Certification15 Our Rating

Creepy, "kitchen-sink" style dramatisation of the horrifying true story of mass-murderer John Christie. Attenborough is superbly sinister as the perverted killer who did away with his young lodger, amongst others, leaving her simple-minded husband Timothy Evans to swing for it. Morbidly fascinating. find out more...
AILEEN (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

Two disturbing but insightful documentaries of Aileen Wuornos, infamous as America's first female serial killer. The first of Broomfield's films deals with Wuornos while on death row awaiting her execution and paints a sympathetic picture of an undeniably damaged human being. The second film looks into the torturous childhood that created the ‘Monster', and together the two documentaries raise some worrying questions about the validity of the American legal system and its close association with find out more...

DAHMER (2001)

Certification15 Our Rating

Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer was responsible for the murder of seventeen young men in the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Not only did he kill them he then dismembered them and on some occasions even had a nibble. Dahmer is a potentially fascinating if deeply macabre insight into the world of serial killer, unfortunately some dodgy dramatic scripting and directing relieves the film of much of its credibility. find out more...
ED GEIN (2000)

Certification15 Our Rating

The inspiration for a number of films, in-particular 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' this is a rather more accurate account of the serial killer Ed Gein, a devoutly religious man living alone on the family farmstead after the death of his mother and choosing as his hobby the fortunately unconventional pastime of murdering young women and wearing their skin. Ed Gein is a disturbing psychological horror, perhaps given more weight by the knowledge that he really existed. find out more...

Set against the political backdrop of a government more concerned with suppression than investigation, Memori find out more...
