Movie trailer


If you are all caught up with Penny Dreadful and all your TV shows, might I suggest this film. Because, IF you like "Penny Dreadful" you will probably love this film. It has the same eerie Victorian gothic feel too it... and its full of all the same taboo stuff as Penny! :) Give it a watch... Its a great film. I've seen it over 20 times! ;)
A solid take on Jack the Ripper, great cast specially Ian Holm and Johnny Depp. The plot is amazing, fantastic atmosphere,the story support one theory among many about the ripper, excellent cinema, highly recommended. a creepy 8.5/10 . Tks to linkers.
Well, that make's you think.....Some of which is Very believable....
From Hell is a 2001 American/British crime thriller mystery film directed by the Hughes brothers and loosely based on the comic book series of the same name by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell about the Jack the Ripper murders. The original comic's writer, Alan Moore, did not have anything good to say about the film. He was reportedly disgusted that his "gruff" version of Frederick Abberline was replaced with an "absinthe-swigging dandy" and that the story was changed from an existentialist historical fiction into a mundane "whodunit". This, being the first of the film adaptations of Moore's books, was his first step towards disavowing all film adaptations of his work.

I think "Anonymous" has been bored all of these critiques are by the same person. Writing comments is probably better than watching this movie anyway.

Already rated: From Dusk Till Dawn (Lists)

From Hell tells the graphic story of Jack "The Ripper" from the eyes of the lead investigator on the case (Depp). With strong performances, good direction,and startling and shocking moments, the film never disappoints.

Johnny Depp is magnificent. Heather Graham is passable as the hooker with a golden heart. Ian Holm is scary as the man who is Jack "The Ripper". The movie just does a number of things right that add up to a class A film. The production design and set design is dazzling. I really enjoy this film.

Just a quick note about Depp. He's another one of those amazing character actors that loves a challenge. He always seems to take the quirkiest of roles and never disappoints. He is always entertaining and fun to watch.
I never really knew much about Jack the Ripper before I watched this movie. But, it's really fascinating. This movie comes highly recommended. I also recommend another point of view: Portrait of a Killer - Jack The Ripper: Case Closed by Patricia Cornwell.

FROM HELL (2001)

i've seen this a bunch of times and it's great. i also have the comic book, so by looking at this film from the perspective of a comic book, i think it's a good adaptation. visually, it's stunning. the genius of having americans direct films that take place in foreign countries is that they have a fresh outlook on that place, and here the Hughes Brothers have a very interesting take on 19th century london. with the red and the green tint they give things and their use of long shadows, this is great to watch. johnny depp is once again spot on with his performance as the detective with opium induced visions about the crimes. and the holmes/watson dynamic he has with the police guy is fairly amusing. it also manages to maintain its scare factor after multiple viewings, which is somewhat rare. and despite being based on a comic book, it raises some interesting points about the mystery of Jack the Ripper that make you go "hmm."
