Episode 413: M (1931)

Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Deighan, Jamey Duvall

Fritz Lang's M (1931) is the story of a child murderer (Peter Lorre) in Berlin during the last years of the Weimar Republic. When the police fail to capture the terror of Berlin it's up to the criminal underworld to do the job.

Movie Geeks United's Jamey Duvall and Daughter of Darkness's Samm Deighan (author of the new Devil's Advocates book on M) discuss the original film, Joseph Losey's tepid remake and the impact of M on serial killer films overall.

  1. Good eye for the fancy cigarette holder - the details of the characters accessories was one thing that stood out to me the first time I saw M. An interesting contrast in making a taught film such as this during a time of so much unrest and uncertainty in post WW I Germany.
