Lang followed with the belated but highly acclaimed sequel ''[[Film/DasTestamentDesDoktorMabuse The Testament of Doctor Mabuse]]'' in 1933, and the less well-regarded ''[[Film/Die1000AugenDesDrMabuse The Thousand Eyes of Doctor Mabuse]]'' in 1960. A series of inferior films was spun off from there in the 1960's and 70's, and a new Mabuse film is listed as "in development" on the IMDb.
