Storyline

Anna and her slacker boyfriend go to work for the creepy, reclusive Joseph Rorret, who's just opened a movie theater that plays only classic English-language thrillers. Rorret obsessively spies on the audiences in his theater, savoring the fearful reactions of pretty women, then later tracking them down, dating and murdering them. As Anna fearfully investigates his sinister doings, one of Rorret's intended victims turns out to be a little stranger even than him.... Written by Anne Sharp <sharpa@lcm.macomb.lib.mi.us>

Subtle Italian homage to "Psycho" and "Peeping Tom".
20 January 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Joseph Rorret opens a movie theater called Peeping Tom which only plays murder mysteries and black and white thrillers.Anna and her boyfriend work for mysterious and elusive Rorret.Rorret obsessively spies on his female audience during the séances.Later he tracks down his pretty female victims,dates them and finally strangles them.Curious Anna starts investigating Rorret."Rorret" plays like a homage to "Psycho","Peeping Tom" and "Bunny Lake Is Missing".It's an elegant and well-acted drama/thriller,but it lacks exciting thrills and sleaze of many 70's and early 80's gialli.The killings are non-graphic and the action is slow."Rorret" reminded me a little bit Vernon Zimmermann's "Fade to Black" and Larry Cohen's "Special Effects".6 thriller death scenes out of 10.
