Directed by Ian Merrick, this slick crime drama tells the story of Donald Neilson's killing spree across England in the mid-70s.

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 is at long last made available for a new generation of genre film fans to experience.
