Overview

In this classic German thriller, Hans Beckert, a serial killer who preys on children, becomes the focus of a massive Berlin police manhunt. Beckert’s heinous crimes are so repellant and disruptive to city life that he is even targeted by others in the seedy underworld network. With both cops and criminals in pursuit, the murderer soon realizes that people are on his trail, sending him into a tense, panicked attempt to escape justice.

Viewing Notes

M (1931) is another one of those that keep alluding me (ok, fine. I have it on DVD). Some chatter on twitter (and it being on NWI) got me to finally watch it. Creepy and great as everyone says.
