Fear is the Key (IB Tech Print)

In the right hands, fear is the deadliest weapon of all. Following the murder of his wife and daughter, a man (Vanishing Point‘s Barry Newman) plots his revenge by posing as a criminal and kidnapping the daughter of an oil tycoon (Suzy Kendall) to draw out the killers. Filled with twists, stunning car chases, espionage thrills and tons of cool, Fear is the Key is an unpredictable and underrated gem!

Meet Vic Dakin. Then wish you hadn’t. Michael Tuchner’s feature directorial debut (based on the 1968 British crime novel The Burden of Proof) follows Richard Burton as Vic Dakin, the sadistic overlord of one of London’s most notorious criminal empires. The good guys are closing in and Dakin is becoming increasingly entombed in his own sexual and physical brutality as he races to silence those who might betray him. Most stories have a hero. This one has a Villain.
