Based on Ludovic Kennedy’s investigative book, this is the true and horrifying story of serial killer John Christie, chillingly played by Richard Attenborough. When Timothy Evans (John Hurt) and his wife (Judy Geeson) move into Christie’s tiny flat, they do not know that they are now part of the latest plan Christie has hatched to lure yet another woman to her death and pin the blame on Evans, who is soon afterwards hanged. It is only when fate exposes the crimes of the death-house at 10 Rillington Place in London, that Christie is brought to justice and all of England rethinks its views of the death penalty.

Starting in 1949, the Evans family: Timothy, his wife Beryl and their baby daughter Geraldine, arrived at Christie's dingy Rillinton Place address to rent the flat on the top floor. Christie had already killed two women by this time and would continue to do so after the Evans's had gone. Timothy Evans was a compulsive liar of rather limited intelligence and it was his gullibility combined with Christie's manipulative talents which would eventually get him into trouble.
Posing as a backyard abortionist, Christie sets to work on the newly-pregnant Beryl with predictably awful results and this is one of the most distressing scenes in this very disturbing film. He then convinces Evans that he should leave or face the consequences, promising to place the baby in the care of some friends in Acton. For Evans, as if things weren't bad enough already, they only get worse from here.
Shot in the original street and using exteriors fronm the actual house, the film has a very stark confronting look with a seedy brown look, all accentuated by the quietness and lack of music.Read more ›
I saw it on television when I was around seventeen or so, and it scared me badly. Ominous, dark and saturated with an all pervading uneasiness throughout, it WILL remain in the memory always.Pat Heywood who plays Mrs. Christie looks petrified, she knows, and in one chilling segment Reg in all consuming self-pity declares: "I should be in hospital" Mrs. Christie replies: "I know where you should be.." I'll never forget the look she gave him.
Even the authentic exterior street scenes are unsettling.
Truly a horrible case that occurred in our time-essential viewing for the stout hearted.
Truly a masterpiece that will never be bettered.
If you are expecting a slasher type fim then this is not for you. If you want a film that is dark, creepy and atmospheric with a top notch script and performances then this is definately for you. Don't be put off by the fact that it was made in 1971. As good today as it ever was.
There's been no attempt made to polish the setting for the film, it's presented in a grim way which adds to the realism of this true-life story (although this is a film based on a book of events rather than a de-facto documentary film, but it certainly seems as close to the truth as we'll ever know). Richard Attenborough is absolutely brilliant as the disturbing John Christie. His slow, deliberate, soft-spoken delivery help create the persona of an intelligent man who can ask if you want a cup of tea in a way which sends shivers down your spine.
Such a scene stealing character would threaten to swamp the film, but John Hurt balances out the cast as the considerably less articulate John Evans. It would have been easy to have presented the characters as two-dimensional, but instead of being stereotyped as the `calculating killer' and `the simple one' - the actors bring a depth which makes the film a compelling watch.
When you watch Attenborough in his portrayal of the quiet serial killer, you are reminded of a much more famous and fictional one - Hannibal Lector. I'm not saying that Hopkins' Lector was influenced by Attenborough's Christie but there are some similarities, and in a scene set in a homeless shelter Attenborough looks eerily like everyone's favourite cannibal.Read more ›
