  • Complete Monster: Seemingly mild-mannered John Christie is in truth a depraved Serial Killer. Based upon the crimes of his real-life counterpart, Christie opens the film drugging, sexually assaulting and strangling a woman to death. When the Evans family moves in and the wife Beryl wants help with an abortion, Christie pretends to assist her, only to assault and murder her, before manipulating the hapless husband Tim into taking blame while also murdering Tim's baby daughter Geraldine. Framing Tim, Christie acts as a witness against him at trial to ensure Tim hangs for the crime. Christie later murders his own wife when she suspects him and then another woman before finally being arrested with a body count that numbers at least eight women before the Evans family.

How well does it match the trope?
