The Dead Eyes of London (German: Die toten Augen von London and also known as Dark Eyes of London) is a 1961 West German crime film directed by Alfred Vohrer and starring Joachim Fuchsberger, Karin Baal and Dieter Borsche. It is based on the 1924 novel The Dark Eyes of London by Edgar Wallace which had been previously adapted into the 1939 British film The Dark Eyes of London, aka The Human Monster, introducing a number of horror elements which had not been in the original book. The British film had been released in Germany and proved popular. The German film is closer to being a remake of the earlier British film rather than a close adaptation of Wallace's novel.
