Classic Trailer: Compulsion

Continuing to surprise us with the odd unexpected back catalogue gem, Vendetta Films are due to release Compulsion, Richard Fleischer's 1959 take on the notorious "crime of the century" case of Leopold and Loeb, two college students who murdered a fourteen-year-old boy solely to see if they could commit the "perfect time". The case has also inspired films like Funny Games, Murder by Numbers and perhaps most famously, Alfred Hitchcock's Rope. Fleischer's film is considered one of the most faithful to the story. Essential viewing for fans of true crime flicks. Here's the trailer:
