Rillington Place

  • Hollywood stars Tim Roth and Samantha Morton lead the cast in this gripping drama about notorious serial killer John Reginald Christie. In 1950, Timothy Evans was hanged for the murder of his baby daughter Geraldine. It was also widely believed that he had killed his wife Beryl. But to his final moments Evans protested his innocence. Years later, a gruesome discovery revealed that his neighbour – star prosecution witness Reg Christie – was not only the real killer but also responsible for the deaths of six other women, including his own wife Ethel. Set in the dark confines of Christie’s home, 10 Rillington Place, this powerful drama imagines the relationships between Christie, his wife Ethel and the innocent young Evans couple. How did Christie get away with murder for so long? What twisted influence did he hold over the young newly-weds Evans and Beryl? And how was he able to trick both judge and jury into sending an innocent man to the executioner?
