The Limehouse Golem **There may be Spoilers Ahead**
There’s a feeling of Sherlock, English Drama’s, and the dark grittiness of old London. Horses and carriages, long dresses, the early police forces, and the things people did to survive.
Limehouse is a district in East London, which was one of the poorest areas but its inhabitants came from a wide variety of backgrounds. The characters in the movie are largely fictional portrayals of real (sometimes famous) people living in Limehouse at the time – although some of the facts are true. The Limehouse Golem is said to have roamed the streets of London before Jack the Ripper.
The Limehouse Golem Movie Review Conclusion
I will watch it again – loved this movie. I wasn’t sure what to expect as I previously knew very little about the Limehouse Golem history. But the trailers intrigued me. Loved the characters and the stories ability to keep me guessing. Bill Naghy is always good to watch and Olivia Cooke was amazing.
