The Limehouse Golem (15)

Still from Limehouse Golem

Bill Nighy stars as an inspector on the hunt for a serial killer whose crimes are so gruesome some believe a mythical ‘golem’ is responsible in this mystery drama set in Victorian London.

With the city gripped in fear after another brutal murder, Inspector Kildare (Bill Nighy), is under the pressure of Scotland Yard who are faced with a long list of suspects. With the help of a witness who is facing her own legal problems (Olivia Cooke) Inspector Kildare is lead to possible culprits such as music hall performer Dan Leno (Douglas Booth) as he hurries to stop the murders.  

This gripping whodunnit is reminiscent of the tales of Sweeny Todd and Jack the Ripper but with a fresh new twist.
