Storyline

A great murder mystery. The only clue to a mad killer's identity is his shoes! The crime's only witness saw them while she was bent over picking something up. Duryea is fantastic as the "nice guy next door" who just happens to be a homicidal maniac. A great twist ending. A gem...highly recommended. From 16mm. Written by Anonymous

Classic British thriller
22 January 2009 | by nova-63See all my reviews

A very unusual and effective British thriller. Duryea stars as a down and out man who plots a kidnapping. A series of events lead to the child's death. Duryea is still desperate for cash and tries to make arrangements to pick up the ransom. Police become aware of the child's death and lay a trap. The kidnapper slips through the police net but there is a witness. A neighbour was at the phone booth and saw the kidnapper leave the scene.

What makes this unusual thriller so good is the relationship between the kidnapper and his wife. They are desperate people who wish they could turn back time and the kidnapping had never happened. Duryea is a slightly slimy crook, his wife (Gwen Watford) sees her husband's flaws but she remains devoted.

A twist shock ending really brings this story to a crashing conclusion.
