The Limehouse Golem
Peter Ackroyd’s Victorian murder mystery - deliciously atmospheric.
Director: Juan Carlos Medina
Cast includes: Bill Nighy
Bill Nighy’s detective leads a fine cast in this deliciously atmospheric adaptation of Peter Ackroyd’s Victorian murder mystery. It’s 1880 in London’s notoriously seedy Limehouse district, where a series of murders have spooked the locals so much they begin to suspect the killer must be a supernatural ‘golem’. Scotland Yard detective Kildare (Nighy) is brought in to investigate a long list of suspects.
A refreshingly feminist take on Dickensian-era thrillers that is filled with murder, mayhem, and mystery.
