Atypical Serial killer Movies # 7


7 – Ten Rillington Place (Richard Fleischer, UK, 1971)


A film as overlooked as it is good, based on real-life case of Post-War British serial killer John Christie.

Blockbuster director Richard Fleischer (Soylen Green, The Vikings, Tora!Tora!Tora!) abilities when on a more restrain budget offers one of his finest film. The depiction of London, just a few year after the War, is quite effective. Richard Attenbourough (of Jurassic Park fame, for younger audiences) shows once more what a great actor he was as he renders a sympathetic looking character with high psychological complexity out of a real life killer. Watch for a young John Hurt (1984, Elephant Man, V for Vendetta) in a supporting role.
