Description by

Hidden among the ominous shadows of the dark, narrow streets of London, a monstrous man with glazed white eyes waits for his next victim. An elderly gentleman stumbling through the fog crosses the creature's path and is carried off by the fiend. Later fished out of the Thames, the victim is the latest in a series of strange deaths in which wealthy foreigners are found drowned on foggy nights - all the owners of large insurance policies. Inspector Holt of Scotland Yard suspects the deaths are actually brutal, calculated murders. The evidence points to a notorious band of madmen known as "The Blind Killers of London," a group hell-bent on collecting the insurance policy payoffs of their victims.

Based on a novel by legendary crime writer Edgar Wallace, The Dead Eyes of London stars the internationally-renowned Klaus Kinski and German character actor Joachim Fuchsberger. This atmospheric chiller is directed by Alfred Vohrer and is a suspenseful remake of Bela Lugosi's horror classic, The Human Monster (1939). Vohrer, no stranger to Edgar Wallace mysteries, created several other films in the "krimi" genre including The Gorilla of Soho, The Door with Seven Locks, The Squeaker and The Mysterious Magician.

German, dubbed in English.

An Eerie,Damp And Foggy Escape In The Holmesian Style! Movie Lover: from Baltimore, MD US -- April, 27, 2004

Joachim Fuchsberger does a fine believable job playing the smart and handsome Scotland Yard Inspector Larry Holt. Klaus Kinski plays a minor but ruthless heavy. Karen Baal plays Nora Ward the Inspectors love interest and Eddi Arent plays the inspectors eccentric sidekick with a penchant for knitting.

This is a great Edgar Wallace story full of foggy nights and damp cobblestones.
Although the film takes place in 1961, the atmosphere and scenery could be straight out of Holmes?s London. ( I must admit that the premise of a group of blind men forming a gan and killing wealthy old men on foggy nights is a little far-fetched) but this does not keep this film from being enjoyable.

Director Alfred Vohrer does a more than capable job with eerie lighting and good camera shots. This story is only enhanced by being filmed in B/W.

The solution of the crime is good and quite surprising and caught me somewhat off guard. (Well I had it half solved anyway!).

This is a nice clear copy! No frame skipping or streaks. The sound is fine but I must admit that the voice dub-over was a little troublesome for about the first five minutes but as the story progresses it becomes virtually unnoticeable.

I would highly recommend this movie to any fan of the Horror/Mystery genre!

If you like this movie? I would also recommend another recent Alpha Video release. The Phantom of Soho. Written by the authors son Bryan Edgar Wallace!
