“Those who enjoy Netflix’s true-crime vault will lap this up, but be warned: watching it will make you long for a cleansing shower and a walk in the sunshine.” -- Sarah Morgan, ON MAGAZINE
A hugely underseen British effort, l stands alongside HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER as one of the most unflinching true-crime films of its era. February, 1983. Detectives are called to a suburban London address following reports of drains clogged with human remains. A mild-mannered civil servant is brought in for questioning, leading to one of the most disturbing serial murder cases ever to rock Britain. This gritty retelling of the “British Jeffery Dahmer” case by a very young Fhiona-Louise (21 years old at the time of filming) picked up the 1990 UCCA Venticittà Award at the Venice Film Festival.
