Positively surprised! Very truthful and John Hurt's acting in particular is very good. Tim Evans perhaps came across as a bit too intelligent (watch some documentaries on this case and you'll see what I mean).

Never before have I seen a serial killer portrayed so realistically (apart from Mr. Attenborough's overacting). Characters like John Doe and Hannibal Lecter are entertaining and even impressive, but far from realistic serial killers. The director of 10 Rillington Place took a close look at the actual events and people and the film was even shot at the scene of the disaster.

**** I've enjoyed it.

An excellent film that is great to spend an evening with and afterwards you can confidently say that you did not kill the time, but spent it well.

The story runs smoothly and the great thing about it is that it actually happened. Of course not nice for those involved, but for the truthfulness of the film.

We have also seen the remake Rillington Place (2016) and both are almost identical in story. The remake is a bit longer (167 minutes) and has a slightly darker atmosphere.

This original scores 0.2 higher on IMDb than the remake. On Moviemeter the difference is 0.24*.

So there is little difference and the viewer who has seen both can confirm that.

This has been on my watch list for a while. A story about a London serial killer some 60 years after Jack the Ripper. I didn't know anything about this Christie, I looked him up and I noticed that there are physical similarities with Richard Attenborough in the film. The similarities are also striking between Timothy Evans and the young John Hurt.

In any case, a very distressing situation for the conservative and unfortunately not very bright Evans. He cannot read or write and sometimes appears very confused. As if sometimes things are going a bit too fast for him. An ideal victim for the left-wing, reasoned Christie.

10, Rillington Place, it's a dingy place, dark and dirty with those brown-gray walls and dilapidated furniture. Set and decor were certainly a plus, as was the acting. In the London district of Notting Hill actually, I had other associations with it, until now...

The court portion may have drawn too much attention, but it is important in itself if you know how Evans fared (and what happened to his body in the 1960s).
