Storyline

During WW II, one of the hits of the London stage is a play about a murderer who strangles his victims.

Goofs

The establishing shot is a stock picture of the British House of Parliament. Apparently no one noticed that it was printed backwards, as the building is on the wrong side of the Thames. See more »

An eerie little B-movie
16 January 2006 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

The Brighton Strangler is another movie that BBC2 shown in the early hours over Christmas/New Year 2005-06 and I was certainly glad I taped this.

An actor who plays the part of The Brighton Strangler in the play of the same name is knocked unconscious by rubble during an air raid and has a memory lapse. When he wakes up, he thinks he is in the play and heads for Brighton instead of Canterbury, where he is meant to go. In Brighton, he starts strangling people including the Mayor and Chief Inspector. Police catch up with him in the end and realise what's happened to him.

The Brighton Strangler is rather eerie in parts, especially the nighttime scenes.

The cast includes John Loder in the title role and Jane Duprez, Ian Wolfe.

Watch this if you get the chance. Very eerie and obscure little movie.

Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
