In the second ‘Sissi Antitdote’ we screen a 1960 British thriller directed by Michael Powell and written by the WWII cryptographer and polymath Leo Marks. ‘Sissi’ star Karlheinz Böhm plays a serial killer who murders women while using a portable movie camera to record their dying expressions of terror.

The film’s controversial subject and the extremely harsh reception by critics effectively destroyed Powell’s and Böhm’s careers. However, it attracted a cult following, and in later years, has been re-evaluated.
