SEE NO EVIL is a chilling drama is based on the infamous true-life crimes of Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. During the mid-60's the pair abducted and murdered five people; three children and two teenagers, four of which were buried in the Yorkshire Moors. Maxine Peak (SHAMELESS) and Sean Harris (CREEP) star as the notorious killers in this extensively researched account of the horrific events.
This is the best DVD I have watched on the Moors Murders.
Told through the eyes of Hindley's sister and brother-in-law, Maureen and David Smith, it focuses on how Hindley and Brady were brought to justice.
Sean Harris who plays Brady comes across as extremely sinister, unnerving and very psychotic whilst Maxine Peak portrays Hindley uncannily well as the cold emotionless killer she was. You can almost feel the electricity between Hindley and Brady.
It takes a 'special' kind of person to carry on as 'normal' whilst all the time knowing there are four children buried on the moor. Chilling.
Joanne Froggatt and Michael McNulty play equally superb parts. The emotional pain and turmoil the Smiths faced during and after the trail was very well executed.
The Moors Murders did not only wreck the lives of the children's families but wrecked the lives of Brady and Hindley's families too.
Last but not least, George Costigan who played DCI Joe Mounsey, the copper who never stopped looking for the graves.
Hats off to him for some fabulous acting and to the real Joe Mounsey for his dogged persistence.
The film is portrayed with as much empathy and consideration for the families as possible and due respect is shown to them.
Watch this film but be prepared to be left feeling very hollow and very sad.
