M (1931)

Regarded by many as one of the greatest films of all time and described ‘The Blue Print for the Serial Killer Movie‘ M screens as part of ‘A Criminally Good Day’ for this years Essex Book Festival

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.


‘Renonwned for its striking imagery and inventive use of sound, M can now be enjoyed in a pin-sharp new restoration. For once, such words as ‘seminal’, ‘unmissable’ and ‘masterpiece’ are not just hype.’
– Margaret Deriaz
