of murders are implied through the sound of women's screams, although blood and violent detail is not shown.

Threat

The killer toys with his victims prior to killing them, and is shown to derive sexual excitement from his actions. No sexual activity is shown to occur.

Brief topless and buttock nudity is shown across an array of pin-up posters and magazines in a newsagent shop.
