 MMI Movie Review: 10 Rillington Place   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Evans was neither a bright nor an honest defendant and his contrived confession led directly to the hangman, thus freeing Christie to end the lives of other victims.
This is a grim, unpleasant tale, and altogether different in tone and scope from Richard Fleischer's prior fact-based entries, 1959's "Compulsion" and 1968's "The Boston Strangler." There is no attempt to explain or excuse Christie and the sheer matter-of-factness of his crimes is the most terrifying aspect of this film.
Adding to the horror is the fact that "10 Rillington Place" was shot, complete with meticulous period detail, on location at the actual address where Christie committed his dastardly deeds.
