10 Rillington Place Blu-ray cover

10 Rillington Place | 2 October 2017 | £13.99

This classic British chiller is the horrifying true story of serial killer John Christie, played to unnerving effect by Richard Attenborough. When Timothy Evans (John Hurt) and his wife (Judy Geeson) rent a tiny room in Christie’s terraced house, they are unaware that they have sealed their fates and that they will fall foul of Christie's perverse and murderous scheme. 

Shot in the original street where Christie's crimes were perpetrated, Richard Fleischer's stark, unsensational depiction uses exteriors from the actual house as part of its grim recreation of the events.

Indicator Blu-ray Special Edition features:

  • 4K restoration 
  • Audio commentary with actress Judy Geeson and film historians Lem Dobbs and Nick Redman 
  • Audio commentary with acclaimed actor John Hurt 
  • Introduction by Sir Richard Attenborough (2 mins): an appreciation by the great actor 
  • Interview with Sir Richard Attenborough (20 mins): Attenborough discusses many aspects of the film 
  • Being Beryl (2016, 22 mins): new interview with Judy Geeson 
  • Isolated score track 
  • Image gallery: promotional photography
  • Original theatrical trailer 
  • New and improved English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
