The October 30, 2005 edition of the comic strip "Frank and Ernest" started with Frank saying that the printing press was down and they would have to do all the posters for the Bijoux's double bill by hand. Frank, of course, assigned himself the poster for "M", and assigned Ernest the poster for Marat/Sade (1967) with the full title written out. See more »

This movie is definitely one of the scariest movies I've ever seen. It's about this childlike, pity evoking man (brilliantly played by Peter Lorre), who also happens to be a psychotic child killer. The city in which he lives is, of course, panicked by the mysterious child-killings, and both the criminals and the police starts to haunt the man down. I won't reveal more then this, but I will say this: Just because it's an old movie, don't let your guard down. This movie is one of those rare movies, which are so good that you'll never forget them.
