Trivia

Though only appearing in the movie briefly, philosopher Karl Marx was indeed living in London at the time the movie is set. Both as a Jew and due to his socialist ideas, he was actually harassed by the police and was -briefly- considered as a suspect of the Jack the Ripper murders. See more »

Goofs

When Eddie Marsan's character 'Uncle' strips off to reveal a chest full of tattoos many are obviously 'temporary' stick on ones (especially below his right shoulder). See more »

Costume slasher movie can't support its ambitions.
3 November 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A mash up of Se7en and The Elephant Man, this one is stylish but over long and relentlessly grim.

With a nod to the Jack the Ripper murders this one is set in London's underclass Limehouse, where Inspector under a cloud Nighy arrives to investigate the succession of "Golem" slasher murders. Suspects include comedian Dan Leno and a bushy bearded Karl Marx. Nighy's investigation gets involved with hard working actress wife Olivia Cooke's trial for poisoning her husband.

Alternating between the British Museum and Leno's tacky music hall attention shifts to Cooke's back story with lots of oppression of women, class warfare, homoerotic suspicions, opium dens and politicking at the Yard.

Cast and design are superior but this one is not a fun outing.
