Directed by Richard Fleischer • 1971 • United Kingdom
Starring Richard Attenborough, Judy Geeson, John Hurt
Based on Ludovic Kennedy’s investigative book, this is the true and horrifying story of British mass murderer John Christie, chillingly played by Richard Attenborough. When Timothy (John Hurt) and Beryl Evans (Judy Geeson) move into Christie’s tiny flat, they do not know that he has already killed several young women and buried their bodies in the back garden of the house. When Christie offers to help Beryl have an abortion, neither she nor her husband know that it is just the latest plan Christie has hatched to lure a woman to her death.
