Offbeat (AKA The Devil Inside in the U.S.) is a 1961 black-and-white British crime film directed by Cliff Owen and starring William Sylvester, Mai Zetterling, and John Meillon.[1] In the film, an MI5 officer goes undercover to catch a criminal gang.


Critical reception[edit]

TV Guide gave the film 2.5 out of four stars, calling it a "good programmer" ;[2] and Mystery File wrote, "after a slow beginning, I’d have to say that halfway into the film if not earlier, I was hooked to the screen, waiting for the answer. A minor film, to be sure, but recommended, definitely so."[3]
