Critic Reviews for Rillington Place Miniseries

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Tim Roth quickly establishes Christie as a loathsome creep whose pathetic physical appearance belies an aggressively brazen dishonestly and insidious evil.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Boasting the psychological depth of a Wikipedia entry, Rillington presents some of the most horrific human behavior possible while never asking what motivates such extreme actions.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

It's hardly Christmassy, but as period murder mysteries go, it's a worthy replacement for The Missing.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The story is as grisly and horrific as you might expect.

Jun 22, 2018 | Full Review…

All very grim and ominous, but the first part of Rillington Place is a slow burn that's never anything short of completely captivating.

Mar 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Rillington Place is a solid miniseries that is worth watching.

Audience Reviews for Rillington Place: Miniseries

  • Nov 25, 2017
    Despite the reality based subject matter, this is not an exploitational movie. Viewers seeking violence and gore will be disappointed. For the rest of us, it’s a study of evil — its existence, its manifestation, and its consequences for innocent and guilty alike. Superbly filmed with a first-rate cast. Roth's restrained delivery of a seemingly innocuous man who contains a monster will make your blood run cold.
