Trivia

  • Filmed in the real Rillington Place, which had changed its name to Ruston Close after the notorious killings. However, the house that was used was not 10 Rillington Place. The street was demolished in the year after the film's release to make way for the Westway urban motorway.

    In October 1944, John Christie lured 32-year-old Muriel Eady to his flat, under the promise of curing the catarrh [disorder of inflammation of the mucous membranes in one of the airways] by using a special inhaler. Christie made Muriel a cup of tea to relax her and then brought out his inhaler, gassed Muriel with the carbon monoxide. While unconscious and unable to struggle, Christie placed her on the floor, and while strangling her, had intercourse with her until she died. Christie then buried her in the garden.

    On September 1, 1943, 21-year-old Ruth Fuerst was reported missing. She worked at a munitions factory, and lived in a flat a few blocks from 10 Rillington Place. The day before, Ruth had met John Christie and went to his flat. John Christie strangled Ruth, hid her body under the floorboards of the living room. Later that night, Christie exhumed Ruth from the floorboards and buried her in the garden.
