The Limehouse Golem

Cinema

Directed by Juan Carlos Medina | 2017 | UK | Starring Olivia Cooke, Bill Nighy, Douglas Booth, Daniel Mays, Eddie Marsan, Henry Goodman | 105mins | Certificate 15 

A lurid British horror-thriller written by Jane Goldman, based on Peter Ackroyd's murder mystery novel. 

Bill Nighy plays a Scotland Yard detective in this lurid British horror-thriller written by Jane Goldman. Co-starring Henry Goodman as Karl Marx.

As Kildare investigates suspects including Karl Marx and novelist George Gissing, his path crosses that of music-hall performer Elizabeth (Cooke) and they begin a series of conversations looking back into her past... 

Vividly shot - in particular the Golem's macabre crime scenes - and lit up further by Goldman's urgent, witty script and the cast's uniformly terrific performances, it's an immensely enjoyable whodunnit. 

Warning: the film contains some graphic scenes of violence and sexual references.

Part of the Hampstead and Highgate Literary Festival.
