The Limehouse Golem Film Review
7 September 2017 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

The new horror thriller film set in the Victorian Era The Limehouse Golem starring Bill Nighy, Olivia Cooke, Douglas Booth, Eddie Marsan, Daniel Mays.

The Limehouse Golem is set on the unforgiving, squalid streets of Victorian London in 1880, our tale begins in the baroque, grandiose music hall where the capital's most renowned performer Dan Leno (English actor Douglas Booth - Noah, Jupiter Ascending) takes to the stage. The whimsical thespian performs a monologue, informing his dedicated audience of the ghastly fate of a young woman who had once adorned this very stage, his dear friend Elizabeth "Lizzie" Cree (English actress Olivia Cooke - Me And Earl And The Dying Girl, Ouija); for the beguiling songstress is facing up to her forthcoming death by hanging, having been accused of murdering her husband John Cree (Australian actor Sam Reid - '71, The Riot Club). Lizzie's death seems inevitable, until Detective Inspector John Kildare (English actor Bill Nighy - Love Actually, Shaun Of The Dead) is assigned to the case of the Limehouse Golem – a nefarious, calculating serial killer, murdering innocent, unconnected victims, leaving behind barely identifiable corpses – and his distinctive signature in blood. All is not what it seems and everyone is a suspect and everyone has a secret.

Amongst the other actors / actresses in The Limehouse Golem includes English actor Eddie Marsan (The World's End, Mission: Impossible 3) as Uncle, English actor Daniel Mays (UK TV Series Mrs. Biggs, Welcome To The Punch) as policeman George Flood, Spanish actress María Valverde (Exodus: Gods And Kings) as Aveline Ortega, English actor Adam Brown (The Hobbit films, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) as Mr. Gerrard, English actor Henry Goodman (Avengers: Age Of Ultron, The Damned United) as Karl Marx, Morgan Watkins (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Suffragette) as George Gissing, Egyptian actor Damien Thomas (Julius Caesar, Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger) as Salomon Weil, Peter Sullivan (The Jackal, TV Series The Borgias) as Inspector Roberts, Amelia Crouch (The Huntsman: Winter's War, Alice Through The Looking Glass) as Young Lizzie and Republic Of Ireland actress Siobhán Cullen (The Inside, Jimi: All Is By My Side) as Sister Mary.

Overall The Limehouse Golem is a good horror thriller film filled with weird bizarre stuff, gory violence, theatre shows and plays, drama, police, detectives, a good insight in to the way of life back in the Victorian Era in the 1880's the time period The Limehouse Golem is set in, darkness, dark alley ways, murders, murder suspects, red herrings, a classic whodunnit murder cases, horse and carriages, old style black cars, a race against time to find out the killer to seek justice, some hard hitting scenes and many other things throughout the film.

So I will give The Limehouse Golem an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars and The Limehouse Golem is worth seeing if you like films along the lines of the Sherlock Holmes films that Guy Ritchie directed and films set in the Victorian Era like From Hell amongst others.

So if you get the chance to see The Limehouse Golem in the cinema then you should go and see it sooner than later.
