Movie Info

The Crimes of Stephen Hawke opens at a BBC radio studio, where a variety program is being broadcast. After the singing duo of Flotsam and Jetsom and a comic butcher perform, Tod Slaughter appears as himself to perform a radio play about Stephen Hawkes. Hawkes is, to all appearances, a model of kindliness and decorum. A money-lender, he is compassionate and caring toward his clients, and extremely attentive to his lovely daughter, Julia, whose beauty and innocence make her attractive to many suitors. But Hawkes is not all that he appears. In his guise as {The Spine Breaker}, he is a merciless and notorious murderer, viciously killing his victims in a gory and painful manner. Aided by his assistant, a strange hunchback, the first killing the audience sees involves an obnoxious but otherwise undeserving child. Eventually, Hawkes even kills his best friend; when the friend's son, Matthew discovers the truth, he vows to hunt down Hawkes himself. ~ Craig Butler, Rovimore

All Critics (1)

Something a little different -- and very much the same, too -- from Britain's horror meister Tod Slaughter, The Crimes of Stephen Hawke is a pure melodramatic delight.

Audience Reviews for The Crimes Of Stephen Hawke

½

A really good movie about a man living two lives; one normal and one disturbing. The story is really good, but this movie could have been better.
