In this thriller, Richard Attenborough portrays a serial killer in 1940s London who has, thus far, gotten away with murdering women in his modest flat. When a new young couple moves into his building, he sees a chance to acquire not just a new victim but also an unsuspecting man he can frame for the crime. The film stars John Hurt and Judy Geeson as the objects of the killer's murderous attention. It was based on true events, and it was released in 1971 to mixed reviews. In the decades since the film's initial release, the critical consensus has moved in a more positive direction.
