Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Directed by Ian Merrick, this intelligent crime drama charts the infamous killing spree which Donald Neilson, aka The Black Panther, perpetrated across England during the mid-70s, culminating in the kidnapping and murder of a 17-year old girl. Told with uncommon accuracy and refraining from any measure of sensationalism, this fascinating and disturbing film fell foul of a media-driven campaign upon its original cinema release which resulted in an effective ban.

Remastered from the original film elements preserved at the BFI National Archive, this impressive and powerful film was made available again in 2012 for a new generation of genre film fans to experience, and is now re-released with an especially designed new cover.
