New York Post
Gripping and stylish thriller.
80
Wall Street Journal
Ambitious, visually stunning and hugely accomplished.
67
Portland Oregonian
A tug-of-war between a bracing vision of a truly infernal crime spree -- complete with engaging whodunit storytelling -- and a sometimes clumsy period drama.
60
An astonishing act of synthesis, bringing together disparate Ripper theories and a fiercely idiosyncratic version of London's history, architecture, policing and social structure.
60
So beautifully realized as a mood piece that it takes a while for a slight disappointment to register.
50
With almost as many subplots as corpses, the movie maintains its mild watchability only because the Ripper saga still engrosses.
40
It is deeply unpleasant to see women abducted, tortured and eviscerated by a methodical and meticulous butcher.
40
Film Threat
Could have been a beautiful and suspenseful thriller, lukewarm performances make the film just another movie to add to one's "rent-it-when-it-comes-to-DVD" list.
38
Baltimore Sun
A visionary sort of horror movie should ponder three words: "Bram Stoker's Dracula."
38
Philadelphia Inquirer
Feels stagy, stiff and entirely unnecessary.
