From Hell


Set in 1888, this visually stunning -- and horribly graphic -- film takes some liberties with an investigation into the notorious Jack the Ripper serial murders. The hero is a drug-addicted police inspector, who further complicates his own investigation by falling in love with a prostitute, who is a potential victim. Throw in the full spectrum of London, from the streets to high society and its secret organisations, and unravelling the murders becomes a nerve-jangling adventure.
