Review of 'The Limehouse Golem'
Very bloody and violent, and rather graphic. It makes an attempt at the 'unreliable narrative' theme that underlies the book but I don't think it does it terribly well. It looks great, rather in the way that 'Penny Dreadful' does - um, why are we so keen to watch stuff about the cruelty and brutality of Victorian London?
Not surprised that this was not in cinemas for long - I'd meant to go see it, but it was gone before I got the chance. Bill Nighy plays one of his regular slightly confused characters, but it's not his usual sort of film - it's close to horror.
Watched on TV via Chromestream and Chromecast, following informal distribution.
