Critic Reviews for The Limehouse Golem
It translates novelist Peter Ackroyd's densely historical and cerebral foray into the horror genre into an entertainment, without being weighed down by Ackroyd's numerous fascinating but imaginative layers and tangents.
... this nasty little Victorian London horror film has more than a few blood-soaked charms of its own.
A Victorian-era gothic stew that, although perhaps not as ultimately satisfying as it might have been, nevertheless provides for an unsettling two hours.
Adequate as comfort food, but fails as anything else.
Marrying fact and fiction, Jane Goldman's seamy screenplay is wildly overstuffed; but the director, Juan Carlos Medina, gives the music hall scenes a rowdy authenticity.
Audience Reviews for The Limehouse Golem
I did enjoy the delightful dialogue and solid performances, but this Victorian-era detective story tries so hard to be smart and surprising (with an "unexpected" big twist in the end) that it doesn't realize how predictable it is in its baffling stupidity.
