The Black Panther 1977 18

98 mins United Kingdom Director. Ian Merrick

Directed by Ian Merrick, this gripping crime drama charts the killing spree which Donald Neilson, aka the Black Panther, perpetrated across England during the mid-70s, culminating in the kidnapping and death of a 17-year old girl. Told with meticulous accuracy and refraining from any measure of sensationalism, this is a fascinating, disturbing film.

This title is also available on DVD / Blu-ray in the BFI’s Flipside collection.
