Krimi Quest 2020

[UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

A chronological listing of all the movies I've seen in the German Krimi cycle.

As Holger Haase points out in the intro to his ebook, THE MANY MASKS OF DR. MABUSE, the "official" Rialto adaptations of Edgar Wallace were just one strand of DNA in a genre that also included the 1960s Dr. Mabuse films, Bryan Edgar Wallace adaptations, rival Wallace adaptations (e.g., 1960's THE AVENGER), Louis Weinert-Wilton adaptations, Jerry Cotton, and Kommissar X.

Personally, I also think it makes a lot of sense to include some of the other Krimi-adjacent flicks made by Harry Alan Towers, the Fu Manchu cycle, and various German thrillers made by German directors outside of Rialto, but still very much kin to…
